Inside OHSU (coming soon!)

I just heard on OPB that PETA has managed to get someone inside the OHSU Primate Center for the past four months, and they are giving a press conference this afternoon.

This is good news. Despite tightened security and tougher requirements for employees, we will again have a glimpse at what goes on behind the locked doors in our own neighborhood.

I applaud the creativity, devotion and persistance that must have been required to make this happen.

fucking sick


More bits 13.Nov.2007 15:38

--

The bit I just heard on commercial radio news is that they are still powerhosing the cages with folks (primates) inside, and that they do not always give sufficient after-surgery care. I am thrilled that some people are courageous enough to brave the institution and the law to tell us what is going on in our name.

OPB's news item (including audio stream link) on "Oregon Considered" in the last hour, which has links (at bottom) to other media. The link to "PETA video" (at bottom) goes to PETA website, which in turn has an obscure link to its video of the OHSU issues.

Here's a direct link to the PETA video about OHSU, in case you can't dig it out of the PETA website:

OHSU can continue to run. They can continue to hide. They can continue to lie. But they will never win. We are obviously (without being obvious) everywhere.


Powerful Video 13.Nov.2007 19:48

I just watched the video. What a horror. I wonder how the researchers would like to live that way. What this lab is doing is unconscienable from start to finish. We are so fortunate to have someone who was able to go inside and show us the truth. How many times will it take before the lab comes down? This barbaric and out-dated method should have been dumped long ago. We are indeed bloody creatures to allow this to continue.

We know where you sleep at night

Maybe this would be a good time to start up the home demonstations again.These animal abusers just don't seem to get the message that we will no longer accept the torture and death of innocent animals at tax payers' expense and in the name of bogus science.
