"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week (WLALW) – 14 April 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

It’s high time that the growing cancer of the privileged, cruel, corrupt scam of animal-based bio-medical research that drains billions of dollars in grants from taxpayers’ money is curtailed. Once and for all this secretive experimentation must be exposed for the psychopathic criminal activity it really is.

We have witnessed unspeakable sadism in laboratories that went unreported. In the medical school research laboratory of a prestigious university, a doctor would use no anesthesia in performing his experimental surgery on his tied-down animal subject. The lab workers who witnessed such procedures were too intimidated to “make waves.” Horrific cruelty was an every-day occurrence.

In this same facility un-anaesthetized rabbits, who often suffered from untreated ear mites, were routinely held down by a lab worker while the doctor would use a needle and syringe to withdraw blood from the rabbit’s heart. Whenever a rabbit had outlived his/her usefulness, the lab worker would simply hold him/her by the hind legs, head down, and with a lead pipe, hit him/her once on the back of the head, and then toss the rabbit into a barrel. This dreary room where these atrocities were performed also housed row upon row of small metal cages where individual rabbits were housed. In the School of Public Health of the same university, dogs used in research experiments had their vocal cords destroyed to prevent barking.

That’s why we support the peaceful exposure of the truth that World Animal Liberation Week (WLALW), April 18th – 26th 2009, represents.
