Animal Defense League - San Francisco will be organizing events for the week of action against Skanska USA. Skanska USA is being targeted nationally for its decision to accept a contract to build a new, underground animal testing facility for the University of Washington.

The University of Washington (UW) has a long history of animal neglect that has resulted in the institution being cited, fined, and even placed on probation by the USDA. If the construction of this new animal research facility goes forward the numbers of animals at the mercy of the UW will increase significantly. It estimated that the number of primates used could increase by 280, the number of pigs used could double, and the number of rodents could go up by 10 - 20%. Additionally, the UW’s capacity to house animals kept in pens could double in capacity.

We have a rare opportunity to stop this lab from being constructed. Please join us as we put the pressure on Skanska to cut their contract with the University of Washington!

Where:
Skanska USA Oakland Office, 1999 Harrison St., Oakland, CA
