Oxford Animal Lab protests

This is a video made by the animal rights group Speak. It will give you a flavour of the atmosphere in Oxford when those protests take place. The fact that there is an injunction banning large protests from certain parts of Oxford seems to be ignored by Speak. Though it has to be said the police do tend to get heavy handed during most protests that take place around the UK. There is a counter protest group called Pro-Test which was started by a 16 year old. It is time for a rational debate about medical research using animals as test subjects. I'm only for medical research using animals when the experiments can be justified using the scientific method. As for people who say we can use computers instead of animals ? Computers are as yet not advanced enough to model living organisms accurately. Though there will come a time when computers can model living organisms in real time.

Sorted it now though.

Many British animal rights activists support terrorism. I remember researchers' houses firebombed and their relatives attacked. They also "act" against companies investing in medical research. They are thugs.
