"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

This is so bloody cruel:

Footage shot at Elmkirk Ltd (Cheale Meats) slaughterhouse (5 min version) from Animal Aid on Vimeo.

DEFRA: No prosecutions because video obtained by trespass
It revoked the licence of one slaughterman identified in the footage, while another slaughterman’s provisional licence had already expired and has not been renewed.

The organisation has also increased monitoring at the plant to avoid any repeat.

UPDATE: Emails to defra.helpline@defra.gsi.gov.uk or tel. 08459 33 55 77.  I copied my email to caroline@caroline.spelman.com

There's also an article in the DM about the rise in animal testing on household products and toiletries HERE.  It seems the EU has a hand in it via 'REACH' - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances.  With them also tightening licensing for herbal products and giving the go-ahead for GMO crops they're really restricting our freedom of choice.  B@st@rds.
In addition, scientists are being gagged by their employers, who don’t want to be seen to be complaining about REACH in case it makes them look unwilling to do their bit for the environment.

REACH was launched in 2007 and required companies to produce dossiers on all the chemicals in the products that they manufactured, including evidence of their safety — no matter how long they had been in production. The more of the chemical they produced, the more detailed the evidence required.
