The University of Washington still engages in the violent and needless practice of doing scientific research on animals. In fact, they recently expanded the research they do on animals despite fierce opposition and a growing consensus in the scientific community that this type of research is not necessary or helpful. The practice of testing on animals is known as vivisection and brings great and pain to animals while slowing down meaningful scientific advances for humans. The animals that are being tested on in this facility include primates, dogs, pigs, rabbits, any several other unfortunate species.
Jenny took direct action to stop this new lab, to educate the public through a selfless act of bravery and compassion. She and another activist locked themselves to an excavator, stopping work for the day, to show the university that animal abuse will not be allowed!
Jenny is now facing legal fees totaling $13,500. As an animal rights movement we need to stand by our courageous brothers and sisters that take bold action to educate the public and put themselves at risk to stop injustice. Non-violent direct action has a long and renowned history of success. It has been used to gain the vote for women, save ancient forests, gain people of color more rights, and address and bring improvements to many other social issues.
Will you please donate now to help Jenny and her co-defendant and show these abusive industries that the animal rights movement protects their advocates?
