Please think before supporting Movember

Animal Aid is asking the public to stop and think before they support the ‘Movember’ initiative (which involves growing a moustache throughout the month of November), since some of the money raised is used to fund vivisection. As well as being cruel, animal experiments are a tragic waste of money raised in good faith, since fundamental differences between species mean that the results cannot be reliably translated to humans.

MPs supporting our CCTV in Slaughterhouses campaign

MPs from Manchester and Birmingham call for CCTV in Slaughterhouses

John Leech MP and Roger Godsiff MP have pledged their support to the campaign for mandatory CCTV inside UK slaughterhouses. The campaign was launched after a three-year investigation by Animal Aid revealed widespread breaches of welfare laws. Slaughterhouse workers were filmed: kicking, punching and beating animals; burning them with cigarettes; picking them up by their fleeces and throwing them into stunning pens; and dragging them by their ears. Animal Aid also recorded animals being improperly stunned and coming round again, and suffering painful electrocution instead of being stunned.
