Report from July's great day of action

Last Saturday saw us come back with a bang with the latest - and long overdue - instalment of our national day of action, this time focusing on the awful goat experiments we have uncovered at Oxford University. 

If the British Heart Foundation had thought they'd seen the last of us then boy were they mistaken: we had a great response from new and established activists alike, with reports and photos still rolling in from up and down the country. Here are just some of the highlights:

• In Birmingham, animal rights activists from Birmingham Animal Action, West Mids Connection and the Animal Justice Project joined forces to create a striking protest

• In Newcastle, campaign stalwarts NAWC did a sterling job, earning bonus points for novel use of a sandwich board, and forcing a young BHF volunteer out of the shop to periodically wash the chalk off the pavement

• Brighton saw a lively demo, both inside and outside the store, drawing activists from as far away as London

Nottingham Animal Rights had a great info stall, and strung up a banner right outside the shop window

Sheffield had a well attended demo aided by their adorable dog, with plenty of street chalking

Leicester saw demos outside two different shops

• And in Wellington, Telford Vegan Action, who had made the front page of the local newspaper before they'd even started, 

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all those that got involved, in whichever way they could. Be sure to put September 16th in your diary for the next day of action and keep an eye out on our website, Facebook and Twitter for all the latest information. See you on the streets!
