Subject: World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, April 21-29
To All Users:
World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week has begun. Please take a moment and review this important reminder for your safety and the safety of your research.
Animal Activists want to stop animal research. They will try to disrupt research using a variety of tactics designed to frighten employees, lower morale and eventually drive people out of the field. They often use tactics that involve intimidation, harassment, property damage and physical attack. They need you to react to their intimidation to be successful, therefore:
- NEVER ENGAGE AN ACTIVIST, VERBALLY OR PHYSICALLY
- DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ARGUE YOUR SIDE
- DO NOT TRY TO CONVERSE
- DO NOT GET WITHIN PHYSICAL STRIKING DISTANCE
- DO NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT
Remember, activists need you to react to their intimidation to be successful
