Your help is needed during the Week Of Action Against Secret Suffering in UK labs on November 27th – December 3rd.
The NAVS is calling on supporters to participate in two key actions which could influence the secret use of millions of animals in UK laboratories each year.
Time is of the essence so please spare just half an hour of your time to take part in these actions during our week of action, and encourage others to do the same. Spread the word for lab animals.
But more must be done to ensure that lab animals do not suffer in silence.
The Government has announced a review of Section 24 and is expected to consult the public later this year or early 2014. It is crucial that we make our voices heard so that we can win a real change for the animals. We hope you will take part in the consultation – we will let you know as soon as it has been announced.
Until then, during the Week Of Action Against Secret Suffering in UK labs please contact your MP and urge them to sign EDM 630 Open Government and Animal Experiments which calls for the repeal of Section 24.
During the Week Of Action Against Secret Suffering in UK labs please take part in the online questionnaire which is hosted by the pro-vivisection lobby group Understanding Animal Research. You need only reply to the key questions that have been identified by the NAVS – questions 4, 17, 18, 40, 41, 54, 55, 65 and 66 – using our answer guide here.
Thank you for supporting our Week Of Action Against Secret Suffering in UK labs – together we are working to end animal experiments.
