Primate Torture In Wisconsin, US, UK, China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Netherlan
by Primate Protector Sunday, Jun. 20, 2010 at 6:24 PM

Recent deaths of primates subjected to freezing, baking to death, thirst, pain of all sorts have given momentum to the movement to end laboratory research on captive victims.

Primate Torture In Wisconsin, US, UK, China, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Netherlands Etc.

Compiled from several sources

When Indira Gandhi was prime minister of India she found out that the US Navy had violated the US treaty with India that no primates would be used in military research. She banned primate export to the US. Now China and Malaysia are 2 of the largest breeders of captive primates for research. One Indian company is invested in Malaysia because of an Indian government ban.

1 Primate freezes to death at the Southwest Foundation in San Antonio Texas

2 Primates Baked Alive At Charles River Facility In Nevada
Charles River has 2 facilities there, one in Reno, one in Sparks. Neither Senator Reid nor his ludicrous
3 Squirrel Monkeys are being irradiated by NASA at McLean Hospital in Belmont Massachusetts many years after Barnes Air Force Base discontinued the barbaric practice. NASA has shot primates and other animals into space. Some have died slowly circling alone in the void. Others were blown apart with astronauts on the shuttle. Their presence had been hidden by executives at NASA Glenn.
4 Hundreds of Animals are Dismembered at a facility in Yemassee, South Carolina[
5 a. Harvard receives more animal torture money than any other university.. at least 300 million a year … primates are crucified in underground labs at Southborough and other places http://www.massanimalrights.orgMass. Animal Rights Coalition
5b. More Violations at Boston's Brigham and Women's
Ft Detrick gave Battelle of Tennessee many thousand primates, 4000 of whom
were killed in just 1 of the weaponized anthrax experiments funded by 1 billion dollars
from the CIA.
7. The San Diego Zoo used to give primates to UC Davis for torture. Public outcry stopped it. Now the torture continues. In the guise of helping after the tsunami, UC Davis vets went to India to capture more primates. Source: Henry Heymann of IPPL
8. Oxford and Cambridge are 2 schools of several in the UK which torture primates. http://www.buav.org
9. The Edinburgh Zoo breeds captive primates.
10. Columbia University’s primate cruelty.
11. The University of Oregon tortures primates.

12. KU Medical Center allowed monkeys to die of dehydration ..

13. UCLA plots to bypass law

14. Ohio State has done primate research for at least 50 years. In the 60’s primates in small cages were subjected to LSD research. Ohio State’s board of trustees, including billionaire Wechsler, has instituted a mice spine breaking class for premed students. The 1500 vegan physicians and many thousand other members of PCRM sued. The Republicans on the Ohio Supreme Court, including executioner Maureen O’Connor, voted with the animal abusers.
The 12 States with the Largest Populations of Primates within Laboratories
Major Primate Labs within the State... these are 2002 figures.. many more updated
ones are available.

Louisiana 11,673 Tulane Primate Center & New Iberia Lab
California 8,841 UC Davis Primate Center
Texas 8,307 Southwest Foundation Primate Center
Maryland 7,593 NIH Labs
New Jersey 7,572
Massachusetts 6,007 New England Primate Center
Georgia 5,227 Yerkes Primate Center
South Carolina 5,092
Virginia 4,549 LABS of Virginia
Wisconsin 4,543 Wisconsin Primate Center
Washington 4,116 Washington Primate Center
Oregon 3,335 Oregon Primate Center
Total 76,855 hacked)

The 8 regional primate centers are funded through these entities: the University of Washington, Seattle; the University of California, Davis; the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Emory University; Harvard University; the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research; Oregon Health Sciences University; and Tulane University.

26 or more corporations are licensed to import primates to the US for lab torture. It is difficult to get the list of the licensed facilities.

Yerkes in Atlanta with CDC faculty, Regional Primate Centers at Harvard University,
McLean Hospital, The University of Wisconsin, The University of Oregon etc. Covance, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia, Ohio State, University of Texas, Kent State are additional facilities torturing primates.

Dianne Feinstein, war profiteer and insider trade who illegally funded over 1 billion
in research contracts to her husband Richard Blum's URS and other corporations,
was instrumental in his being made chairman of the Board of Overseers of the University of California., where he has worked with the FBI through passage of the AETA bill
to criminalize 1st amendment protest at laboratories, slaughterhouses, factory farms etc.

Future home of
The National Primate Research Exhibition Hall
June 4, 2005, Madison, WI.

Like a Holocaust Memorial at the Gates of Auschwitz, the National Primate Research Exhibition Hall makes the clear statement that what is occurring in these labs across the country and the world is wrong and must be stopped. Sandwiched tightly between the historic and infamous Harry F. Harlow Primate Psychology building and the National Institutes of Health’s flagship vivisection lab, the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, the Exhibition Hall’s permanent presence and clear voice will be impossible to ignore.
