Dear NAVS friend,

As you may know from recent news reports, the Midwest has been ravaged with severe rains and flooding. The NAVS Sanctuary Fund program has been reaching out to offer financial assistance to animal shelters and rescue organizations directly affected by disasters since 1998.

Today, we need your help more than ever. Please take this opportunity to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves, and a helping hand to those who cannot stand on their own feet. Please make a monetary donation to the NAVS Sanctuary Fund.

Rest assured, 100% of your fully tax-deductible contribution will be used to help animals in desperate need.

If you know of an animal shelter or rescue organization that has been affected by destructive weather throughout the Midwest, please contact NAVS or call 1-800-888-6287.

Thank you for helping the most innocent victims of these storms.

Sincerely,

The National Anti-Vivisection Society

NAVS: Stop House from Passing Federal Animal Enterprise "Terrorist" Bill

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

Via the National Anti-Vivisection Society:

Stop House from Passing Federal Animal Enterprise “Terrorist” Bill

Bill Details

Name: Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act
Number: HR 4239
Call for Action: Write or call your U.S. Representative to vote “NO” on any version of this bill.

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act singles out animal advocates for special treatment, targeting their protests for a special classification and attempting to connect animal advocates with “terrorism.” While the bill would allegedly give law enforcement agencies “necessary” tools with which to combat a rash of attacks against research institutions and individual researchers who work with animals, the advocates targeted by this bill aren’t the extremists who participate in these illegal acts.

Instead, the vague language of the bill and the sweeping emphasis on protecting the economic interests of animal enterprises really protects some of the institutions most egregious in their abuse and exploitation of animals. “Animal enterprises” include research laboratories, farming operations, pet stores and zoos and aquariums—any place where animals are used for commercial purposes.

However, no new law is necessary to arrest, prosecute or sentence individuals who use violence to accomplish their goals, as these laws already exist, including the Animal Enterprise Protection Act of 1992 and the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act of 2002. The new legislation would increase penalties grossly out of proportion to earlier penalties and expand the scope of what constitutes “economic damage” and what is an “animal enterprise.”

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act passed the U.S. Senate in September before animal advocates had a chance to respond to a revised version of that bill. We can’t let that happen again!

The House, when it returns from its pre-election recess, may try to fast-track HR 4239, and get it passed without any hearings or debate.

Please help stop this measure NOW. Don’t let the federal government tar animal advocacy with the taint of terrorism!
