Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!
S. A. E. N.
"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

The Defender
Vol. 1, No. 2 - Fall/Winter 2002


AR2002 & AR2003 Conferences

              Last June 28th – July 3rd over 1000 activists from across the United States and abroad gathered in Washington, D.C. for the national animal rights conference, AR2002.  Vital campaigns, crucial issues, and specialized training were the subjects of many valuable workshops.

                SAEN staffers, Michael & Karen Budkie, represented Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! at the national conference.  The conference provided a wonderful opportunity for networking with activists across the U.S.  Local conference participants from Michigan, Florida, and many other states learned about SAEN campaigns and became involved in subsequent SAEN events like National Primate Liberation Week.  


                Michael Budkie co-presented four separate workshops:  Researching on the Internet  (teaching activists how to utilize internet resources for various kinds of investigations), Research Campaigns I (presenting information on the Procter & Gamble Boycott, World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, etc.), Abusing Our Cousins (exposed the various abuses perpetrated on non-human primates), and Running Effective Events (exploring organizing events from media to objectives).


SAEN’s literature table was overflowing with informative fact sheets and photos about animal experimentation.  Hundreds of conference participants stopped by to learn about SAEN campaigns and the plight of animals in laboratories.


We strongly urge you to be a part of next year’s conferences which will be held in two locations.  The first one will be held in Washington D.C. from June 27th - July 1st.  A second national conference will be held in Los Angeles from August 1st - 5th.  SAEN again will be participating in both conferences to help educate and instruct activists from all parts of the world about animal experimentation and how to fight it.  More information on the conference can be obtained from the conference website: www.animalrights2003.org
