Protest at the Italian Consulate to close down Green Hill Beagle Breeding Lab in Italy
Prelude to our National Day of Mourning for Animals in Laboratories
When: Friday, May 25, 2012 @ 11:00 am ... Where: Italian Consulate Office Address: 690 Park Avenue New York, NY 10065
This protest is a follow up to the May 8th international day of action against vivisection and for the closure of beagle breeder Green Hill (owned by Marshall Bioresources Inc) when demos were held in front of Italian embassies and consulates all over the world.
The Italian government is considering legislation that would end the breeding of lab animals in their country.
**What happened on april 28th? An historic day for the animal rights movement!
During a march with more than 1,000 people, a large group of protestersclimbed over the fences and entered the compound of Green Hill, opening the sheds and freeing at least 30 dogs in an open act of liberation. The protesters' cries of happiness and applause as well as the support this action is getting on a national and international level - even in the media - is a milestone for the end of the idea that animals can be used in lab tests.
**Why it is important to continue to try to influence the Italian government through their Embassies an Consulate Offices?
The Italian Commission number 14 of the Senate will vote some amendments to the European Directive on vivisection. The vote will be mostly centered around the ban on breeding dogs, cats and primates and banning all experiments without anesthesia. The italian movement is working hard for this ban, that would mean the closure of Green Hill, Europe biggest breeder of lab beagles. Vivisectors from all over the world are lobbying the Italian Senators not to have any restriction.
Please join us as we continue to advocate for the beagles held captive in Green Hill. Until every cage is empty!
