The Chief Inspector of Lincolnshire police has been to visit the camp. No issue so far, the atmosphere of the camp is very peaceful and upbeat, and the police have offered campers refreshments. More activists are on the way to boost numbers, if you can join them please contact the camp mobile number: 07941184529.
Activists have occupied land near the entrance of Highgate Rabbit Farm in protest against their breeding of rabbits and ferrets for the vivisection industry. They supply several university and commercial laboratories, including Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). The campers are holding a peaceful occupation of the land, calling on the closure of the farm, and for the farmer Geoffrey Douglas to hand the animals over to a suitable organisation for rehoming.
