OHSU Has Blood on Their Hands! Outreach for Animals in Labs
Join local activists on Friday the 13th. as we educate the public through conversation and video outreach about the horror show behind closed doors at the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) at OHSU.
This event is hosted by ARCPDX, Earthlings of Portland, and Veggies Do It Better and is part of a day of action with NARN. OHSU regularly forcefully impregnants female primates only to rip their babies away and ship them up to the WaNPRC at UW for maternal deprivation experiments and more.
Did you know that one of the largest primate facilities is hidden in the suburbs of Portland? Over 5,600 primates are currently imprisoned at the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) at OHSU. This facility’s decades-long history of incompetence and unrelenting cruelty makes it imperative that it shut down immediately and funnel the nearly $300 million they receive from the NIH into cutting-edge, non-animal experimentation that promises real results for human patients.
Tell OSHU to stop wasting our tax dollars and torturing primates including babies in their senseless experiments: bit.ly/CLOSEONPRC
Join us for our May Vegan Social following this event! We will wrap up our outreach at 7:45pm and then walk as a group a few blocks south to Fortune Bar to hang out from 8-10pm. https://www.facebook.com/events/294692736183730
