Animal rights crackdown:
========================
As the government unveils their answer to increasingly intimidating campaigns by animal rights activists - one protester tells us that changes in the legislation to try to protect those who work in animal testing may make things more dangerous. As protesters become increasingly desperate, he says, it may not be long before someone dies.

I've been talking to the minister responsible. Who tells me that government is committed to making sure that lawful and licensed testing is allowed to continue, free from intimidation. But says that she would prefer that we didn't have to test on animals at all.

Further Info


I've never been a great fan of animal experimentation, though I concede that some AR activists take things too far. The plan to introduce banning orders is divisive. The Government has already labeled several AR groups as terrorist organisations, and now they wish to extend this to include banning legitimate protest. Not bombs, not arson, not poo in the postbox. LEGITIMATE PROTEST.

They came for the animal rights protestors and I did not speak up because I was not an animal rights protestor.......
