Protest Animal Testers and Vivisectors

BeagleThank you everyone who participated in the STOP AALAS Protest on Sunday, November 4 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. We had an amazing turnout of about 100 people and we made the news! Kim Socha, Jenna Cameron, Ali Lillehei, and many others, thanks for helping organize.

This year, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Sciences (AALAS) is holding their annual convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center from November 4-8. This is the largest animal research organization in the country and the largest animal research convention in North America.

The peaceful protest included a post-Halloween costume component to represent the many nonhuman animals who have died in experiments: mice, pigs, primates, dogs, cats, and other animals.
