( and San Diego Animal Advocates
( at a protest to end the use of
live animals in cruel neurological experiments.

Actress GLENN CLOSE (Fatal Attraction/Damages) is
scheduled to speak at the conference. Let Glenn know that
we want humane research for diseases. Research using live
animals is cruel, unproductive and motivated by money.

Primate vivisector, Robert H. Wurtz is speaking at the conference on brain
circuits in non-human primates. Wurtz implants eye coils in monkeys,
restrains them, cements recording cylinders to their heads with titanium
screws and uses water/food deprivation to force the monkeys to react. He
experimented on one monkey a total of 18 times before discarding 6 out of 24
experiments he did.

Scheduled speaker, J.K Rowlett, addicts squirrel and rhesus monkeys to
barbiturate drugs such as zolpidem and psychotropic drugs such as
benzodiazepene. He uses food/water deprivation and electric shocks to
monkeys’ feet to train them during experiments.
