From White Coat Waste Project
November 2013

Its official! The White Coat Waste Project was just honored with the 2013 Britches Award for outstanding campaign of the year by the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS)!

Britches is a baby monkey whose eyes were literally sewn shut after being ripped away from his mother at birth in a taxpayer-funded laboratory at the University of California, Riverside. A grotesque electronic sonar device was attached to his head as part of a three-year sensory-deprivation experiment involving 24 infant monkeys.

Well, the warning to taxpayer-funded vivisectors is now on: if you continue to tax us and force us to pay for your wasteful, painful, and unnecessary animal experiments, we will DE-FUND you.

Are you ready to fight with us? Visit our website to learn how!
