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

The Defender
Vol. 3, No. 2 - Winter 2004-2005

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 animal experiments.

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 experimentation.

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 www.wlalw.org will have everything you need to help make this event a real success for the animals.
