Yesterday 28th of April, a demonstration against vivisection turned into a historic event for the Animal Rights movement when dozens of activists entered inside the breeding facility of "Green Hill" in the italian village of Montichiari in Brescia and rescued 30 dogs that were going to be used in experiments.

Dozens of dogs were rescued even though the police stopped several cars, from leaving the village and captured 7 or 8 dogs.

In this moment 12 people, 8 women and 4 men are arrested in Verziano a prison in Brescia. There is still no specific information about the charges against them, but everything seems to indicate that they could be accused of trespassing, robbery and authority resistance.
