Do you agree that there is no such thing as a “lab animal”? Do you find the idea of “humane animal research” to be an oxymoron? If so, please come to the protest against the American Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences (AALAS) on Nov. 4! This year, the AALAS is holding their annual convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center, so we need you to represent the animal liberation/rights community of the Twin Cities to let them know they are not welcome. This legal and peaceful protest will include a post-Halloween costume component to represent the many nonhumans that scientists use as lab experiments: mice, pigs, primates, dogs, etc. We ask that you make a commitment to attend this important protest, as it isn’t every day that animal tormentors all congregate in one place, and right in our back yard. We need as many people as possible to represent compassion in the face of institutionalized animal cruelty.
