Indigenous Action: Protest animal testing at NAU in Flagstaff

From: Indigenous Action

Group to Protest Animal Testing at NAU!
When: Monday, Nov. 5th at 10:30 am
Where: Biology Annex (21B) at NAU Campus

Animal Rights NOW! is holding a demonstration to protest the animal testing facility on campus. Members of ARN! have tried to contact employees of the facility, but they have ignored our requests for information and refuse to meet with us. Though NAU has said that students' tuition does not go directly to animal testing (they like to call it "using animals for research"), our dollars DO go to pay for equipment, chemicals, and the salaries of these "scientists." Yesterday, after NAU found out about the demonstration, a faculty member contacted the boss of an ARN! member and told them that this individual was a threat to the university and should be fired (they also expressed that these views are shared with president Haeger). They are upping security at the Annex and said that police will be present at the demonstration. We are asking for as many people to come out and show their support for ARN!, and to show NAU that we DEMAND answers. They refuse to meet with us or talk to us- what are they hiding?
We are meeting at 10:30; there will be a group meeting on the east side of Wall Aquatic (it is along Franklin), and another group meeting by the entrance of the Wettaw building (north campus). From there, we will head to the Biology Annex (21B). We will have banners and signs
