IDA and DxE are joining forces to stop the horrific violence against animals at UCSF!

Even third-party observers have noted the horrific abuse of animals at UCSF.

From the San Francisco Chronicle (http://www.sfgate.com/education/article/UCSF-lapses-mean-research-animals-suffer-4065881.php):

"Due to negligence or errors, laboratory mice at UCSF had toes removed without anesthesia. Several animals, including birds and a squirrel monkey, received little or no pain medication after surgical procedures. In one instance, a primate starved for weeks. In another, mice died of thirst. And for nearly two years, a rhesus monkey remained in a brain study despite chronic and painful complications."

From UCSF's own reports:

-"Due to the inability to predict death in individual animals, all animals are at risk for unrelieved distress and death."

-"The most successful... way to attain this level of motivation is through fluid and food restriction."

- Hundreds of animals vivisected in experiments "involving pain or distress" without the use of any painkillers.

-Thousands of animals killed, and hundreds of thousands held captive.

Signs, leaflets, and bullhorns will be provided, but you're welcome to bring your own.
