Let`s rescue the 6 macaques from the lab in Torino!

 

Monkeys should not be blinded!

Our Italian partner organization LAV has launched a petition to the Italian Minister of Health Guilia Grillo.

Here is the translation of the petition text:

When they woke up, they did not understand what had happened. They only felt strong pain. When they tried to open their eyes, they realized that something terrible had happened: they could not see anymore!!

The #UniversityTurin is responsible for a new series of animal experiments on 6 macaque monkeys, in which the animals are surgically blinded, that is blinded – for studies on visual impairment in humans.

The macaques are first “trained” to be fixed in a primate chair for hours each day and to recognize images on a screen. After this phase, they are blinded. Invasive surgery on the brain is painful and should be done in the fall. The entire trial project is 5 years long. To stop that, we have to get active now!

 

We urge Minister Giulia Grillo to immediately stop the animal experimentation project “LIGHTUP – Turning the cortically blind brain to see” and to give the monkeys to rescue centers and / or animal welfare associations without delay.

Let us save the 6 macaques from these atrocities! Help us – before it’s too late!

My comment: Do you remember Britches?

Britches was born in March 1985 in the University of California, Riverside (UCR). Britches was an infant monkey that was withdrawn right after the birth of his mother.
His eyes were sewn up in an experimental laboratory.

In 1985, Britches (and 460 more animals) were freed by brave ALF activists.
Treatment of the animals in the laboratory has been described as sadistic and inhuman.

Britches stands as a symbol for the millions of animals that are still tortured to death with increasing numbers in laboratories.

He was fortunate, though he became blind, to be liberated.

Since then the eyes of monkey babies at the University of California are no longer sewn shut!

But the Labor Mafia in the University of Torino still relies on the same torture methods as the University of California although this cruel method was practiced almost 35 years ago and proved to be a failure!!

Animal experiments do not work and have no scientific value, every good and honest scientist knows it. The animal experiments are the quackery in medicine and therefore worthless.
