Animal rights campaigners took to the streets of Osijek on Friday to mark World Laboratory Animals day.
The Animal Friends Croatia group marked the day with an information stall and a performance on the city's Trg slobode square at noon.
The purpose of marking this day is to draw attention to the suffering of millions of tortured and killed caged animals in laboratories across the world.
The goal is to reach the complete ending of torturing and killing of all animals for vivisection.
By giving out educative fliers with the latest 'Black and White List' that holds the list of the companies and their policies of testing or not testing on animals, Animal Friendsí activists will appeal to citizens by asking them to buy cruelty-free products.
The citizens of Osijek will also be informed of the new website of The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments www.hr.eceae.org, which is now translated into Croatian.
