NEW ENGLAND PRIMATE CENTER PROTEST
1700 SUFFERING PRIMATES NEED YOUR HELP!!!

WHEN: Saturday, April 30th, 2 PM

Contact: Stephanie 206-979-4503 act-up-to-exist@riseup.net

World Week for Animals in Laboratories is the time when all activists come together to fight for the millions of animals imprisoned in laboratories across the US. Ever year US labs torture, maim, and imprison 96,000 primates. Rhesus monkeys, baboons, marmosets, squirrel monkeys, chimpanzees, and many other species are victimized on a daily basis.

One of the ten largest primate labs in the US is the New England Primate Research Center (NEPRC) which imprisons over 1700 primates every year. Over 350 rhesus monkeys and squirrel monkeys at NEPRC have been driven insane by isolation. Others are confined to restraint chairs, subjected to addictive drugs like cocaine, and even electrically shocked.

We must stand up for these animals. They are depending on us.

Be in Southboro on Saturday, April 30th at 2PM. Without you, these innocent victims will go voiceless. YOU must be their voice!

Harvard/NERPRC is the #2 lab in the nation for animal experimentation funding receiving over $290 million per year for animal experiments. Your tax dollars are supporting animal torture. Show up in Southboro to say that enough is enough! It is time for the suffering and abuse to end!

Signs and handouts will be provided.
