Demonstration against primate research centre

The Anti Animal Testing Coalition (ADC) will hold a protest at the Biomedical Primate Research Centre (BPRC) in Rijswijk on Tuesday.


The protest is to mark the World Day for Animals in Laboratories. The Rijswijk facility houses 1500 laboratory primates.


According to ADC, 22 of the apes have been killed in the facility.


The monkeys are used for research into diseases such as arthritis. Fifty activists from ADC plan to place 100 white crosses at the facility.


On World Day for Animals in Laboratories day, all of the animals that have died in laboratories are remembered.
