For anyone in BC who would like to join Stop UBC Animal Research:

Stop UBC Animal Research remains committed to exposing the grim realities of the animal experiments occurring at UBC.  We hope you will continue to show your support and compassion as the new school year gets under way.

Please join us at two important outreach opportunities in the coming week.

On Monday, September 17th, the UBC Alumni AGM is being held at the Four Seasons Hotel, 791 West Georgia Street  - we will be meeting outside at 4:15pm and holding a silent vigil for the more than 211,000 animals UBC uses each year in its laboratories.  Please wear your Stop UBC t-shirt. Signs will be provided.  We will be there as the alumni arrive and wait until they leave (by 7pm) so that they are made aware of our concerns and hopefully will feel moved to press their university turn to the many cutting-edge, scientifically viable and ethical alternatives.

On Saturday, September 22nd, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences holds an Open House at their new building at 2405 Wesbrook Mall.  We will be meeting there at 12:30 to greet the many alumni, students and community members who will be coming to tour the building and take part in opening events.  There is a large portion of the building where research on animals will be taking place.  Please wear your Stop UBC t-shirt and if anyone has an animal mask, that would be ideal as well.

Please contact me if you can come to either event.  Phone number is 604-787-7315

Hope you can join us!
