Anti-Arms Trade Demo in London

The arms trade is something which effects a variety of different campaigns and movements, including animal rights. For example, all the arms made are tested on animals at places such as Yorkshire-based Covance Laboratories (Harrogate), Huntingdon Life Sciences and the infamous DSTL Porton Down. In the most resent expose of HLS, the Ministry of Defence were exposed as conducting viscious experiments on primates.

As does also need stating, the arms industry in its self is sickening; with their supplying of weapons used to kill and maim people.

In conjunction with the Disarm DSEI campaign, animal rights activists helped protest in the City of London againt a number or companies who invest in this sickening industry such as Barclays, AXA, Lloyds TSB and the Royal Bank of Scotland – all of which have also formerly taken part in investments and deals with vivisection organisations.

WYAR Supporting Harrods Fur Campaign

Activists from West Yorkshire Animal Rights Group attended the demonstration last Saturday at Harrods in London to show support with the campaign.

Harrods are the last UK department store willing to sell real fur so it is important that local groups help with the demonstrations in solidarity.

The protest was loud and visual, with many tourists stopping to take information about the fur trade.

As there are no fur shops left in the West Yorkshire area, this is something we will be doing on a regular basis.
