SAEN News Conference

Los Angeles

When: Thursday, October 20th at 12:00 noon.

Where: La Conte and Westwood at the UCLA campus

What: Last Chance for Animals working with SAEN and UCLA student activists will be staging a news conference at UCLA followed by a protest of the UCLA primate research facilities. The time is NOW to send a clear message to abusers of primates that their practices will not be tolerated.

The population of primates in laboratories and dealers is increasing, having reached an all-time high of 120,000. This means that 120,000 individuals will be imprisoned and burnt, crushed, sliced, electrocuted, poisoned with toxic chemicals, and psychologically tormented in the name of scientific curiosity this year. As with all non-human animal experimentation, experimentation on primates has only taught humans that animal research is inherently unethical, inevitably wasteful, and wholly unreliable.

Funding for primate experimentation is at an all time high, with federal spending on primate experimentation at $1.6 billion. This is a complete waste of taxpayer dollars. 93% of experimentation funded by the National Institutes of Health is not even applicable to two of the most common killers of people in the U.S., Heart Disease and Cancer. Primates are subjected experiments time and time again as abusers needlessly repeat their torture. The cumulative total cost of experiments repeated on the two most commonly used primate species is $266 million per year.

Given that the primate population held prisoner by experimenters, and that federal funding of this torture are at all time high levels, a sickening trend can be seen developing. This dangerous trend issues a clear call to action for all who are opposed to unnecessary suffering.

Dear Animal Advocates, Companions, Guardians, Vigilers, Lovers and Liberators:

It's official - there will be 2 demonstrations - as part of National Primate Liberation Week - at UCSF, 513 Parnassus Avenue in San Francisco - on October 20 & 21 (Thursday & Friday), 11:30 AM to 1 PM both days.

Currently UCSF has about two hundred nonhuman primates behind its walls - including rhesus monkeys, marmosets, owl monkeys, and perhaps others (we don't have a full accounting of all species of monkeys currently incarcerated at UCSF). On any given weekday you may see (if UCSF allowed public access to its labs) from 25 to 40 monkeys in various restraint devices, called "primate chairs" by researchers. The experiments that call for restraint of monkeys often involve food or fluid restriction. This type of so-called medical research is most certainly cruel and unethical and thus calls for our protest. As Lawrence A. Hansen, M.D., stated three years ago before the Public Works and Public Protection Committee of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, "I doubt that most San Franciscans would want to watch these monkeys with their electrode-implanted brains and bolted heads performing their eye movements in exchange for water. Most San Franciscans would feel sorry for the monkeys."

There will be other things you can do besides demonstrate in case you can't make it to demo's - like writing letter(s) - more info regarding to whom/what to write will follow in later e-mail.

 

IMPORTANT PS: Recently it was suggested by Valerie Tulier, w/ state Senator Carole Migden's office, that we should network with other movements/org's. I was thinking, since next week is National Primate Liberation Week (NPLW), we should hook up with activists in the prison reform movement - maybe we could extend NPLW and join others in the next upcoming demo re prisons for human primates. Or maybe we could take action in support of the release of Leonard Peltier, an American Indian, wrongfully incarcerated in federal prison (check out www.leonardpeltier.org/  for too many years. Anybody interested???
