Please join us Thursday for a showing of the lab animal and activist documentary "Chattel"

Discussion afterwards with former primate researcher Matt Rossell, who exposed the conditions for the animals at OHSU's primate research center, and is one of the activists featured in the film. Matt worked at the primate center for over two years, and was one of two people charged with the responsibility for caring for the psychological well-being of more than 1,200 non-human primates. For those who don't know about it, it will be surprising to see the evidence of what cruelty is being sponsored with your tax dollars through OHSU.
The documentary focuses on several animal research labs, including OHSU's Oregon Primate Research Center and Huntingdon Life Sciences, and the campaigns and individuals who are working to shut them down. Lots of undercover lab footage, protest footage, and rare Animal Liberation Front video is included. Both In Defense of Animals (for the OHSU campaign) and SHAC (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) are featured. Have a look at SHAC's website and see for yourself what they're accomplishing--bringing one of the biggest, cruelest, and sloppiest contract animal testing laboratories to its knees!

Also included will be demonstration footage of a local protest at OHSU President Kohler's house.
