rights threat grows
MILITANT animal rights activists are now regarded by the British
government as a bigger threat to public order than the IRA, in its
current relatively peaceful mode, or any other such organisation.
There are fears in Whitehall that their sustained campaign will deter
research and investment in Britain by multinationals that have been
targeted because they test their products on animals. However, there
is a steely determination - both by government and industry - not to
let the militants win.
