UCLA Primate Freedom is one of several chapters of the Primate Freedom Project in the U.S. Our general goal is simple: an end to all primate vivisection at the UCLA campus. We have a rich history of activism in Los Angeles and we'll continue our tradition of educating the public and confronting the vivisectors wherever they go. Our efforts have already resulted in the early retirement of one primate researcher, Dario Ringach, who was conducting terribly gruesome vision experiments.

Our specific demands for UCLA are as follows:

1. UCLA will not obtain or breed any nonhuman primate for any purpose.

2. No new animal protocol involving the use of any living or dead nonhuman primate will be approved, and no existing animal protocol involving the use of any living or dead nonhuman primate will be renewed. 3. All living nonhuman primates subject to UCLA's control and discretion, but not included under a currently active protocol, will immediately be granted permanent "outgoing" status.

4. All currently approved protocols involving nonhuman primates will be postponed pending to proceed without the use of nonhuman primates. All currently assigned nonhuman primates will be immediately assigned "outgoing" status.

5. UCLA will actively search for a sanctuary for any primate with "outgoing" status as soon as "outgoing" status is granted. The animal will be humanely transported to the sanctuary as soon as the retirement agreement has been reached.

6. An animal will only be retired to a sanctuary that is accredited by The Association of Sanctuaries

Your involvement will help the monkeys inside UCLA labs. Silence signals acceptance of the status quo - our leaders and politicians don't pay attention to people on the sidelines. Get involved - email us to stay up to date about future demonstrations. Emails us at info [at] primatefreedom.com and be sure to mention UCLA in the subject line.
