We discuss how the University of Washington’s research lab currently operates and why the campaign is pressuring the private construction firm, SKANSKA. “If they decide that they’re going to ignore public pressure and concern over animals, and start building the lab, we’re going to be there every step of the way, to try to make it less and less lucrative for them to continue on with construction. If they do decide to terminate the contract, it’s also not the end of the campaign.”
No New Animal Lab and Animal Voices also discuss what solidarity with workers means, other campaigns that have inspired No New Animal Lab’s tactics, how people can gather information to start their own campaigns, and how to take action in the face of a repressive state that deters people to speak up for animals.
