Our September meeting will be an exciting and important one. We’ll report on our findings about research on animals at UBC. In addition, we’ll have an update on our campaign activities. And we’ll conduct a brainstorming session about what actions we’ll be taking to alert the public about UBC’s experiments on animals.

WHAT TO BRING: Feel free to bring some vegan food and drink to share. And be sure to bring your own cup so we don’t waste paper and plastic cups. Thanks! As always, we’ll have some delicious vegan food and drinks for everyone. Please RSVP so we know how much food and beverages to bring. Thanks!

BACKGROUND: In February, a group of committed animal rights advocates gathered in Vancouver to launch a new and important effort to expose the University of British Columbia’s experiments on animals. Our campaign, “Stop UBC Animal Research,” will play a critical role in educating the public about what really happens behind the imposing walls of UBC’s research laboratories and facilities.

Most students and area residents are unaware that UBC is one of the largest bio-medical campuses in the country. The university annually distributes some 100,000 animals, both large and small, to dozens of UBC affiliated-research projects. UBC researchers in Vancouver and in other related facilities around Canada have been routinely experimenting on animals, including pigs, rats, rabbits, mice, cats, and non-human primates.

Thousands of animals endure a grim existence at UBC. You can help them by joining our campaign to stop experimentation on animals at the university. Please attend our upcoming meeting.

Stop UBC Animal Research is a community grassroots campaign that employs peaceful, legal, and compassionate approaches to educate the public about the grim realities of research on animals at the University of British Columbia and to ultimately bring about an end to research on animals at UBC.
