Protest OHSU's Torture of Over 4000 Monkeys

Please help us demonstrate from April 23rd to 25th against the OHSU Primate Research Center in Hillsboro, where there are over 4000 monkeys being tortured with our tax dollars. It is a horrific institution including 'nicotine research' where pregnant monkeys are injected with nicotine and their unborn/newborn babies killed to have their lungs dissected. (This is funded until 2012)
