Demonstration against animal testing in Paris

 Animal Rights

Last Saturday afternoon about 200 people demonstrated in Paris against animal testing in scientific research, according to AFP. On 26 April, activists gathered in Paris’ Place de la République for the abolition of animal testing in scientific research. The demonstration was organized by International Campaigns, an activist collective for animal rights.

All the participants in the demonstration were dressed in white and formed a silent and static triangle while waving boards that denounced animal research, animal testing and vivisection. The demonstration took place as an event related to the World Day of Laboratory Animals, held every year on April 24.

Activist leader Eric Moreau told French news agency AFP:

The demonstration has a double purpose. One of the goals is to denounce the fate animals have in laboratories and mainly to demand authorities to fund and develop research methods without animals. These methods already exist but they are grossly underfinanced. >:(

As citizens, we are here to show what laboratories do not want to show behind their walls. But we also know that the priority to make things develop is the massive and generalized funding of methods that do not involve animals. Animal testing is a political problem.

International Campaigns, a French activist collective for animals, was founded in 2003 and since then they have organized international and local campaigns to raise public awareness of animal rights and the sad fate of laboratory animals. Besides their demonstration against animal testing held in Paris, they have recently organized several campaigns all around France to raise awareness of a diet without animal products.

As the organization says on their website, they hope to make people think about the brutal exploitation of animals which is usually motivated by the pleasure or profit seeking of humans.
