In light of the recent 18 primate deaths at Alpha Genesis in SC,
we feel it is important to inform the public of the cruelty, hidden in secrecy, at this facility.
Alpha Genesis Incorporated is a primate breeding prison in Yemassee, SC, that sells monkeys to labs for experimental testing. Alpha Genesis is paid 1.1 million dollars annually by the National Institutes of Health, to maintain these primates .... Which means YOUR tax dollars PAY for this cruelty!!
May 26th is also the International Day of Mourning for animals who live, suffer and die in labs. Many scientists now agree, that testing on animals does NOT produce results that are beneficial to humans.
Please take ACTION, and join us for a peaceful informational protest against Alpha Genesis.
This is a grassroots group for animal activists in South Carolina!
The group will encourage compassion and protection for all Earthlings regardless of species- through public education, direct action, and collaboration with other local and regional organizations.
Issues this group will work on may include: bear baying (and other animal baiting events), animal circuses and other animal "entertainment" industries, feral cats, chained dogs, puppy mills, canned hunts, carriage horses, vivisection (animal experimentation), fur farmed animals/factory farming and vegan outreach, cruelty-free living.
Activities may include: educational tabling, lobbying, peaceful demonstrations, vegan outreach events (food sampling, leafleting) pay-per-view video events, volunteer days with animal sanctuaries, documentary showings, fundraisers and joint events with other groups.
You do not need to have any experience in activism to join!
You also do not need to be vegan or vegetarian to join, but there will be much information and support available to anyone interested in transitioning to a healthier and compassionate diet through this group and our sister group, Columbia Veg.
