World Week for Animals in Laboratories (WWAL), APRIL 22 to 28, 2007
TEAR DOWN THE WALLS OF DECEPTION!
For over 50 years, people and organizations against vivisection have been hitting their heads against the wall of vivisection ignorance and deception. In April, organizations throughout the world will speak out against vivisection and Lifeforce will introduce new campaigns. These campaigns will expose the plight of animals in vivisection labs and the misleading results that harm people. We hope to tear down the wall of vivisection deception by exposing the cruelties and the scientific fraud. Our photographs show the ongoing animal abuses. And our scientific literature proves that "animal models" do not represent human maladies and animals respond different to methodologies tested. There is a growing array of non-animal research methods rendering vivisection increasingly obsolete. The animal experiments conducted today could be eliminated with the implementation of non-animal methods without risk to human health. However, the multi-billion dollar research, drug and chemical industries are entrenched in animal research for economic, legal and political reasons. The "old school of medicine", industry lobbyists and special interests groups perpetuate the myth that animal experimentation is necessary in spite of the fact that it is futile and barbaric. There propaganda implies that people will die without animal experiments when, in fact, vivisection risk human lives and deplete scarce health funds.
Lifeforce Education Campaigns includes:
1. Three Es - Experimenting section of photographs depicting research practises that continue today.
2. Vivisection eProtest - Cards and Posters to send to Politicians who can implement legislation to phase out vivisection and Health Organizations that can stop funding vivisection.
3. Lifeforce Online Store includes Anti-Vivisection Stickers and Books/Critiques Against Vivisection.
4. Lifeforce Education
a) Vivisection in Canada
b) Animals and Painful Experiments in Canada
c) Campaign to End Pound Seizure in Canada
5. Lifeforce Links to Doctors and others supporting better, humane health care research and Health Organizations that do not fund vivisection
Lifeforce and all those oppose to vivisection have the hope of ending the misery and pain for animals in laboratories and at the same time, improving human health. Supported by thousands of animal advocates, physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and healthcare reformers, we will challenge the animal research industry's propaganda with hard facts. Science and our ethical relationship with all living creatures must progress beyond shameful and scientifically fallacious vivisection.
