Consumers searching for environmentally safe products that are not tested on animals have a major complaint--such products are hard to find. To address that problem, Last Chance for Animals, a nonprofit activist group, and the Animals' Voice magazine are co-sponsoring a consumer trade show Sunday. The show will feature 85 booths offering personal-care and household products that are "cruelty-free," not composed of animal byproducts and are safe for the environment.

A Southern California anti-fur group is turning to the courts for permission to demonstrate at an upscale shopping mall. Last Chance for Animals, based in Los Angeles, filed court papers this week to overturn the Fashion Valley Mall's restraining order against the group's protests. The group contends that the mall's ban on protests is a violation of its 1st Amendment rights. "This isn't about fur," said Eric Mindel, the director of Last Chance for Animals.

Five of seven animal rights activists charged with misdemeanors after protesting medical experiments on cats at UCLA, chose jail time rather than probation when they were sentenced this week in the case. Seven members of the group, Last Chance for Animals, were arrested after they went to the Brain Research Institute on the UCLA campus on April 21, 1988, and photographed the cats. Their Los Angeles Municipal Court trial ended Thursday with a mistrial declared on trespassing charges.

With his unshaven, stormy face, tensed, street-smart body and motorcycle gear, Chris DeRose looked somewhat out of place in the airy room of pink tablecloths and sparkling wine glasses. Nevertheless, the founder and president of Last Chance for Animals, an animal rights organization, lowered himself into a booth at the pretty Westwood restaurant at lunchtime, and the ordeal with the menu began.

Protesters opposed to the use of animals in medical research and demonstrators defending the practice proclaimed their disparate views outside UCLA Medical Center on Monday as the antivivisectionists kicked off World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week. While the 100 or so members of the Last Chance for Animals group disagreed strongly with the about 30 proponents of animal research, confrontations were limited to a few shouted taunts.

About 50 people staged a noontime sit-in outside the office of UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young on Monday as part of a national week of protests against the use of animals in medical research. By the time the protest rally was broken up by campus police at 6:30 p.m., 22 demonstrators had been arrested. Twenty were charged with misdemeanor trespassing. Two others were charged with felony assault on a police officer. The protesters, from the Los Angeles-based group called Last Chance for Animals, occupied a cramped reception area and part of the hallway on the second floor of Murphy Hall on the Westwood campus, displaying signs bearing gruesome photos allegedly showing animals that had been mutilated during research.

The hospital is just outside the city boundary in Los Angeles; the parking lot across Beverly Boulevard is in West Hollywood.

The refrain being heard across the Van Nuys High School campus on Tuesday seemed to be "cut it out." Student animal-rights activists were demanding that the school stop using frogs, cats and grasshoppers for dissection in science classes. School officials were asking the activists to quit making an issue out of a traditional, accepted, successful teaching technique.
