World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week 2005
World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week (WLALW) 2005
April 16th – 24th promises to be the best event we have seen in recent
years. We are currently working with activists from coast to coast to
make sure that this is the largest and most successful event to have
taken place in recent memory.
Over 20 million animals suffer and die in over 1100
U.S. labs annually. The federal government spends over $10 billion on
Millions of rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs, and
other animals die in cruel testing for consumer products. Caustic
chemicals are force fed to rats and mice. Similar substances are placed
in the eyes of defenseless rabbits and onto the exposed skin of rabbits
and guinea pigs. Many companies still utilize these barbaric tests
including: Colgate-Palmolive, Clorox, Arm & Hammer, Procter & Gamble,
Lever Bros., and many others.
Despite years of effort, many people still do not know
the truth about animal tests. They do not see the cruelty, waste, and
scientific invalidity which render vivisection useless. It is up to us
to raise the awareness of the American people. They do not understand
that billions of their tax dollars are being wasted, or that the
products they use everyday are the result of barbaric testing practices.
During WLALW activists across the nation will again
take to the streets to confront the ‘researchers’ who abuse animals, the
companies that test on animals, and the members of public who have been
misled by the vested interests involved in the scandal of animal
WLALW 2005 will mark our first effort to make this
event focus on the government agencies that fund and regulate animal
experimentation. We will work with activists across the United States to
expose the corruption of the USDA and the complicity of the NIH.
Please keep up-to-date with WLALW events in your area
as well as new materials which SAEN will make available for this event.
Our World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week website at
will have everything you need to help make this event a real
success for the animals.
