March to stop Oxford Animal Lab - January 29th

19-01-2005 00:56

The half built concrete structure that stands only ten minutes from Oxford city centre is a monument to cruelty and blind predjudice. Oxford University believe they can ignore the voices of those who expose their lies and deceit but not any longer. The chance to stop this animal abuse lab becoming a reality lies in our hands and we must not fail the countless thousands of animals that could one day become the future 'assets' of the university vivisectors. Oxford University does not want its academic image tarnished by its unwillingness to stop the discredited practice of abusing animals in the name of science but no recourse to injunctions and bully boy tactics will stop us SPEAKING out for the voiceless. Please make every effort to join the demo on the 29th January, your support is vital if we are to prevent the new lab from ever being built.

STOP THE OXFORD ANIMAL LAB, meet 12.30pm, Broad St, outside Balliol college, Oxford, OX1 3BJ.
