Pro Animal Testing Group to March in UK

The group, called Pro-Test (wow, they put a lot of thought into that name) will march in Oxford.

The pressure group Pro-Test is to march through Oxford at noon on Saturday, marking the first year of its campaign to counter intimidation of scientists who experiment on animals.

The group was set up after violent protests by animal rights extremists, notably against Oxford University and Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Its teenage founder, Laurie Pycroft, said the march aimed to defend the right of researchers to work without harassment; celebrate successes in developing treatments for disease; and improve understanding of the need for animal research.

I just thank god these huge multi-national corporations and universities that conduct tests on animals have a teenager to protect them.

Here is a link to their website.
