Pro-Test to March Again

Pro-Test will be holding another march on 3 June 2006 in support of the new Oxford Biomedical Research Facility and animal research.

The march will begin at 11:45 on Parks Road, between the intersections with Broad Street and South Parks Road. Speeches on Parks Road will begin at approximately Midday.

The demonstration will start on Parks Road, go down Catte Street, along High Street, up Longwall Street, along Holywell Street, into Parks Road and up into South Parks Road where there will be closing speeches.

Speakers for 3 June are still being confirmed. The last march gathered over 800 people in central Oxford, distinguished speakers included Dr. Evan Harris, Liberal Democrat science spokesman and MP for Oxford West.

Get involved: email us with any questions you have about the march (press enquiries should go here). We are happy to help coordinate transport arrangements for those travelling from outside Oxford. Contact Chris Bickerton if you would like to bring a group down from another university.

This is a major national issue: a proposed animal lab was scrapped by Cambridge University in the face of animal rights extremism, and the line must be drawn here. Medical research is under threat -- are you ready to stand up for science?
