Protest at the Primate Research Center - Saturday, April 26th at 12:00

From the open publishing newswire: Word Week For Animals in Laboratories Protest at The Primate Research Center Since its doors opened in 1962, the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONRPC) has funneled billions of our tax dollars into junk science and animal abuse. Countless primates and other animals have lived desolate, lonely lives within its walls, and no contributions to human health have come of it. Now ONRPC is attempting to get $200 million of Oregon's tobacco settlement money to expand its research facilities - don't let ONRPC waste another dime on "research" that doesn't help anyone but the so-called-scientists who profit from it! Meet us at the entrance to the lab at noon on Saturday- we have signs, or you can bring your own. The lab is located at 505 N.W. 185th Avenue, Beaverton, OR 97006. The Trimet goes right near the lab, but if you can't make it unless you can get a ride, please contact GaryKnudson@earthling.net and we'll try to hook you up.
