PROTEST against OHSU's Primate Center and its MIS-information campaign

Lets kick off the new year RIGHT!
At the Primate Center!
make sure OHSU knows that we haven't gone away
and we're never going to let up!
IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Lets kick off the new year RIGHT!
At the Primate Center!
make sure OHSU knows that we haven't gone away
and we're never going to let up!

We need to set the record straight. OHSU's calculating recent press release confused the issue about the primate center's new outdoor structures and led many local media outlets to present biased stories. Stories that made it appear as if OHSU had solved all its social housing issues for the monkeys held there. Let's bring the focus back behind the locked doors and remind the public that more than 1000 monkeys are living in isolation. And isolation in monkeys is known to cause psychosis which can lead to a myriad of abnormal behaviors including self mutilation. OHSU is throwing away tax dollars on misleading and unreliable animal studies that could be helping find cures for human disease!

We need all of you there!
Mark your calendar NOW! Bring a friend!
