Ricky Gervais and Chris Packham join our Patron, Peter Egan, in signing an Open Letter with Lesley Nicol, Jill Robinson MBE, Jane Fallon, Rumer, Dr. Jane Goodall DBE, and Rick Wakeman. The letter will remain live at FLOE, to enable additional public figures to sign it.
The letter is addressed to the UK’s leading proponent of animal experiments, Prof. Colin Blakemore, calling for him to agree to debate his views in a rigorous public science hearing, overseen by independent experts from the relevant fields of science. These experts will judge claims, that results from animal experiments can predict the responses of human patients, in medical research and testing.
The Open Letter has been shared by K9 Magazine today, here is their tweet
