New Haven, CT?Members of the newly formed Connecticut Animal Rights Network (CARN) along with New Haven residents will hold a second protest in downtown New Haven. Activists will carry signs reading ?Yale Tortures Animals?, ?End Ivy League Animal Abuse?, and ?Shut Down Yale Animal Labs.?
Leaflets containing the the names and contact information of specific Yale faculty members who are responsible for harming and killing animals will be distributed.
When: Wednesday July 21, 5 p.m. ? 6 p.m.
Where: Corner of Chapel St. & College St.
CARN?s first protest evoked a statement from Yale University and attracted the attention of animal experimentation advocates across the country including outspoken experimenters Dario Ringach and David Jentsch of UCLA.
?Our message to Yale is that we are not going away until every cage is empty,? said Christine Koczur, founder of the Connecticut Animal Rights Network. ?Our message to those who are responsible for the suffering of animals in laboratories is that they should expect to have the atrocities they commit against animals exposed to the general public.?
Yale University currently locks away over 150,000 animals in laboratories at various locations throughout New Haven. Animals have had holes drilled into their skulls, have been subject to ?inescapable? electric shocks, have been forced to consume dangerous drugs including methamphetamines and cocaine, and are routinely killed. Animals include primates, dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, and others.
Organizers have offered to provide documentation for their claims to anyone interested: [address removed]
