Animal-rights group protests Phoenix medical campus

Members of an animal-rights activist group launched their first protest on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus on Wednesday.

Leaders of Phoenix Animal Liberation Squad said the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix houses thousands of animals for medical research. Ten members of the group stood on campus with signs expressing disapproval of the school’s work.

College spokeswoman Allison Otu said the building PALS is speaking of has yet to open and she is uncertain of when it will.

The college is on the biomedical campus, 28-acres of city-owned property downtown that houses research, academic and clinical facilities.

“We’re trying to communicate that animal testing is immoral and ineffective, unsafe and unnecessary and that it’s time to move past testing on animals,” said Ioana Samartinean, spokeswoman for the group.
