No New Animal Lab

Yesterday, we entered World Week for Animals in Labs.  So I take the opportunity to ask everyone to engage in an action to improve conditions for — or free — animals living in labs around the world.  Not sure what to do?  You can start by reading up on the No New Animal Campaign at the University of Washington, which I’ve been supporting and following for the past four months.  If you are near Seattle (or you can make the trip!) consider attending these events:

Pack the Courtroom, Hearing in the lawsuit against the UW Regents
When: Friday, April 24, 9:00am
Where: King County Superior Court at 516 3rd Ave., Seattle
Facebook Event Page

March on the University of Washington
When: Saturday, April 25, 2:00pm
Where: Meet at Red Square on the UW Seattle campus
Facebook Event Page

If you aren’t in the area and can’t get there, check the campaign’s website for a local action near you.  And if there isn’t one near you, plan one!  Anyone in the DC area can contact my collective, DC Stampede.

You can also sign these petitions: Petitions
UW & Skanska: End plans to build a new animal lab
Conservation International: Stop Board Member Orin Smith from killing UW monkeys

And, lastly but not leastly, we hope you’ll consider joining our photo campaign to express why you don’t support a new animal testing lab.
