Listen Closely:

No matter where you live in the United States, from Puerto Rico to Alaska, from Hawaii to Boston, from New Orleans to Madison, Wisconsin, if you listen carefully with an open your heart, you can hear the cries, whimpers and moans from the millions of animals locked away in our nation's laboratories.

If you live in North Carolina you may have difficulty sleeping once you hear the wails from the thousands of animals being experimented on at Wake Forest University.

Perhaps you can hear the dogs in Che-Ping Cheng's experiments when they awaken from the surgery that has turned their bodies into fully instrumented living laboratories. The conscious dogs will be experimented on for eight months before they are killed to explore why chronic alcohol consumption can damage the heart.

If you walk down Medical Center Boulevard and listen carefully, you may be able to hear the moans coming from all the cocaine and heroin addicted monkeys locked away in the Center for the Neurobiological Investigation of Drug Abuse .

Thousands of animals are under attack at Wake Forest; each and every one is adequate justification for loud and critical protest across the nation against the callousness of a system unconcerned with their suffering and dismissive of your indignation.

Now is the time to begin considering what you will do to educate and alert the public about the plight of the animals being sacrificed at the foot of $cience in laboratories in your neighborhood and around the world.

Now is the time to begin planning events in your area.

As you consider, plan, and act, In Defense of Animals (IDA) will be there to help you. IDA can help you promote your events and actions by:

1. Preparing fact sheets to hand out at your events. If you have a university in your area it is very likely that animals are under attack in those labs. We can help you find out what is being done to them and who is doing it. Request this service early; demand is likely to be high.

2. Promoting your events on our WWAIL website. Last year, in the build up to WWAIL, our site received half a million hits. The public, the media, other activists, and the vivisection community can learn that efforts are growing and our resolve is strengthening.

3. Helping to place ads in campus and community newspapers. IDA will match up to $250 for placement of ads the week before your events. We can provide ready-made ads of any size. Place your organization's name next to ours and show that we stand together, unified and resolute.

4. Assisting you with news releases. IDA has worldwide faxing capability and literally thousands of media contacts in our database. Request this service early to assure you are served on time.

Big business and big $cience have consumed compassion. Now is the time to begin planning for WWAIL 2001. Fight back.
