Just a reminder that it's 10 years to the day since Barry Horne (the famous animal activist) died due to the Labour Government's broken promise to have a Royal Commission and hence independent evaluation of the validity of animal testing....to mark this date there is a march around Huntingdon today and then a demo at HLS Labs, Woolley Road, Alconbury, Huntingdon PE28 4HS.
I did not post this as a meetup as I did not want to distract from the anti-deer cull march.......for those who for whatever reason might prefer to attend the Huntingdon event I post below some details, there is a coach from London leaving from Kings Cross at 9.15am but maybe some people North or North-East of London may fancy going by car or train.....the organisers ask that if people can't go, instead can they consider taking some action for animals on this day (and maybe every day if possible?).
More details at www.barryhorne.org
If people want to know when any such events are coming up please see the calendar at www.veggies.org.uk
"Reminder for the coach tomorrow, 5th November, we'll be meeting at 9am, Kings Cross,
York Way, coach leaves at 9,15am.
