On the 6th of February, activists from DC Stampede showed up a the Virginia offices of Skanska. Skanska calls themselves a "world leading project development and construction group." Skanska has a contract to build a new, $123 million "Animal Research and Care Facility," meaning a vivisection lab at University of Washington. Dogs, cats, primates, and other animals will be imprisoned there until they are tortured to death in the same of "science." Two protests were held on Feb 6: At about 9AM, nine activists got inside the building and managed to create enough disruption to close the 2nd floor of the building. Cops were stationed outside all day after that, yet activists returned in the afternoon for a round of leafleting.
