In 2005, the building of the Oxford animal lab (in England - Oxford uni) brought about a battle between the animal rights activits who wanted to shut the place down vs the scientists who do medical research with animals other than humans.
Scientists in the area fear to speak about their research because of violent acts from a minority of animal rights activists. Mel Broughton, leader of Speak dedicates all his time to animal rights and vows to shut that lab down. But Laurie Pycroft, the founder of a movement called Pro-Test stands up to Speak, campaigning for the medical experimentation. He was sick of the anti vivisectionists dominating the debate in the public forum.
The director of this documentary aims to hear out both sides of the debate, in order to decide if the experiments are effective and ethical.
Note: This is not completely neutral, and unfortunately makes animal rights activists look a little bad, by showing some of the bad ones. I think the docco is great though, because I agree, but I don't expect everyone else to. It shows us what goes in inside the lab, quiet fair and square. It doesn't make it look good, or bad. I'm glad to have some more videos showing that the propaganda PETA and the ALF put out is false and misleading. But experimentation isn't exactly a family fun park either.
This isn't my video (obviously, but I thought I'd point it out) and it was aired on the BBC last year, I believe. It's now considered public domain, meaning there is no copyright, and I am free to distribute it on youtube like I'm doing. Don't believe me? Visit: http://www.archive.org/details/Monkey... for the source, and creative commons license. No rights reserved ftw.
Feel free to discuss, remembering this isn't my video, though I share many of the views presented in the video. I also use animals for experiments as a student, and it's quiet possible I will use them in the future as a neuroscientist. If I pass uni and don't get attacked by animal rights extremists!
