National Anti-Fur Week Demos, Hunt Sab Fundraising, Greyhound Action, and more

If you missed last Thursday's fortnightly planning meeting you'll have missed that Animal Aid have a day of action about Victims of Charity. Whilst the national initiative is on Saturday, Nottm campaigners were out on Friday highlighing vivisection conducted or funded by High Street names such as Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation, the Alzheimer's Society and Parkinson's UK.

Not only is animal research harmful to animals, it is also potentially harmful to people. Animals do not get the same diseases as we do, and different species react very differently to drugs and procedures. Drugs that are shown to be safe in animals have often later proved to be dangerous in humans, while valuable cures and treatments can be missed if they fail in animal tests.
