International Day of Mourning for Primates Killed at UCDavis.

Over 19 Primates were recently killed at UCDavis Primate Center!

In honor of memorial day, please come and let the people of Davis know what is going on at their own campus! Thousands of Primates, mice and foxes, and dogs, and bunnies and squirrels and chickens are tortured there for no value to humans. It is all about the MONEY they get for research!! Please come out and help us let the students and people of Davis that this takes place in their own backyard. UCDavis is one of the most egregious experimenting labs in the country! We must help get the message to the people as WE are the voice for all those who cannot speak. Please, help us stop the capture of baby primates from the wild only to be imprisoned and deprived of food and water, given poisons, drugs, and electric shocks to the brain for no reason other than Job security and MONEY!

    Isn't the majority of testing for drugs done on animals? So as a vegan, is it ethical to use prescription & over the counter drugs? I was just curious what anyone thinks of this.

      It's hard to be 100% vegan. If you go to the dr or dentist or hair salon... You are using services that use products that test on animals. I wear contacts... Not vegan either :(

    There is a huge amount of testing done on poisons, smoke inhalation, eye, ear, brain and psychological torture, confinement, over heating , freezing probing, all of which cause enormous pain and suffering.

    Hi, yes, most prescriptions are tested on animals! Fortunately, if we eat a whole foods, no oil added, low fat, vegan diet, (attend our cooking classes with Emily b webber, Bethany and myself), we have less or zero need for such drugs! Good point!!
