Harlan Day Of Action


    As part of the run up to World Day for Animals In Laboratories (http://www.wdail.org/), activists from the local area converged for a day of action against Harlan Laboratories. Harlan breed beagles for the vivisection industry, including the notorious Huntingdon Life Sciences. They also offer their clients the option of purchasing ‘surgically-modified’ animals. This means that some beagles undergo surgery on Harlan premises so they are experiment-ready before being transported to a client’s laboratory.

    Harlan operate from a farm just outside of Loughborough near Belton where in the secrecy of the countryside, behind razor wire fences and concentration camp style security systems, they breed and butcher their dogs.

You bet, they die! Grand National demo: Nottingham


Saturday 6th April saw a dozen Nottingham activists stage a peaceful protest outside Ladbrokes betting shop in Nottingham city centre, to raise public awareness about the dark side of the Grand National, and also the wider horse and greyhound racing industries. The message was that there is no such thing as a harmless flutter, as if you bet on animal racing then you are literally betting with their lives.

McDonalds & KFC planning application

McDonalds have put in a planning application to open a branch at Clifton Lane, Nottingham NG11 8NA. They tried last year but were refused (see http://www.thisisnottingham.co.uk/Plans-pub-rejected/story-13164950-detail/story.html).

This time they've come back all guns blazing, and teamed up with KFC. Great.
