PROTEST: END FORCED ANIMAL DRUG ADDICTION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA For World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week, the Animal Rights Coalition No Pain In My Name campaign will focus on the University of Minnesota, where for the past 30 years, Dr. Marilyn Carroll has been forcibly addicting primates, rats, and mice to nicotine, alcohol, and street drugs to induce cravings and observe their painful withdrawal, all on the taxpayer dime. To date, she has NOTHING to show for her years of research except a body count of abused animals. LOCATION AND TIME: Moos Tower (off Washington Ave. Mall near the intersection at Harvard St. S.E.) from 3:30-5:00 pm We are asking that attendees make one sign each specific to the campaign. Possible sign text includes the following: -No Monkey Junkies -Forced Drug Withdrawal Is the Worst of All -Primates, Rats, and Mice: Caged and Addicted with No Choice -Taxes for Torture or Treatment -A Quarter Century + Tortured Animals + Millions of Dollars + Marilyn Carroll = No Results -I Am an Addict, and I Don’t Want Your Help, Marilyn Carroll -I Recovered from Addiction without Marilyn Carroll’s Help at 3:30 pm

Their Lives – Your Lunch Hour
WuXi AppTec has the dubious distinction of being considered the number one “Most Painful” research lab in the country in terms of the percentage of animals who are tested on at this facility without pain relief. The Mendota Heights location’s 2011 USDA Annual Report showed that the company tested on 5,290 rabbits and 23,778 guinea pigs. 20,769 of the guinea pigs and 7 of the rabbits were subjected to testing involving “accompanying pain or distress to the animals” without being given an appropriate anesthetic, pain reliever, or tranquilizer. In just one example, a rabbit was placed in a “rabbit stock” and a rectal probe was inserted into the rabbit, who was then injected with a test material to which the rabbit had a “severe reaction.” The rabbit was found dead the following morning, having experienced a “significant electrolyte imbalance” due to a “sample preparation error.”
With nine facilities in China and six in the U.S., this Chinese company tortures hundreds of thosands of dogs, cats, primates, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other species of animal annually.
