Saving Sweet Beagles from torture in the UK

Will Young handcuffs himself to Cambridgeshire dog-breeding centre
- BBC News

Singer Will Young handcuffed himself to the front gates of a facility that breeds dogs for laboratory research.

He joined animal rights protesters from "Camp Beagle" campaigning for the closure of MBR Acres in Wyton, near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

The 42-year-old said: "People are unaware there is still animal testing in this country and it is not needed."



Let's keep signing petitions & boycotting companies & corporations.

This torture is a crime imo.

Good for 60 Minutes for exposing the truth.

(And where's that certain DUer who comes along to tell me 60 Mins is crap, as if he'd know. Sorry.)

Wow! Thank you!

That was very enlightening...and appreciated. I do indeed see your points here....and you are right, I haven't read that much about them and I admit to a bit of prejudice about *any* institution called royal.

I lived in England over 2yrs, in '89-'90 and '91-'92 and had the occasion to listen to an after HighTable discussion on the royals from someone who had a casual association with one of them. I'll just say that it didn't enhance my opinion of them.

Btw, that's a most impressive first post! Welcome, LittleStar!

Another K & R

For painful truths most won't listen to.

85% of all human-produced carbon dioxide emissions come from the burning of fossil fuels like coal, natural gas and oil, including gasoline. The remainder results from the clearing of forests and other land use, as well as some industrial processes.."
- NASA, 01/13/09

Each child born in the United States will add about 9,441 metric tons of carbon dioxide to the carbon legacy of an average parent. The study concludes,

“Clearly, the potential savings from reduced reproduction are huge compared to the savings that can be achieved by changes in lifestyle.”
