SPEAK Demo Report from Oxford Labs

04-08-2008 15:03

Police assess the damage of the crash on South Parks Rd, luckily no one was hurt
SPEAK Campaign supporters met opposite Oxford's new animal abuse lab to campaign against the University's barbaric treatment of the sentient beings who will be tortured and killed inside it, as they have done every week for the past four and a half years. Campaigners of all ages, some who have been with SPEAK from the beginning, others who have been drawn to the campaign more recently having heard the appalling truth about the horrors perpetrated against the animals imprisoned within university labs, spent the four hours of the demo informing the passing public of their opposition to vivisection at Oxford. These highly visual demos always receive much support from those passing in vehicles and on foot, and this week was no exception with gestures of support from a huge number of motorists and tourists on tour buses, and words of encouragement from pedestrians, many of whom stopped to talk to protesters and took leaflets.

DC Protests at HLS Customers

01-08-2008 12:25

On Friday, July 18, animal rights advocates celebrated the decision by Raymond James to dump their HLS stock by protesting at the offices of Merck, Sanofi-Aventis, and Novartis, all of which have yet to follow Raymond James's sensible lead. What began as a normal day for the greedy opportunists at Merck, Novartis, and Sanofi Aventis turned into one that they would hope to forget. Compassionate individuals descended upon their offices, protesting their continued use of the animal abusers at Huntingdon Life Sciences. With signs and bullhorns, activists took to the streets.

World Population Day, a day to celebrate humanity and not its curbing

30-07-2008 19:40

World Population Day should focus on not merely relating population growth to underdevelopment as has been the case in population conferences. Other factors such as socio-political factors such as policy and internal conflicts should also be part of the studies on population.
