Poster for the Freedom march and rally, 23rd July 2005, Oxford
23rd July 2005: On a cloudy but warm and dry Saturday afternoon in Oxford, around one thousand animals of the species Homo sapiens assembled in Oxpens Park for a demonstration against the torture and killing of non-human animals in the name of medical "science", and to mark a year since the construction of Oxford University's new vivisection laboratory was halted.

Brazilian did not wear bulky jacket

The more the LIES of the Bliar Government are peeled away, the more this looks like a deliberate murder, intended to keep an unintended witness silent. Who do the CCTV pictures show doing the actual shooting? Do they work for the London Police, or some other agency? Where was this man's call that morning? He was, after all, an electrician?
