Supporters of the New Zealand Anti-Vivisection Society (NZAVS) march on Parliament in 1989 to mark the World Day for Laboratory Animals, 27 April. Leading the march is Bette Overell, who set up the society in 1978. The NZAVS campaigned against vivisection on the grounds that it was scientifically unsound, and during the 1980s and early 1990s members marched on Parliament each year.
