Save the KU Leuven monkeys!
Sign the petition
On the occasion of World Experimental Animal Day, Animal Rights hands over 100.000 signatures for a ban on the use of all non-human primates in animal experiments to Ben Weyts, the Flemish minister of Animal Welfare, on Friday April 23.
Animal Rights demands the release of the monkeys locked up in animal testing laboratories of the KU Leuven. The animals are (re)used for an average of 7 to 10 years and deserve a dignified pension in a specialised wildlife sanctuary. Animal Rights demands an end to government support for all monkey testing at the animal testing laboratory of the KU Leuven.
For over 30 years now, the university has been carrying out gruesome and deadly experiments with millions of euros in taxpayer subsidies. None of these animal experiments are required by law and only serve to appease the curiosity of insensitive scientists.
THIS PETITION IS CLOSED AND HAS BEEN HANDED IN!
