From event organizer Brian Vincent:
STOP UBC ANIMAL RESEARCH'S "UBC MONKEY DEATH ROW" DEMO
Yesterday, Stop UBC Animal Research staged a "UBC Monkey Death Row" demo at the Vancouver Art Gallery to protest UBC's brutal experiments on monkeys. The event, which included activists dressed up as monkeys in jail suits and in chains locked in a mock jail cell, as well as a crowd holding signs that read "UBC, no more monkey business" and "Dead Monkey Walking," was an outstanding success.
We received extensive media coverage. Below is a list of media that covered our event, as well as links to stories and photos.
*CKNW (doing story Sunday. Tune in after 4PM)
*Ming Pao news wire service
*Sing Pao news wire service
*BCIT evolution radio
