For Immediate Release
Los Angeles, CA: The animal liberation group Justice Department delivered a pointed message to notorious UCLA primate vivisector Edythe London as the new year began. According to an anonymous communique received by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office, London was sent razor blades in a greeting card, coated with blood and rat poison. London has been targeted before by animal liberationists who oppose her addicting non-human primates to nicotine and methamphetamines before killing them in her laboratory; her home was flooded with a garden hose in October 2007 and an incendiary device burned on her front porch in February of last year.
The current communiqué reads:
A New Years greeting was sent to Mrs. Edythe London at xxxxx Edgeley Place in Los Angeles California. Inside a greeting card were blood and rat poisoned covered razor blades. Edythe, as long as you continue to terrorize and murder monkeys for a living, you and your entire family are in harms way. This is just the beginning. –Justice Department
In related news, London’s comrade in pain and killing, Arthur Rosenbaum, who has himself felt the wrath of animal liberationists, has ceased all experimentation on primates in an unequivocal victory for the campaign against his cruel methods of gluing metal coils onto the eyeballs of non-human primates. Although officially billed as retirement, an inside source for the Press Office states Rosenbaum made an informed choice to stop animal experimentation after repeatedly being targeted by picketers and animal liberation activists. The animals dying in his laboratory undoubtedly don’t care why he is ceasing his torturous exploits, just that he has indeed stopped his atrocities.
Vivisection, or experimentation on animals, is not only an evil that is perpetrated on millions of innocent animals, but is also scientifically fraudulent. While 20,000 children worldwide die every month from the effects of unclean water, vivisectors in University of California laboratories are wasting money addicting primates to crystal methamphetamines, gluing coils to the globes of their eyes and doing other inhumane and painful experiments on other species of animals, including cats, dogs, pigs, mice and birds. In a civilized society, and with better alternatives to animal experimentation, US academia should be on the fore-front of good, solid, non-animal-based research that could save the lives of children and adults alike. Instead, greedy “scientists” continue business as usual by mutilating non-human animals; it seems that until they begin doing ethical and scientifically-valid non-animal research, vivisectors will continue to be a target for those who are moral, courageous and heroic.
Despite increased civil and criminal harassment by UCLA henchmen upon lawful picketers, there is ample evidence to show that the increasingly effective campaign to stop primate vivisection at UCLA is continuing by both legal and illegal activities.
