Sunday, May 30th was the first ever National Day of Mourning for Animals Imprisoned on Labs. Michael Budkie of SAEN – Stop Animal Exploitation Now! (saenonline.org) was in Albany the week before, so we planned our event for Sunday, May 23rd to mourn the animals killed at AMC.
Here are a few pictures from the event:

We’d like to thank everyone who came out, especially Michael who traveled from Ohio for the event!
We’ll be protesting outside AMC the fourth Sunday of every month.
Until I can figure out how to get a page set up with pictures and media from past events I’ll share them here.

Our first event was a huge success! Ten of us protested outside Albany Med on April 18th for World Week for Animals in Laboratories. We were super loud, got loads of thumbs ups and honks and even made it on two news broadcasts. I’m going to create a page for event results and pictures.
The Albany Med protest was such a success that we’ve decided to make it a monthly event. We’ll be protesting there the fourth Sunday of each month in order to keep the pressure on the vivisectors and make it known that we will not accept their excuses for unnecessary cruelty.
The events page has been updated with location details for the WWAIL demo in Albany this Sunday. The protest will be held outside Albany Medical Center/Albany Medical College on New Scotland Ave.
Events have also been added for a Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus protest at the Times Union Center and a Free Lolita and Captive Marine Mammals Awareness demo in Albany next month.
