Mexcians protest against experiments with animals

No experiment with animals!

This is the call highlighted by the local activists in Mexico City on the World Day for Laboratory Animals falling on April 24.

“This is an event for media coverage, where our activists take the role of rabbits as samples for toxicology test and other martyrdoms for cosmetics production, personal care and more.”

Passers-by leave their signatures or views to show their support for the demonstration.

“Here we represent the torture suffered by rabbits to draw people’s attention. … (We should know) there are alternatives, and there are affordable products that do not experiment with animals.”

It is estimated that over 100 million animals die each year of experiments and vivisection, mainly in military and cosmetics industries, as well as scientific research and education.
