STOP the Army From Poisoning Monkeys
Today, I joined PETA staffers and volunteers in speaking up for vervet monkeys outside the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in D.C. where the Association of the United States Army is holding its annual meeting. Why were we there?
Every month, the U.S. Army conducts a cruel exercise that involves injecting vervet monkeys with a drug overdose to crudely recreate the effects of a nerve-agent attack—even though human simulators are available. Monkeys used in the exercise suffer from vomiting and uncontrollable twitching and seizures, and some even stop breathing. That’s pretty effed up, right?
Be sure to read about our protest here—and check out the following pics:
