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:

YOU can help these monkeys too! Here’s how:

  • Click here to print out our leaflets, and then pass them around to everyone you know.
  • Post this sign on the U.S. Army’s Facebook page.
  • Send a letter to your U.S. senators and representatives by clicking here.

Thanks for speaking up for monkeys!
