Primate Freedom Tour


The Northwest Animal Rights Network (NARN) has offered to donate $5,000
in matching funds to the Primate Freedom Tour. This potential $10,000
donation would assure that the Tour would be able to cover basic expenses

(IDA) have made sizable contributions. Jews for Animal Rights and PeTA
have each made smaller donations.

The bulk of the funding has come from grass roots supporters and Tour

The Primate Freedom Tour will be a virtual world-wide event. Constant up-
dates, narratives and images of Tour events will be available at

The Northwest Animal Rights Network's offer of $5,000 in matching funds
