Vivisection Supplier Vandalized in Hillsboro

Vivisection Supplier Vandalized in Hillsboro
On the night of April, 27th, in commemoration of World Week for Animals in Laboratories, a visit was paid to Carter2 Systems, Inc. (2750 SE 39th
Loop, Hillsboro, OR) a manufacturer and supplier of primate cages to vivisection laboratories. Red paint was splattered across the glass door and walls of the companies sales office to symbolize the blood of the millions of nonhuman animals tortured and killed for research and cosmetic testing every year; an atrocity in which this company is directly complicit.

This act was done in solidarity with the Gateway To Hell campaign and with the 4,800+ nonhuman primates held captive at the Oregon National Primate
Research Center located just down the street from this facility. Their pain is our own.

is it too much for docs? 28.Apr.2014 16:02

Do you know how to use Google? It's not hard to find info on this company. A simple 30 second google search turned up several websites which confirm this companies involvement in supplying primate vivisection, including vivisection publications advertising their services. Your a stupid and lazy troll.

Okay asshole, here's some basics on Internet reports on operations if you don't want to be mistaken for a spastic delusional /b/tard:

It's ops responsibility to provide dox, not readers. Providing dox also shows you mean serious bizness, put some thought into what you're doing and aren't just some, um.. TROLL making up shit on the Internet.

Questions?

NVD. Carry on. This way people can tell the real activists from posers and amateurs.

Your Assertion that an Activist is a Amateur or Poser id the Exact Reasonn Advocacy Groups Fail to inspire anyone. In Fighting on "How it Should have been Done" and the Invalidation of Anyone who didn't do it "Your Way."

I described it to a Snobby Newsman once who refused to pay any Mind to a Person that would not use proper Grammar or the Writing had Spelling errors or other syntax problems.

Imagine Yourself in Central Park.

A Homeless Dude writes a near Illegible Note and Hands it to You.

The Note says, "There is a Man with a Gun/Knife and he's right behind You!"

1. Do You A. Admonish Him for his Lack of Grammar Skills, and Tell him to come back when he has Something Better?

Or? ...B. Do You Take Note of the Importance of the Message and Plan Accordingly?

This is the Greatest Failure of Alternative Culture Movements and Dissent.

Nobody know when to Shit or Get Off the Pot. Or, whether they just Speak the Truth or Apologize for how They Said It.

Take Care,

In general I agree that it is a good idea for activists to release relevant information to the public when conducting an action. I can't speak for the persons who did this action, but I don't see why it is necessary to release documents to prove something that is not even in dispute. Carter2 Systems Inc is a company that specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of primate cages to be used in laboratories. This is something the company openly advertises and can be confirmed with a simple google search. If this communique was making accusations about this company that were not easily verifiable public knowledge then maybe you would have a point, but that is simply not the case.

"NVD. Carry on. This way people can tell the real activists from posers and amateurs."

You remind me of one of those guys with a really small penis who feels the need to drive around in a gigantic pickup truck in order to compensate for their perceived anatomical inadequacies. Likewise, you go around posting comments on indymedia accusing everyone of being "fake activists" and "posers" and I have to ask myself why that is? Is it out of some weird self-guilt born from your own inadequacies as an activist? Is it penis envy? Are you hopelessly delusional? I'm genuinely curious how someone could be such a colossal douche on such a consistent scale.

They *advertise* stack cages which are obviously for lab use. No one else would keep their beloved animal like this. I have seen some of these cages billed as "infant housing." I don't think they were talking about humans or dogs--must be primates in this case. Just go to their site and take a look! Do you need documentation for something you can google? It's not exactly a secret.
