OHSU Primate Center Researcher, Henry Urbanski, received a visit Friday evening by animal rights protestors. They informed the neighborhood with a short speech and rousing chants that their neighbor participates in the horror that is primate testing. One demonstrator rang the doorbell to inform Urbanski of the demonstration's purpose. After Urbanski realized the demonstrator was not selling anything, he asked the demonstrator to remain, while he retrieved his camera.
Thinking the better of it, the demonstrator returned to the street, soon after to be accosted by Urbanski, who immediately became physical with protestors in an attempt to get their photos. As activists attempted to leave the area, he pushed them, and even kicked one, trying to trip her. At one point, he slugged one protestor's jaw, showing that the cold heart that uses living creatures like test tubes is just as unconcerned about injuring fellow human beings.
Bystanders phoned the police. When they arrived, the protestors attempted to press charges. Instead the police informed them that if they returned they would be charged with stalking.
Any information about stalking laws would be appreciated.
