March on University of Washington

No New Animal Lab: March on the University of Washington!

When: Saturday, April 25, 2pm
Where: Meet in Red Square, University of Washington - Seattle campus
No New Animal Lab: March on the University of Washington!

The University of Washington and construction company Skanska are planning to build a new underground Animal Research and Care Facility. As they attempt to move forward with plans to bury the torture of thousands of animals underground, the No New Animal Lab campaign is organizing international opposition and calling on our movement to make sure this lab is never built. We have the power to stop this lab and save more animals from suffering and death at the UW.

On April 25th, join hundreds of people for a March on the University of Washington. Be a part of making history and showing the University of Washington that people from all over the country will converge on its campus to show opposition to animal research and dedication to stopping the new animal lab from being built.

The clock is ticking. The University of Washington and Skanska will continue to move forward with lab construction unless we stop them. The future of thousands of animals depends on us. The time is now to take to the streets and stop the lab.

Be there on April 25, and help spread the word. Forward this information to others, and invite people via Facebook at  https://www.facebook.com/events/802842439807659/
