Kent based Animal Aid are calling for a boycott of charities that fund medical research using animals. This is from Kent News:
The group’s director Andrew Tyler said: "Animal Aid is under no illusions as to the pro-animal research lobby’s significant financial and political clout.
"But the British public do not like the idea of animals enduring great suffering to no purpose – and our report Victims of Charity argues that this is precisely what is happening."
He called on the public to withhold fiancial support until the charities pledged to end funding of animal experiments.
And this from today's Independent:
Animal Aid plans to take out a series of newspaper adverts urging the public to stop giving money to Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation, the Alzheimer's Society and Parkinson's UK unless they end their support for animal testing.
It is morally wrong to use animals in this way and the evidence of the benefits to research are questionable. We must put pressure to stop the testing.
