An injunction hearing is due to take place at the High Court in London today (Monday) to remove Camp Beagle from outside MBR Acres, in Wyton.
MBR Acres, is owned by US Multinational Marshall BioRescources and is a Beagle Breeding Facility that prepares and supplies dogs for animal testing.
Members of the Camp Beagle have been camping outside the facility for weeks.
In a Facebook video, John Curtin, who is a member and supporter of Camp Beagle is encouraging people to show their support for Camp Beagle.
Warning: In the video you can hear the cries of dogs in the background within the grounds of MBR Acres.
John says on the video: “Please come and support us outside the High Court on Monday. They are trying to crush Camp Beagle."
