Contact: San Diego Animal Advocates (SDAA), pjr223@yahoo.com, 858-525-2988

Comments: This event is a week before World Week for Animals in Labs because the Salk Institute is having a huge fundraiser, walk, and "public education" day that includes talks from the researchers and tours of the labs. A lot of people and media will be present so it's a good time to demonstrate! We do not advocate going onto the private property of the torture facility - if you do, you do so at your own risk of any ramifications. We will demonstrate on the public sidewalks and do not plan to block any of the "walk" participants.
