SAENís Los Angeles Chapter coordinated events targeting both UCLA and
the California Institute of Technology, and StopCalVivisection held a
protest at the University of California, Berkeley. The Northwest Animal
Rights Network held a protest at the University of Washington, Seattle.
On the east coast, the Massachusetts Animal Rights Coalition (MARC) held
a major protest at Harvard Square to oppose the continuing abuse of
non-human primates at the New England Primate Research Center which is
run by the Harvard Medical School. This facility performs numerous
terrible primate experiments including one which studies self-injurious
behavior in dozens of macaque monkeys.
In the Midwest, the Michigan Animal Rights Society coordinated a protest
at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor while the Kalamazoo Animal
Liberation League protested at the MPI lab in Mattawan.
Additional events were held in Reno (NV), Philadelphia (PA), Hanover

SAEN would like to thank all of the wonderful local organizations and
activists that made National Primate Liberation Week 2008 such a
smashing success and look forward to continued cooperation as we work
for a day when events like NPLW will no longer be necessary.
