Join the Fight Against Animal Experimentation at University of California Laboratories (Thursday, July 14th -- 10:30 am, in front of 513 Parnassus Ave, San Francisco)


University of California Laboratories routinely perform cruel experiments on primates and on many other species. Rhesus monkeys are confined to restraint chairs with electrodes inserted into their brains and restraining bars literally bolted to their skulls. Experiments such as this often lead to diseases like encephalitis, meningitis, etc. These brutal projects also deprive the primates of water for extended periods -- up to 23 hours per day for 5 days per week.
Primates imprisoned in laboratories often are driven insane by captivity engaging in self-mutilation and stereotypical behavior.
Your help is needed to bring an end to these heinous projects. These experiments and more are paid for with your tax dollars. We estimate that UC labs receive these funding amounts per year for animal experiments:

University of California, San Francisco -- $200 million
University of California, Los Angeles -- $188 million
University of California, Davis -- $148 million
