No New Animal Labs, is a campaign to stop University of Washington from building a new animal facility for animal experimentation. The University of Washington, located in Seattle, has decided to build an underground laboratory that would expand their animal testing facilities. The campaign is currently focused on pressuring Skanska, an international construction firm from building the preposed labs.
On Saturday April 25th, No New Animal Labs campaign will converge on University of Washington as well at Skanska offices all over the world to say, No to the construction of the proposed labs. Construction has yet to begin, and pressure campaigns have a proven track record of getting companies to stop doing business with controversial clients.
Check out the No New Animal Labs site for news and action alerts. If you can get to Seattle on the 25th of April, or google your local Skanska office and pay them a visit.
