Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Stop UBC Animal Research Goes National

As you are aware, yesterday we released a letter to media that was signed by sixty animal advocacy organizations urging UBC to disclose information about its animal research. The letter, which Stop UBC Animal Research coordinated, has received widespread news coverage, some of which I have included below. Special thanks to Vancouver Humane Society and Animal Alliance of Canada for issuing statements about the letter and to all those organizations that signed on.

Our story has gone national.

Animal-advocacy groups call on UBC to disclose animal-research activities. ‘What have they got to hide?’ activists ask (Vancouver Sun wire story. Ran across papers in Canada)

Drop veil of secrecy, UBC. Public has right to know, activists say (The Province)
The story has also been picked up by a number of blogs. including AlbinoMouse, a blog published specifically about animal research at UBC. Very interested read. Today’s blog story: Increased scurtiny, media attention on UBC research

Also, CBC radio national (out of Toronto) just called. They will be doing a story Canada-wide.
