    [shac-uk] Demo to close down Highgate Rabbit Farm - Part of a Global Week of Action against Vivsection Breeders

    Operation Liberation - Saturday 26th September 2009
    Demo to close down Highgate Rabbit Farm

    Part of a Global Week of Action against Vivsection Breeders
    Monday 21st to Sunday 27th September 2009: ANIMAL BREEDER Global Week of Action!

    Operation Liberation is a UK national demonstration and is part of a Global
    Week of Action against vivisection breeders. Following the rescue of 129
    rabbits from Highgate Farm, Lincs in 2008, the farm subsequently stopped
    supplying rabbits for animal testing. However, after instruction from the
    police and pressure from the industry the farm reluctantly resumed supplying
    rabbits to laboratories, one of which is Europe's biggest and most exposed lab,
    Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).

    We plan to show that this was the wrong decision to make, with a vibrant
    demonstration directly outside the farm where the animals are imprisoned and
    waiting to die. Please keep this special day free and stand up for the animals!
    Transport will be arranged by people across the country to the farm location.
    Feel free to get in touch to book or offer places on transport or let us know
    you’re coming.

    When: 12pm, Saturday 26th September 2009
    Where: Highgate Farm, Highgate Lane, Normanby-by-Spital, Market Rasen,
    Lincolnshire, LN8 2HQ.

    The demonstration will officially start at 12pm (finishing 5pm) and be
    stationary outside the farm. Hot food and drinks will be provided by Veggies.
    Details about parking coming soon. There are no toilets near by, so be

    The demonstration has been fully organised with the co-operation of
    Lincolnshire Police.

    Highgate Rabbit Farm breed rabbits and ferrets for animal experiments. They
    were exposed in 2008 when anonymous people entered the farm to find rabbits
    living in bare metal cages suspended above thick excrement and urine. The
    rabbits were crammed into cages in a windowless shed. Their first and only
    glimpse of daylight is the short time in which they are loaded from their cages
    into a van to be shipped into animal testing laboratories.
