Animal-rights activists to target UC Riverside

From LA TimesBlogs, Saturday, July 14, 2012

Protesters plan to target UC Riverside on Saturday as part of a West Coast anti-animal research campaign dubbed the “Open the Cages Tour,” which includes demonstrations, concerts and film screenings.

The demonstration is scheduled to begin at 11:15 a.m. at the corner of University and Iowa avenues, according to the group's website - Open the Cages Tour.

“We planned this tour to not only educate people about the fraudulent scientific research and billions of taxpayer dollars that are invested in dead-end animal trials,” organizers said in a statement. "The suffering that beagle puppies, primates, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs and other animals endure in these laboratories are not only a massive waste of life but a waste of human knowledge as well."

Other cities on the tour include Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Sacramento/Davis, Reno, Portland, Ore.; Seattle, Victoria & Vancouver, Canada.

The tour is a collaborative effort among activists, filmmakers, artists and musicians. It is sponsored by Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN).
