activist and former prisoner

                   

"If they haven't got prisoners, we have stopped fighting. If our prisoners are forgotten about, they have beaten us."
— Keith Mann, ALF activist and former prisoner

It is crucial to not forget our fellow activists who are sitting in jail. They have made a huge, selfless sacrifice for animals and now they are paying the price for it. Show your support by writing letters, donating money to their commissary or legal defense and simply showing your support for direct action.

As Public Support for Vivisection Wains, Alliance for Progressive Science Counters Animal Abusers' Attempt at Resurgence

In January 2006, 16-year-old Laurie Pycroft formed the "Pro-Test" movement in the UK to rally public support for vivisection in the face of vocal animal rights opposition. The group's young spokesperson, Tom Holder, came to the US in 2008, funded by a vivisection industry front group, to start Speaking of Research, a "media" network that promotes animal "research." In March 2009, Dr. David Jentsch founded a Pro-Test chapter at UCLA and, with Holder's support, a new movement of aggressive vivisector- activists was born.

Deploring the research community's inadequate response to aggressive anti-vivisection campaigns, Pro-Test activists advocate fearless defense of their agenda and have initiated a new offensive in the ongoing science wars. In alliance with the Americans for Medical Progress, a vivisection industry front group, and with the aid of a million dollar bankroll, Pro-Test forces have rallied their base, organized spirited protests, spread their message through newspapers ad and billboards, and promoted disinformation generally.

While the Pro-Test movement is still small, it must not be underestimated. In the 1980s the animal rights movement thought it had shut down the fur industry, only to witness its vigorous resurgence a decade later; anti-vivisectionists must not make the same mistake and need to attack every new tactic and campaign, every novel threat. In October 2009, amidst a glaring neglect of critical attention two leading total liberation blogs, Thomas Paine's Corner (TPC) and Negotiation Is Over (NIO), joined forces with Dr. Steven Best and the North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAALPO) to create the Alliance for Progressive Science (APS).

APS was formed to attack Pro-Test on both scientific and ethical grounds. APS exposes the powerful economic interests driving the vivisection complex and 17th century research paradigms, during a 21st century era of advanced nutritional science and hundreds of sophisticated technological alternatives to nonhuman animal research and testing. Through the concept of "progress," APS emphasizes both the moral bankruptcy of vivisection and its antiquated and unscientific nature, combating the stereotype of animal rights as "anti-scientific" and "anti-progress."

APS champions a new research paradigm that is "progressive" in its embrace of animal rights and development of new technologies that promise qualitative leaps in science and medicine. APS emphasizes that the vivisection industry, not the animal rights community, is the true terrorist menace and the real obstacle to moral and technological progress, in that it clings tortures and kills up to 100 million nonhuman animals a year, it operates with fallacious research models, it prostitutes science and the public interest to profit and the capitalist interests of pharmaceutical corporations.

To maintain critical focus on the new propaganda tactics of the vivisection industry, NIO is establishing a network of bloggers committed to publishing regular articles on the Pro-Test propaganda front to advance a new model of science, medicine, and progress. We urge fellow activists to join us; to become regular readers of NIO and TPC; to follow our reporting on Pro-Test tactics and campaigns; to research, write, and publish on our pages your own essays; and to advance a new concept and practice of science and medicine that relegates vivisection to its rightful place - in the dustbin of history.

APS does not compete with, but rather compliments, existing anti-vivisection activism. APS seeks to put down the new tactical fronts and propaganda efforts designed to erase two centuries of anti-vivisection activism and to expand the vivisection industry and Big Pharma to unprecedented levels of killing, influence, and profit. Please review our upcoming website and more detailed statement of purpose in our critical manifesto for a progressive science. We look forward to your thoughts and hope we can work together to stop Pro-Test, abolish vivisection, and take the giant strides in science and medicine that the vivisection industry, universities, pharmaceutical corporations, and government so effectively blocks.

  • : Anti-vivisection campaigners are not against medicines, treatments, or cures for disease, however what we want is for products to be tested in a way that does not torture and murder innocent animals; and in a way that actually benefits human kind. We want safer, more reliable methods of testing implemented which do not harm animals or people.

free cruelty,not cruelty free!

There are things that are known and things that are unknown; in between is exploration. Someone had to pay the final price for achieving their goal. Not that she ever wanted to, nobody asked her. She was the chosen one.

She walked the streets of Moscow in beauty, with dignity, though homeless. Her ancestry was not known for certain except that she was born somewhere in that country. Her destiny was determined by the greed of mankind.

They called her Laika.

 

 

 

 

WHY DO THEY TEST?

.

We have many examples of pointless experiments carried out at HLS, but the ones we feature here are amongst the most striking. Remember every drug or product that is withdrawn because of serious side effects, every pesticide that proves to be carcinogenic, every stupid 'new and improved' household product that we don't need, Huntingdon will have forced that product down the throats of thousands of animals and then passed it safe just for it later to go on to maim, harm and kill humans...
