April 22 - 28 is the World Week for Animals in Labratories (WWAIL), an annual event designed to expose the suffering of animals used for testing and research. During WWAIL, events around the world take place which seek to educate the public about what really goes on behind the closed doors of animal research facilities and about the scientific, moral, and economic objections to animal testing, also known as vivisection.
The time has come for dramatic change. With a wide and growing array of non-animal research methods rendering vivisection increasingly obsolete, animal experiments conducted today could be eliminated with the full-scale implementation of non-animal methods - without risk to human health. However, the research, drug and chemical industries - entrenched in animal research for legal, economic and political reasons - perpetuate the myth that animal experimentation is necessary.
Join [email protected] on April 21st as we kick off WWAIL 2007 with a demonstration about the horrors of vivisection.
WHEN: Saturday April 21, 2007
WHERE: Yonge & Dundas, SOUTHWEST corner
TIME: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Posters and leaflets provided.
For each day during WWAIL, [email protected] will be unveiling a special challenge that everyone can do from home to help end animal experimentation and we hope that you'll help us spread the word by forwarding our WWAIL challenges to all your family and friends. Let's end this mad science once and for all.
Check out [email protected]'s new online store! We're so excited about our new merchandise and you can shop with 100% security online at our Cafe Press store. We'll be added more and more merchandise within the next little while.
You can also buy [email protected] buttons designed by Healing Heart Designs at http://www.myspace.com/healingheartdesigns. HHD is a local vegan clothing company and proceeds from the sale of the buttons will be helping to support [email protected]!
Calling all bands! Are you in a band? Know a band? We will be having our first annual benefit in July 2007 and we are looking for bands to play in a downtown Toronto venue. Please contact us if you're interested by May 1st!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our first vivisection demo of the year this past weekend!
We heart animals,
