Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Update from Action for UVic Rabbits

I spent the whole day in court today defending the injunction against killing rabbits, and negotiating for the lifting of the trapping injunction with contingencies and flexibility to address unforseen future animal welfare or bureaucratic issues.

I argued in favour of allowing trapping if UVic abides by certain conditions to ensure the safe, orderly evacuation of our dear rabbits to their forever homes!

I am still without a lawyer, the judge has been patient, but I am back in court on Wednesday Aug. 25.

$800 has been pledged for a retainer so far, please keep on donating. It is important that the injunction is successful for the safety of the buns and for us to have some say in the manner of their removal.

Donate to the Social Justice Advocacy Project at TD Canada Trust branch 05680 account 84145212107

You can deposit at any TD branch or do a transfer from your financial institution.

We have a lawyer willing to work for a lower fee, but there has to be a few thousand at least for a retainer.

All best,

    Roslyn are you working with and or /representing Susan Vickery or are you bringing this action as a lay litagant on behalf of yourself ( for the rabbits) ? Are you going to get this matter ” seized” by the Judge or have you already done that? What are the
    ” grounds” that UVIC is bringing as a motion to overturn injunction? I heard it was that you have no legal standing which is a no legal grounds issue issue???? I am not a Lawyer but have had extensive experience in court in both BC Supreme and Provincial court I prepared for and conducted my own 4 day trial against a $350 an hour Lawyer and was successful ( among other stuff! Please let me know. Thanks
