WWAIL 2002 World Week For Animals In Laboratories

April 20 - 28, 2002
From In Defense of Animals - [email protected] 

An estimated 30 million animals are tortured and/or killed in U.S. labs every year.

Now is the time to speak out and fight back.

In addition to encouraging concerned citizens everywhere to participate in events against vivisection wherever it exists, In Defense of Animals WWAIL 2002 will target the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The EPA requires more chemical toxicity tests on animals than any other federal agency. These tests involve forcing animals to eat, inhale, or be injected with chemicals. An undisclosed number of animals -- likely to be in the millions -- die slow and painful deaths in these tests. And with all that, the EPA has not banned a single industrial chemical in more than 10 years.

Rather than working to reduce emissions and prevent human and environmental exposures to toxic chemicals, the EPA has instead chosen to establish "acceptable" exposure levels based on the results of misleading animals tests.

The EPA pours millions of taxpayer dollars into cruel and wasteful animal experiments, while spending virtually none of its $500 million annual research budget on the development of non-animal test methods.

It's time for change.

Speak out by protesting the EPA's animal tests by participating in an event in your area. IDA will provide brochures and posters specific to the EPA animal testing programs.

EPA's offices and laboratories are located throughout the U.S. Some of these
locations include:

Washington DC (headquarters)
New York City
Kansas City
San Francisco
Las Vegas

In Defense of Animals urges you to become involved in speaking out for the millions of animals burned, blinded, drugged, poisoned, addicted, starved, shocked, irradiated, driven insane, and surgically mutilated by participating in World Week for Animals in Laboratories 2002.

No matter what your focus might be this year: dog labs, primate experiments, xenotransplantation, genetic engineering, or any specific vivisection experiments, IDA will help you coordinate and publicize your events for WWAIL 2002.

Now is the time to Fight Back.
