Today a number of animal abusers and their financial associates were visited by animal activists that are fed up with the complacency of those involved with the National Primate Research Center and Huntingdon Life Sciences.
The following people were visited and received noisy demonstrations:
Jeffrey Jensen (vivisector researching chemical sterilization by forcibly sterilizing primates) at 1220 Westwood Ct. Portland, OR 97239. (503) 246-8438
Jeff was on-call today, so he wasn't home, but his daughter Amelia answered with their dog. Really, Jeff, how can you justify torturing one animal and then protecting another? Would you test on your dog?
Joseph P. Gross (Wachovia Securities/JPG Wealth Management) at 2440 NW Pinnacle Dr. Portland, OR 97229 (503)-297-8311
Joeseph basically lives on a mountain that used to have beautiful forests on it, but which now was cleared to build up-scale suburban neighborhoods that rich white people can live in to avoid all the poor underlings in the city. We could see Joseph inside but he didn't want to answer the door to the dozen protesters chanting outside. His neighbors also received fliers about how his financial complicity in the torture at Huntingdon.
Mark K. Slifka (vivisector currently doing immunity experiments on elderly primates)
at 3504 NW Banff Dr. Portland, OR 97229 (503) 645-3042
Mark was busy at his daughter's dance reception we were told by the nice guy who answered the door. His neighbors, though, are very confrontational and don't seem to support the first amendment at all. They told us we should be spending our time protesting abortion, though.
Susan Smith (director of the Oregon National Primate Research Center)
at 13400 NW Germantown Rd. Portland, OR 97231 (503) 285-3728
Susan wouldn't come outside, but she was home. She lives in a very secluded upscale neighborhood that apparently has really slow police response time.
Cynthia Bethea at 10367 NW Alpenglow Way Portland, OR 97229 (503) 292-5744
(vivisector, currently working on a tissue bank collecting reproducting, brain and pituitary tissues from live and dead primates as well as forcibly giving hormones to primates to test their seratonin level and ability to handle stress). Cynthia looked particularly distraught today. We're not sure why. It's not as if this is the first time people have held legal protests outside her home. She stood at her window ranting on the phone to the police and sent her children to take pictures of the attendees. Apparently free speech is really upsetting to some people.
The demands of these activists are simple. To the vivisectors of OHSU, you must quit your jobs or be prepared to have frequent demonstrations outside of your houses. We do not want reform. We do not want more animal welfare laws that you can continue to evade. We want a permanent end to the vivisection industry and liberation for the animals that you imprison. Your career is inherently cruel as well as misleading and we will not allow you to carry on without inconvenience. Prepare to deal with this for the rest of your life or find a new career. This movement is bigger than just a few people. It will not end, it will only get stronger.
To Wachovia Securities, once again you are being urged to drop Robert Ingram of GlaxoSmithKline from your board of directors and divest your shares from GSK. You're making money off the torture and murder of animals inside of Huntingdon Life Sciences, a disgusting company whose existence cannot be justified.
