Earlier today, Chancellor Robert Birgeneau issued a statement condemning the terrorist activities of several animal rights activists. Last weekend, terrorists firebombed a house and car of a UC Santa Cruz scientist who uses animals in his research, injuring him.

In the message, the chancellor urges reasonable people to support the passage of a state assembly bill that would make it easier to fight terrorism aimed at scientists with histories of animal research.

We, too, hope those that aren’t poisoned with murderous ideologies will support rational discourse and condemn violent, regressive acts with the utmost vigor.
