At 10-11:30pm, Thursdays 9 and at 4am on Tues ams, on www.wyou.org on-line, live-stream (just click on the arrow on the TV set that appears on the screen) and on Cable 95 and Digital 991- watch 'Animals Have Rights'
Because of the UW-Madison's upcoming Oct 11th Animal Research Forum at the Discovery Center at 7pm, we're going to air the 4 episodes from last year's public testimonies regarding Resolution 35, an effort to examine the issue of experimentation of monkeys here in Madison.
Our community experiments on more monkeys than anywhere else in the world! Yet most of the public still remains unaware that this even happens, and funded with their own tax dollars!
The University of Wisconsin-Madison and Covance claim the use of these intelligent and innocent animals claim is necessary and beneficial and transparent yet they did not want this issue examined, and they did not want others heard, who challenge this cruel & invalid practice.
This issue was derailed by promises from the UW that they would hold public forums. For some reason they did not want a critical review of this issue in the public domain.
I hope you will watch the first part of June 29th hearing tonight.
You may watch the entire June 29th & July 8th, 2010 hearings here:
The UW-Madison's first set of forums last year:
The UW did not want a democratic discussion, instead only wanted to control the discussion.
Their very minimal publicity for their first speaker, Dr Lawrence Hansen, an Alzheimer researcher who doesn't believe in using animals in research, guaranteed a low show from the public.
And the other researchers the UW hosted did not address the ethical and scientific concerns that the public wanted addressed by Resolution 35 and by a Citizens Advisory panel.
The UW-Madison doesn't want you to know that we have more sophisticated 21st century human relevant methods available today to advance science and develop drugs without animals.
Animal research is invalid & cruel.
Why would they want this information kept from us?
The first of the UW-Madison's forums is Tues Oct 11th, 7pm at the Discovery Center.
