Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!
S. A. E. N.
"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

The Defender
Vol. 2, No. 1 - Spring/Summer 2003

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week Update Activists from coast to coast fight for animals!

This year World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week (April 19th – 27th) was a big success with activists in fourteen cities spread through ten states and the District of Columbia taking to the streets to fight for animals in laboratories. Local and national organizations joined together to target dozens of laboratories.

The University of Arizona, Arizona State University, University of California (Los Angeles & San Francisco), University of Florida, University of South Florida, Harvard, Oregon Health Sciences University, University of Pittsburgh, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Washington (Seattle) were all targeted with events from protests to tabling to news conferences. Corporate America was also targeted as activists protested Pfizer, Huntington Life Sciences, and Charles River.

At Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! (SAEN) we did everything in our power to support these important events. Our website announced all protests and tabling events to enable activists to get connected to actions in their area. SAEN also compiled a report, The Animal Experimentation Scandal (posted in the Articles and Reports section of our website at www.saenonline.org) that was made available for activists to use with media in their towns. This dramatic report uncovers the scandalous waste of $10 billion per year by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in funding wasteful and redundant animal experiments.

SAEN Executive Director, Michael A. Budkie, traveled to Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. to conduct dramatic news conferences exposing the waste of billions in tax dollars by the NIH and to speak at local protest events.

We would like to thank Lydia Nichols, Jennifer Reimenschneider, and Anne Lynch, who all made Mr. Budkie’s travels more effective by providing support and accommodations. We would not be able to continue our fight for the animals without the support of generous activists like this!
