Laurie Pycroft is the 16 year old who has publicly started a campaign of support for Oxford's new biomedical research lab. I don't know what your position is on the limited use of laboratory animals for testing. Mine is guarded but certainly those involved in such practices should not be ostracised, vilified or threatened. It has taken a 16 year old to put his head above the parapet to shock one or two others into doing so. If as many people as possible could log a few words of support that would be ace.
