Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Stop UBC Mock Funeral in the News!

This weekend, Stop UBC Animal Research staged a mock funeral for the animals used in research at UBC. The action, which had stunning visuals including caskets, photos of animals in laboratories, the Grim Reaper, and campaign members dressed for a memorial service, was an outstanding success. More than two dozen Stop UBC Animal Research members participated. And the demonstration received good media coverage (See links below):

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.
