    Default Activists' pressure 'slowing animal imports' (UK)

    Great news, shows that activism can have an effect. It's a shame they seem to put a negative spin on a positive story though.

    The spin has been disgraceful, those who support animal abuse have said 'vital' work is being hampered. However, they fail to see this public pressure as an opportunity to explore useful and humane means with which to carry out tests. It's no suprise the mainstream press pushed the status-quo. They only put forward one side. Textbook.

    I've found it pretty depressing reading people's comments today. All that's happened is people have written to carriers and they have listened to their concerns and stopped transporting the animals. Free market capitalism, I think it's called. The government think it's all very well when it's all going theirway, but when it's used in a ethical way it needs to be stopped.

    This article was better than the BBC's but the comments were just as one sided. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisf...ction-campaign

    I read a few of the latter comments and edited a post. There is a sign quoting a doctor at Sachsenhausen Concentration campin Germany. This man carried out scientific experiments on human-animals. It reads, "scientific progress in the fight against illness must continue, whatever the cost."
