March on Behalf of Animals Suffering in UCLA Laboratories
(Greater Los Angeles Area, California)
Join us for the annual World Week for Animals in Labs March at UCLA, organized by Progress for Science (P4S) and People for Reason in Science and Medicine (PRISM). Activists will march through the campus of UCLA on behalf of all animals who suffer at the hands of misguided science.
Medical researchers at UCLA continue to use out-dated animal models, which yield inaccurate and misleading results, while harming animals emotionally and physically. For decades, UCLA professors have addicted monkeys and other animals to drugs while real addicts are denied treatment resources. A 2016 survey showed an astounding 73% increase in animals used in experiments in recent years!
The removal of USDA Animal Welfare Act data and inspection reports from public access by the incoming administration makes it even more difficult for independent investigators to find out what is happening at UCLA and other research institutions across the country. We demand that UCLA stop cruel, ineffective, and redundant animal research!
