To mark World Day for Animals in Laboratories, Nottingham Animal Rights and Veggies joined Loughborough and Leicester Animal Concern (LLAC) at their annual vigil at Harlan Sera Lab Limited, Hillcrest, Dodgeford Lane, Loughborough, Leicestershire, LE12 9TE, animal breeders for the vivisection industry .

Hillcrest could be described as a 'factory farm for dogs'. It is in the sleepy countryside protected by razor wire fences, infrared surveillance cameras and unlimited police resources.
The dogs are destined to suffer in needless experiments.

Despite a long history of perfectly peaceful World Day protests at this location over many years, it was clear that this year might be different.

Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.
We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, ‘Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals’. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email email@example.com.
