Thu Oct 23 2008 Demo Held at Li Ka-Shing Biomedical Center Construction Site
UC Berkeley Celebrates Primate Liberation Week On October 13th, a protest held outside of UC Berkeley's new animal testing facility drew media and cops. Cops vigilantly watched although the protest was calm. The protest marked National Primate Liberation Week, which featured demonstrations and press conferences across the country. The still-under construction Li Ka-Shing Center's basement level laboratory will lead to a seventy percent expansion of the existing Northwest Animal Facility come it's completion in March 2010. The University already experiments on approximately 40,000 animals at any given time, including at least 15 primates.
