Animal LIberation Front


┬áThis news article is pretty determinedly siding on the side of vivisectors. But it is important to pay attention when issues like this come up. It seems this is a free speech issue, because the UCLA is suing the above ground and completely legal Primate Freedom Project. Saying they are suing the Animal Liberation Front is like suing Santa Claus. And to sue someone for putting information on a website is pretty dangerous. We’ve seen this before with the SHAC 7 case. These folks could probably use some solidarity support right now- whether that be financial to help them lawyer up, or just letting them know you are supporting them.
