I want to apologize for the impersonal nature of this message. But time is of the essence.
It is very likely that you may have seen the news article below, after all it was on over 27,000 web pages today. It reveals the horrible suffering of primates within Charles River Laboratories, and other facilities.
It is very disturbing, but it is the truth. Now it is up to us to act on this unpleasant truth. Our government must know that we will not stand for this kind of torture and negligence.
It is important that you know that the negligence which took the lives of these animals at Charles River Laboratories is not unique, nor is it limited to primate facilities.
Please read these articles on our website to learn the whole truth:
