90.4% of Oxford Students support animal research!!

In a referendum held on 16th November, the students of Oxford University overwhelmingly voted in favour of the following policy:

1. That animal research plays and has played a votal role in developing lifesaving drugs for diseases such as cancer, diabetes, meningitis and tuberculosis.
2. That , in situations where there are no valid alternatives, animal research is morally justified.
3. That the new animal research facility being built by Oxford University on South Parks Road should be supported.
4. That peaceful protest is a legitimate means of campaigning, that violence and intimidation are not legitimate means of campaigning.

This was a cross-campus referendum, with a ballot box in almost every college and every student of Oxford University eligible to vote.
