A ‘record’ breaking number of campaigners turned up to watch a ‘giant mouse’ being injected followed by a candle lit vigil in Cambridge.
The visual stunt took place at the weekend in which a giant mouse “injected” a vivisector with a giant plastic syringe. Activists wearing lab coats and lab masks held up placards, chanting and leafleting the public to raise awareness about International Animal Rights Day and AstraZeneca. A candle lit vigil followed.
