Wow. I can’t believe I just finally watched this full video, and I regret not sharing it earlier. This is shocking. Though, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised by the hatred and harassment shown by people who torture animals for a living. On January 18th, a group of animal advocates met outside the home of a vivisector to host a silent vigil in honor of the eleven monkeys currently being experimented on at UCLA. They were met by a crowd of screaming, verbally (and I would say physically) abusive antagonists.
What I find most upsetting about this confrontation (aside from seeing the obvious discomfort and grief experienced by brave, compassionate friends of mine) is that these are the people responsible for “caring” for imprisoned animals in laboratories. If this is how they treat humans (who, as you’ll see, they value infinitely above non-human animals), I can’t imagine how they treat their captive victims.

And, if you are able, please join these heroes on Feb 15 in Los Angeles as they host another vigil. Some information can be found on Facebook here
, but please email ProgressForScience@gmail.com for full details (they have added this extra security measure for the safety of their protesters).
