World Week for Animals in Laboratories

World Week For Animals In Laboratories Is Here And It's Not Too Late To Act!

World Week for Animals in Laboratories (WWAIL) is here! Through Monday, activists around the world will rally their forces and speak out for the millions of animals tortured and killed each year in the name of science. In many cities there's still time to attend an upcoming demo, and there's also plenty you can do to help from the comfort of your home.

Click these links to ask the National Institutes of Health and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research to reduce the number of animals in experiments each year. Then fax your legislators and ask them to support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act - S. 810 / H.R. 1513, which would spare great apes from invasive experimentation and retire all apes in federal laboratories to sanctuaries. And if you're able to donate to help other activists stage demos, click here to Adopt an Activist.

BLM photoFederal Court Gives Green Light To Our Wild Horse Lawsuit

In a precedent-setting decision issued yesterday in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California, Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. rejected the Department of Interior's motion to dismiss our lawsuit challenging the roundup and removal of nearly 1,579 wild horses and 159 burros from the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area (HMA) in northeastern California last year.

Judge England also ruled that the plaintiffs – In Defense of Animals (IDA), ecologist Chad Hanson, Ph.D., wild horse sanctuary founder Barbara Clarke, DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary, local resident and wild horse enthusiast Linda Hay – have standing to challenge the action and that the case is not moot, despite the fact that the roundup has already taken place. In past litigation, courts have dismissed claims as moot because the roundups had already concluded, never ruling on the merits on the case.

Go vegan for the Earth!Go Green - Go Vegan For Earth Day

Earth Day is the perfect day to commit to eating ecologically. Animal agriculture contributes significantly to many of our most serious environmental problems - global warming, water over-use and pollution, massive energy consumption, deforestation, loss of biodiversity and species, as well as the deep impact of fishing on our oceans. A 2010 Report from the UN International Panel of Sustainable Resource Management strongly urges a global shift to a plant-based diet to feed a hungry world and greatly reduce environmental impacts like global warming. IDA's Hope Bohanec explores this compelling issue in an article for One Green Planet.

Producing animal products wastes enormous amounts of energy and fossil fuel, and emits greenhouse gasses. Add deforestation for cattle grazing, and you have a recipe for serious problems. Cutting back or eliminating the consumption of animal products is one of the most powerful ways you can reduce your carbon footprint, animal suffering, and the risk for chronic degenerative disease, all with a tasty plant-based diet. Educate yourself on this important issue for Earth Day by visiting IDA's Eco-Eating web pages and watching this video today.
