    Activists have occupied land near the entrance of Highgate Rabbit Farm in protest against their breeding of rabbits and ferrets for the vivisection industry. They supply several university and commercial laboratories, including Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). The campers are holding a peaceful occupation of the land, calling on the closure of the farm, and for the farmer Geoffrey Douglas to hand the animals over to a suitable organisation for rehoming.

    If you can make it to the camp for any period of time, please ring the camp number: 07941184529
    The farm is located at: Highgate Farm, Highgate lane, Normanby-by-Spital, Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, LN8 2HQ

    There are several ways you can support the action:

    • You can telephone the farm on: 01673 878259 and 01673 878 232.
    • You can attend the camp to protest - whether it is for an hour, a day or a week your presence would be greatly appreciated.
    * You can write to the farm at the address above.
    * You can attend the national protest on the 26th September.

    Please keep all communications to the farm informative and polite. The purpose of your correspondence is to urge them to stop breeding animals for vivisection, and to allow the animals to be rehomed.
