Contact Drilltech Inc. - Subcontractors of Vivisection at UC Berkeley

Action alert - Contact for companies and individuals involved in the construction of new vivisection laboratory at UC Berkeley.
Please repost this anywhere and everywhere you see fit.

Apparently ashamed of their involvement in the construction of University of California-Berkeley's $266 million Li Ka-Shing Center for Biomedical and Health Sciences at University Avenue and Oxford Way in Berkeley, Drilltech Drilling & Shoring Inc. (www.drilltechdrilling.com) has covered up all the logos on their equipment at the site with black garbage bags.

Scheduled for completion in March 2010, the facility will include a basement level vivisection laboratory that would increase UCB's existing Northwest Animal Facility by seventy percent. 40,000 non-human animals are already held at the university and experimented on. This means that tens of thousands more animals will suffer and die in any given year at UC Berkeley. The City Council and the ASUC student senate have both passed non-binding resolutions calling for an end to non-human primate vivisection, a practice that continues at the university to this day; as well as calling on the university to decrease the number of animals experimented on.

Please contact this company and let them know how you feel about their assistance in the torture of thousands of sentient beings in the name of unethical, fraudulent science.
