PROTEST: END FORCED ANIMAL DRUG ADDICTION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA For World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, the Animal Rights Coalition No Pain In My Name campaign will focus on the University of Minnesota, where for the past 30 years, Dr. Marilyn Carroll has been forcibly addicting primates, rats, and mice to nicotine, alcohol, and street drugs to induce cravings and observe their painful withdrawal, all on the taxpayer dime. To date, she has NOTHING to show for her years of research except a body count of abused animals. LOCATION AND TIME: Moos Tower (off Washington Ave. Mall near the intersection at Harvard St. S.E.) from 3:30-5:00 pm We are asking that attendees make one sign each specific to the campaign. Possible sign text includes the following: -No Monkey Junkies -Forced Drug Withdrawal Is the Worst of All -Primates, Rats, and Mice: Caged and Addicted with No Choice -Taxes for Torture or Treatment -A Quarter Century + Tortured Animals + Millions of Dollars + Marilyn Carroll = No Results -I Am an Addict, and I Don’t Want Your Help, Marilyn Carroll -I Recovered from Addiction without Marilyn Carroll’s Help at 3:30 pm

End the Elephant Rides at the Renaissance Festival
Thanks to everyone who joined us in standing up for elephants at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival on Saturday, August 24. We passed out tons of fliers, educated attendees about why elephant rides are no fun for the elephants, and got lots of supportive honks from passing motorists who saw our signs.
ARC has learned from Animal Defenders International that the supplier for the elephant rides is Trunks & Humps. During one of the most disturbing video clips in “No Fun for Elephants,” handler Mike Swain beats an elephant named Krissy, viciously drags her to the ground with a hook, and then kicks her in the face. Krissy is “owned” by Trunks & Humps, run by Bill Swain, Mike Swain’s father.
The Bristol Renaissance Fair in Wisconsin chose not to have elephant rides this year. Let’s get Minnesota to follow suit. Please send a polite message to the Ren Fest asking them to make it their policy not to have performing elephants.
