Fall 2010 Updates
Yes, we’re still active! Recently, we have been waging a campaign against the University of Michigan’s Survival Flight Training course, offered by the U-M Health System. We have addressed President Coleman and the Regents, put Coleman on the spot at her State of the University Address, gotten an editorial published in the Michigan Daily opposing the use of animals in education, and staged a demo at the U-M Homecoming game pep rally.
For National Primate Liberation Week, we organized a demo near the medical campus protesting the use of primates in invasive research.
We also raised money to support the Humane Society’s Missouri campaign to improve animal welfare on puppy mills. 30% of the US’s puppy mills are in Missouri.
A PETA activist recently came to campus and staged a disruption at the 2010 Net Impact Conference at the Ross School of Business. McDonald’s VP for Corporate Social Responsibility, Bob Langert, moderated a panel discussion at the conference, which was immediately disrupted when the PETA activist approached the podium and denounced the abysmal animal welfare standards of McDonald’s suppliers, calling for a boycott of McDonald’s.
We intend to hold a bake sale next week and hold a demonstration against turkey slaughter the week of Thanksgiving. Stay tuned for more! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
