World Day for Laboratory Animals

World Day for Laboratory Animals is a United Nations recognized day of international commemoration of the suffering and killing of millions of innocent sentient beings in laboratories throughout the world.

Campaigning organisations in the UK and across the globe, will mark World Day for Laboratory Animals, a time to reflect upon the pain and suffering caused to millions of animals all in the name of a fraudulent scientific practice - a practice that is not only is so cruel to the animals so horribly abused and killed by vivisectors but a practice that so cruelly gives false hope to those with illness and disease.

Thousands of primates are poisoned to death every year inside laboratories and hundreds more are subjected to appalling brain experiments. New EU legislation could mean an end to the use of primates – our closest evolutionary relatives – in laboratories. To achieve this, the public must see what really happens to animals inside testing facilities and understand why research using animals is so overwhelmingly unreliable. Delivering the leaflet – which contains no gruesome images – is a powerful way to garner support for this vital campaign.
