Animal Equality publishes unpublished images of animal experiments in Spain

Researchers of the organization have obtained images of the practices carried out with mice in the Faculty of Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid and of practices carried out in the animal facility of the Hospital Gregorio Marañón to obtain the B card for the use of animals in research.

The video also includes images of the research presented by the organization at the Camarles macaque farm for experimentation in Tarragona and the rescue of 36 beagles carried out by Animal Equality supporters in a hatchery located in Sant Feliu de Codines in Barcelona.

With the publication of the video, they intend to generate debate on animal experimentation and highlight the little information available to the public on this issue.

"The great paradox of animal experimentation is that they experiment with them arguing that they are like us and that the results can be extrapolated, and at the same time they defend causing them suffering and killing them, arguing that they are different from us, that they do not deserve the same consideration as us.. " stated Javier Moreno, co-founder of Animal Equality.

For Amanda Romero, coordinator of Animal Equality in Spain, “There is a need for investment in the development of non-animal methods, and more and more voices, also within the scientific community, are calling for it”.

Every year 11 and a half million animals are used in experiments in the European Union. [1] In Spain, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment, this figure is one and a half million. [2]

Next month at the European Parliament in Brussels, the Public Hearing of the European Citizen Initiative “Stop Vivisection” will be held in which Animal Equality actively participated together with other organizations throughout Europe to obtain more than one million signatures calling for the repeal of the current Directive 2010/63 / EU and that could spell the end of animal experimentation in Europe.

The date of April 24 was established in 1979 by the National Antivivisection Society of England in commemoration of the birthday of its founder Lord Lodwing.
