Over 20,000,000 million animals suffer and die in U.S. laboratories every year.

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week (April 17th-25th, 2010) is the time when activists come together to make a difference for these animals.

This week has traditionally been a time when animal activists have organized rallies, protests, news conferences, literature tables, and other events to fight for the animals that are imprisoned in laboratories and to raise public awareness of their plight. These animals are depending on each one of us to stand up and act on their behalf.
