WLALW 2006 – Fighting for Animals Across the U.S.

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week (WLALW) 2006 (April 23 – 30) was an extremely successful event with activists opposing animal experiments from coast to coast!

During this amazing week, protests, news conferences, and other media events occurred in 33 cities spanning 20 states and the District of Columbia. This was the largest event in opposition to animal experimentation in recent years.

WLALW 2006 events were orchestrated in Birmingham & Mobile (AL), Phoenix (AZ), Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose & San Francisco (CA), Denver (CO), Washington DC, Maitland (FL), Atlanta (GA), Honomu (HI), Baltimore (MD), Boston & Southborough (MA), St. Louis (MO), Omaha (NE), Rochester, Syracuse & New York City (NY), Raleigh/Durham (NC), Columbus (OH), Beaverton & Portland (OR), Allentown, Harrisburg & Philadelphia (PA), Nashville (TN), Austin, Dallas & Fort Worth (TX), Seattle (WA), and Madison (WI).

SAEN’s Michael Budkie led successful news conferences in Baltimore (MD) and Mobile (AL) reaching hundreds of thousands of people through news coverage on radio, television, and in newspapers. While traveling, Michael was contacted by KFWB radio, Los Angeles, for an extensive broadcast interview. Budkie also participated in protests in Atlanta and Birmingham.

During WLALW 2006 SAEN released our annual report on animal research funding: The Animal Experimentation Scandal - 2006. This vital report exposes the waste of over $12 billion in federal funding every year. This total represents a ten-year increase of 133%, with over 30,000 separate grants funding animal experimentation.

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week 2007 (April 22nd – 28th) is rapidly approaching. Please participate in events in your area, which are listed on our website: www.wlalw.org.
