Pro-Test: marching again!!

On Saturday February 9th 2008 Pro-Test are holding a rally and march in Oxford to:

* Defend - the rights of researchers to work in peace
* Celebrate - the successes of animal research in developing treatments for disease
* Communicate - a better understanding about animal research to non-scientists everywhere

There are widespread misunderstanding regarding animal research. Animal rights organisations spend considerable time and effort confusing the general public with pseudo-science and factual errors. We must all take active steps to put this right.

The rally will begin at 12 noon, Broad Street Oxford, with speeches made at Broad Street, The Biomedical Facility, and Broad Street for a second time.

We will release a full list of speakers shortly!

Come and stand up against the harassment of students and scientists in Oxford and beyond. Come and stand up for life-saving research. Come and stand up for medical progress. We hope to see you all there. We hope to see all your friends, family, fellow students and work colleagues there. Most you will likely have taken drugs which have been developed through animal research - ALL of you will have friends or family who have received treatments made possible through animal research.

Stand up for Science
Stand up for Reason
Stand up for Sense

Anyone wishing to organise a bus down to Oxford, please contact me via tom@pro-test.org.uk - we can help.

Regards

In your school, in your university, In your news

In Your School
Pro-Test members have been visiting schools to give talks and participate in debates. A recent talk at a school in St. Albans passed a 14-0 vote in favour of animal research, only one week after the class had been visited by a speaker from Europeans for Medical Progress (EMP) (arguing against animal research).
A debate between Pro-Test spokesman, Tom Holder, and EMP director, Kathy Archibald, resulted in a 24-8 victory for animal research at Brentwood School debating society.
Other recent school talks were given to schools in Hertford and London, with more planned for the future.

If you would like to see Pro-Test come to speak or debate at your school then please click here.

In Your University
Pro-Test headed up to Aberdeen University in mid-December where they debated against Alistair Currie of PETA. An enjoyable debate focusing on morality and ethics brought up many interesting questions, although there was no final vote taken.

We encourage all University students to propose animal research motions to their Unions and debating societies.

In Your News
2007 has seen greater support for animal research among the British media. Thanks largely to organisations like Coalition for Medical Progress, RDS, Science Media Centre and Pro-Test, newspaper stories covering new treatments are increasingly likely to mention some of the animal research required in its developments. Keep an eye on our science blog for updates on the latest medical breakthroughs made possible through animal research.

Pro-Test Marches Again
On February 9th Pro-Test will take to the streets of Oxford for the third time in two years. Check back for updates on times, routes and speakers.

Regards

Tom
