Animal Justice Project tell Nottingham University: ‘Stop testing on more than 25,000 animals a year’!

Animal Justice Project are calling for the University of Nottingham to end its testing on more than 25,000 animals a year – of which 132 experiments were classed as ‘severe.’ In 2016, 25,449 procedures were conducted on animals at the University of Nottingham. Animals involved in research include mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, ferrets, pigs, sheep, cattle and fish.

We conducted the protest on the 7th February with one of our eye-catching Light Brigades in Nottingham and took the opportunity to speak with members of the public who wanted to know more about our campaigns, and the animal experimentation taking place inside Nottingham University. Supportive members of the public beeped their horns, cheered and even joined our protest!

We illuminated the words “Notts Uni Tortures Animals” across the tram bridge/Ningbo Friendship bridge over Clifton Boulevard between 5.30pm to 7pm on.

While other universities are turning to humane, cutting-edge non-animal work, Nottingham University looks set to fly in the face of overwhelming public and scientific opinion by continuing its macabre practices on over 25,000 animals a year. The huge rise in veganism within Britain over the past decade has come about partly because of the public’s condemnation of our treatment of animals and the public will not tolerate cruel experiments going on behind Nottingham University’s doors.
