Exposed 2013 Newcastle University Animal Killers
Close Newcastle Animal Laboratory is a campaign that has been at the heart of exposing and highlighting Newcastle University’s horrendous animal experimentation’s.
Now with the start of the New Year the Close Newcastle Animal Laboratory campaign can reveal Newcastle University has continued to carry out disgusting unneeded animal experiments, but this year campaigners have said enough is enough!
A whole new wave of campaigners are preparing to wage war on Newcastle University because of their barbaric animal experiments that include giving mice vasectomy’s and carrying out controversial primate research.
Newcastle University is one of the last remaining primate research facilities in the UK and we continue to expose the inherent cruelties and dangers of these experiments.
In 2012 we revealed that Newcastle University has carried out 22,216 animal experiments including 57 primate experiments after obtaining large amounts of information though the Freedom of Information Act.
The Close Newcastle Animal Laboratory campaign spokesman, Mr Jonathon Proctor, states; “Vivisection is simply barbaric, cruel and unneeded. Vivisection is nearing an end and Newcastle University should be leading the way of academic excellence without cruelty, but instead it confides us to a Victorian and dangerous scientific model that is vivisection.”
Vivisection is inherently cruel and unsafe; the former scientific executive of Huntingdon Life Sciences has said that, “animal tests and human results agree 5%-25% of the time.”
If we had trusted vivisection then many modern medicines and medical practices such as anesthesia would never have been discovered. The very fact that blood transfusions were delayed by 200 years because of animal experimentation shows that vivisection and animal experimentation is unreliable and slow down progress.
Our new petition has seen a mass amount of people signing and to oppose this cruel practice. Within the first 24 hours of the petition being live we have had over 1000 signatures, with many more to come.
