Charles River Lab Vigil #41

***We are asking everyone who attends our vigils to please be on alert and pay attention to what is going on around you. Please stand back from the road a little. What we do out there is peaceful and hurts no one yet it causes very angry reactions from some people. Our main concern when we are holding a vigil is that everyone is SAFE.***

Join us to hold vigil for all of the animals this evil company profits off of. They make money off of the pain and torture of innocent animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light.

Charles River Laboratories (CRL) is the world’s largest breeder of animals for use in experiments. Half of all animals used in lab experiments are supplied by CRL.

They also conduct painful tests on animals for companies that produce industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, and pharmaceuticals. In these tests, the animals are force-fed test compounds, have experimental chemicals smeared onto their shaved skin, and are forced to inhale toxic substances. The animals may endure severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, convulsions, seizures, paralysis, and bleeding from the nose, mouth, and genitals before they ultimately die or are killed.

CRL is the second-largest importer of nonhuman primates into the U.S., bringing in thousands of monkeys who have been stolen from their homes in the wild or bred on decrepit monkey factory farms.

Our goal is to raise awareness and request that they change their model to non-animal testing methods.

We will have a banner and signs - all you need to bring is yourself.

We have had two disturbing incidents at our vigils recently. The first was in November of 2018 when someone threw a dead rabbit at us as he drove by.

The second incident happened at our March 9th vigil. A pick up truck swerved towards the activists 3 times, as if he was going to hit someone. Luckily, no one was hurt but we are very concerned that another disturbed individual could cause someone harm.

We’re going to keep going back to raise awareness and plant seeds! People are still shocked when they find out what Charles River does. Their comment is always “but their sign looks so innocent!” That’s how evil is able to continue. Look innocuous and people won’t give you a second thought. We are out there to change that.

We hope you'll join us to hold vigil for all of the animals this evil company profits off of. They make money off of the pain and torture of innocent animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light.

Charles River Laboratories Vigil #27

****PLEASE READ THE PARKING INSTRUCTIONS!!!***

If you are not aware, at one of our recent vigils, some neighbors complained that our parked cars were making it dangerous for them to leave their driveways. It *IS* difficult to see the oncoming traffic when there are cars parked on the side of the road and the traffic on that stretch of road moves very fast.

We do NOT want to make our presence at CRL difficult for the neighbors so during our last vigil we tried having people park at the O&W Rail Trail parking lot. That worked OKAY but we have a BETTER solution!Through the generous offer of one of our members, we can park in the parking lot of their apartment building which is right near CRL. 

NOTE: there is room for about 5-6 cars at the CRL site but once we think it’s getting too full, we will direct cars to the parking space (we will give you a map of where to park), which is in walking distance of the CRL site.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we figure this parking situation out!

Albany Medical Center Vigil #4

Please join us for our vigil at Albany Medical Center where they test on animals at their college. They have been known to test on animals such as pigs, non-human primates, dogs, rabbits, goats and chinchillas. 

Mice, rats and birds are not protected under the Animal Welfare Act so we have no way of knowing how many were tortured and killed at this facility.

Last year, they received over $5 million from the National Institute of Health to perform tests. Not all tests used animals but many did.

We want to let the public know that there are alternative methods that do not involve using animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light. 

Our goal is to raise awareness and request that they change all of their models to non-animal testing methods.

***IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT PARKING***

At the last CRL event, we had a lot of people show up, which was AMAZING but it caused some problems for some of the neighborhood people trying to leave their driveways because of all the cars parked alongside the road.

It *is* hard to see oncoming traffic when there are cars parked next to the driveways and the traffic comes down that road *very* fast.

We've decided the safest and best thing to do is for people to park at a designated spot and have people carpool to the event site so there are a maximum of 3-4 cars parked at the Charles River site.

We realize people don't all come at the same time so you can park at this designated spot and contact us either through Facebook (Messenger) or we can give you our cell numbers so you can call or text us to let us know you are at the parking lot and someone will come and pick you up. 

The parking lot is the O&W Hurley Rail Trail parking lot, located at the intersection of Route 209 and Russell Road.

We will be there at 11:50 and wait for 5-10 minutes then make our first trip to Charles River. There will be kinks to work out but we want to be courteous to the people living in the area while planting seeds so we appreciate your patience and understanding while we work all of this out.

Please come out and join us to hold vigil for all of the animals this evil company profits off of. They make money off of the pain and torture of innocent animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light. 

Charles River Laboratories (CRL) is the world’s largest breeder of animals for use in experiments. Half of all animals used in lab experiments are supplied by CRL.

They also conduct painful tests on animals for companies that produce industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, and pharmaceuticals. In these tests, the animals are force-fed test compounds, have experimental chemicals smeared onto their shaved skin, and are forced to inhale toxic substances. The animals may endure severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, convulsions, seizures, paralysis, and bleeding from the nose, mouth, and genitals before they ultimately die or are killed.

CRL is the second-largest importer of nonhuman primates into the U.S., bringing in thousands of monkeys who have been stolen from their homes in the wild or bred on decrepit monkey factory farms.

Our goal is to raise awareness and request that they change their model to non-animal testing methods. They are usually cheaper and more effective.

We will have a banner and signs - all you need to bring is yourself.

You can park along the side of the road (be careful getting in and out of your car) or if you want to meet somewhere and carpool there, we can arrange that as well.

Hope to see you there!

Albany Medical Center Vigil #3

Albany Medical Center Vigil #3

Please join us for our vigil at Albany Medical Center where they test on animals at their college. They have been known to test on animals such as pigs, non-human primates, dogs, rabbits, goats and chinchillas. 

Mice, rats and birds are not protected under the Animal Welfare Act so we have no way of knowing how many were tortured and killed at this facility.

Last year, they received over $5 million from the National Institute of Health to perform tests. Not all tests used animals but many did.

We want to let the public know that there are alternative methods that do not involve using animals. These animals are truly the most silent victims. We are bringing awareness to the community - we are bringing the truth of what they do into the light. 

Our goal is to raise awareness and request that they change all of their models to non-animal testing methods.
