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

- Worldwide Vegan Bake SaleWorldwide Vegan Bake Sale
Time: 1:00 pm
It's that time of year again. The World Wide Vegan Bake Sale is the biggest and best bake sale of the year and we are proud to be putting on our sixth WWVBS in as many years. Time flies. Come, and bring your friends to stock up on lots of vegan goodies. Sweets and savories, we will even have treats for dogs this year. Just remember to bring some kind of a box or container to haul your loot home because we will be charging for boxes this year to make the event more eco-friendly. If you would like to contribute, email Betsy Born at email@example.com to let her know what you would like to bring. Be sure to write the ingredients down somewhere so that allergy sufferers are well-informed. We also request that items be donated pre-wrapped or cut so that they are easier to divvy up. You can drop them off between 12pm-12:45pm on the day of the sale or between 12pm-6pm the day before. Bake sale will be held at Ethique Nouveau, 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at 1:00 pm
- Peaceable Kingdom II ScreeningPeaceable Kingdom II Screening
Time: 6:00 pm
Join us at Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave. S in Minneapolis at 6:00 pm for a screening of the movie Peaceable Kingdom II. Interwoven with the stories of farmers is the dramatic animal rescue work of a newly trained humane police officer whose sense of justice puts her at odds with the law she is charged to uphold. With strikingly honest interviews and rare footage demonstrating the emotional lives and intense family bonds of animals most often viewed as commodities, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farmed animals themselves.

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week Demonstration at U of M
Over 20 million animals suffer in U.S. laboratories every year. These innocent victims are subjected to addictive drugs, caustic chemicals, ionizing radiation, chemical and biological weapons, electric shock, deprivation of food and water, psychological torture, and many other horrors. World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week is the time when activists come together to make a difference for these animals.
ARC brought attention to the suffering of thousands of animals in University of Minnesota laboratories by holding a demonstration outside of Moos Tower. Participants carried signs listing the numbers of various species of animals used in one year at the U and wore masks representing each species.
Read about the U of M’s violations of federal care standards for animals in their laboratories including failing to properly administer pain-relieving medicine, failing to provide adequate veterinary care, and failing to properly euthanize animals. The improperly euthanized animals remained alive, but were discarded as if they were dead.
