Washington – PETA supporters sporting monkey masks and holding indicators bearing photographs of the experimentation trade’s primate victims will collect outdoors the U.S. Division of the Inside on Friday, demanding that Secretary Deb Haaland act on the destiny of 1,000 monkeys introduced from Cambodia by Charles River Laboratories, presumably illegally, who for months have been held in authorized limbo.

When:    Friday, July 21, 12 midday

The place:    Exterior the Division of the Inside, 1849 C St. N.W. (between 18th Avenue N.W. and Virginia Avenue N.W.), Washington

Charles River couldn’t show that the long-tailed macaques, an endangered species, hadn’t been kidnapped from their forest houses as an alternative of bred in captivity, in order that they have been prevented from being offered to experimenters. They’ve since been held at Charles River amenities. PETA is looking on Haaland to launch them to a sanctuary and compel the corporate to pay for his or her lifetime care.

PETA isn’t the one one involved with the shady enterprise practices of Charles River, which faces ongoing civil and legal investigations for potential violations of monkey-importation legal guidelines. Greater than one-third of shareholders voted in favor of a proposal submitted by PETA asking Charles River to reveal the origin of all nonhuman primates imported by the corporate, a very excessive quantity for a proposal introduced by shareholder activists.

“Each day these younger monkeys stay confined, seemingly alone, in small metal cages at Charles River harms their bodily and psychological situation,” says PETA primate scientist Dr. Lisa Jones-Engel. “PETA is looking on Haaland to maneuver shortly to get these determined monkeys to a sanctuary and to finance their lifelong care.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals will not be ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
