Scientists, ARAs Meet in San Diego

SAN DIEGO - Armed with some graphic pictures and a Lincoln-quoting neurological researcher, a small band of protesters stood in front of the Convention Center on Saturday trying to turn the tide in animal research while many of the 32,000 registered attendees at the Society for Neuroscience Convention streamed in to hear the actress Glenn Close talk about research and depression.

The organizer of the protest Julia MacKenzie West Coast liaison for the group Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) said their objective was to 'open a dialogue' with researchers on the use of primates in lab experimentation.

Indeed, some of the conventioneers came up and were discussing the issues with MacKenzie.
