PRIMATE PROTESTS - Your help is needed!
Posted 1 October 2003
Coming up are two key demonstrations opposing the proposed massive primate research centre in Cambridge. If the research lab goes ahead, thousands of monkeys will live out their lives imprisoned in tiny cages whilst undergoing barbaric 'experiments' that will not benefit human health. But with your help we can stop it happening.
On Tuesday 7 October a peaceful protest will take place to coincide with the first meeting of Regent House, the University's governing body. Regent House has the power to say no to the project even if John Prescott gives it planning permission - it is vital we show them the level of opposition to the plans!
Meet @ 2pm, outside Senate House (opposite Great St Mary's Church), central Cambridge. For further info, call Joan Court on 01223 311828.
A national demo will take place on Saturday 11 October. This is the time to come together and show the University, the government and the medical research establishment that the public does not want monkeys tortured in the name of science!
Meet @ 12pm, Parker's Piece, central Cambridge, for speakers and then a peaceful march through the town. Animal Aid will have a stall there. For further info, go to www.primateprison.org or call 0845 330 7985.
Please spare a couple of hours of your time to help save the monkeys by attending one - or both - of these events.
