Charles River Laboratories Vigil #29

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.

Hope to see you there!

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.

Charles River Lab Vigil #24

***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.

Joint Vigil! NYFAS & Brooklyn-Queens Animal Save at La Granja Live Poultry

We're going back to La Granja in Harlem and we're teaming up with Brooklyn-Queens Animal Save and Chilis on Wheels!

Please join us! The outreach in this neighborhood is really good - we always have several excellent conversations.

Reminders: This is a peaceful vigil. We believe in empathy and compassion for all living beings, including people who are not yet vegan and those who work in the live market. We are there to plant seeds and nurture the seeds we've already sown.

If we are confronted by an antagonist, remember it is best to just ignore them and walk away. Things can escalate quickly and that is something we do not want. That is not why we are there.

We have posters and brochures, you... only need to bring yourself.

Awareness is the beginning of change. What we do is plant the seeds of awareness which will bring about change.

A video on why bearing witness is important.

“Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they’re only animals.” – Theodor W. Adorno

“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him who suffers, and try to help.” – Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom

“For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.”
