Northern Animal Rights Believes the fight against vivisection is a key fight in the animal rights movement
We are very active within campaigns like Close Newcastle Animal Labs and other anti vivisection campaigns to promote a alternative to animal testing and show that vivisection is a danger to all

92% of drugs passed by animal tests immediately fail when first tried on humans because they’re useless, dangerous or both.
Rats are 37% effective in identifying what causes cancer to humans – less use than guessing. The experimenters said: “we would have been better off to have tossed a coin.”
Vioxx was shown to protect the heart of mice, dogs, monkeys and other lab animals. It was linked to heart attacks and strokes in up to 139,000 humans
