National Primate Liberation Week

Over 70,000 primates are experimented on every year in the United States. Many of these primates experience horrible conditions, such as dying of dehydration, starvation, hypothermia, heat stress, being boiled alive in cage washers, wasting diseases, hepatitis, encephalitis, and many other severe illnesses. Many primates are confined to restraint chairs for many hours. Others suffer through the throes of withdrawal from addictive drugs. Devices are often literally bolted to the skulls of primates using steel screws. Infants are ripped away from their mothers and driven insane. This list of cruelties only scratches the surface.

October 16th through October 24th 2010 marks the National Primate Liberation Week. Events are held throughout the U.S., against primates used in laboratories.
