World Week for Animals in Laboratories (WWAIL)
April 21 - 29, 2001

Yale University is reason enough for all US citizens to be outraged over the needless cruelty being funded with our money. Mutant mice lacking a specific neurochemical receptor for nicotine are being tested to determine whether they will still become addicted to intravenous injections of nicotine. They are being tested to see what effect nicotine will have on their pain perception and anxiety. They are being tested to see whether nicotine will interfere with their addiction to cocaine, amphetamine, or alcohol.

This is what the government refers to as expenditure on health care.

Now is the time to begin considering what you will do to educate and alert the public about the plight of the animals being sacrificed at the foot of $cience in laboratories in your neighborhood and around the world.

Now is the time to begin planning events in your area.

As you consider, plan, and act, In Defense of Animals (IDA) will be there to help you. IDA can help you promote your events and actions by:

1. Preparing fact sheets to hand out at your events. If you have a university in your area it is very likely that animals are under attack in those labs. We can help you find out what is being done to them and who is doing it. Request this service early; demand is likely to be high.

2. Promoting your events on our WWAIL website. Last year, in the build up to WWAIL, our site received nearly one million hits a month. The public, the media, other activists, and the vivisection community can learn that efforts are growing and our resolve is strengthening.

3. Helping to place ads in campus and community newspapers. IDA will match up to $250 for placement of ads the week before your events. We can provide ready-made ads of any size. Place your organization's name next to ours and show that we stand together, unified and resolute.

4. Assisting you with news releases. IDA has worldwide faxing capability and literally thousands of media contacts in our database. Request this service early to assure you are served on time.

Big business and big $cience have consumed compassion.

Fight back.
