World Day for Animals in Laboratories 2019
Saturday 27th April @ 12:00 - 17:00
Join World Day for Laboratory Animals 2019!
Let’s make Saturday 27 April 2019 the biggest march for laboratory animals the UK has seen in recent years.
It will take place in Oxford – home to a university experimenting on the largest number of animals in Britain.
Each year inside British laboratories, around 4 million animals are experimented on. Every 8 seconds, one animal dies. Included are experiments on more than 600,000 animals. With over half of all animal experiments now taking place in universities it is crucial we speak out to end animal suffering and progress beyond wasteful, costly and cruel research.
Guest speakers throughout the day will be raising awareness about poor and cruel science behind animal experimentations and curiosity-driven research. There will vegan food and campaign stands, a media presence, exciting and creative stunts.
