World Week of Action


Animals in Laboratories

20th - 26th






A global grassroots week of action


At last year's animal rights gathering where people normally plan the following year's world day for animals in laboratories, there was a long discussion about why numbers on marches have been dropping over the last few years, and whether poeple thought it might be more effective to focus on local group actions instead of a national march. It was felt that it would be inspiring for local groups to organise their own events and may enable them to get some new people involved. From this discussion we came up with the following idea...

World Week of Action for Animals in Laboratories

For this year's remembrance of animals in laboratories, rather than the traditional march, all actions will be organised by and for local groups or grassroots campaigns.

There will be a diverse range of activities challenging vivisection in as many ways as possible. These will include demonstrations, street stalls, film showings, solidarity for activists either in prison, facing or recovering from repression.
