Animal rights activists target Oxford donors

The Guardian reports that animal "rights" activists are targeting Oxford University's donors as part of a campaign to stop the building of a new neuroscience building.
[T]hey are not going to have the money to finish building their new animal
research laboratory, let alone fill it with animals to be butchered," said
Speak, which said letters and emails should be "polite".

This story needs careful watching. If donors are harassed and threatened a la Huntingdon Life Sciences, it will represent a dangerous expansion of the terror activities of the animal rights loonies. Can the blogosphere help stop this, I wonder. Thoughts anyone?
