Those 900 animals from vivisection.

The first 150 have already arrived.

It came even 150 in last week, the rest will arrive by the next. And ‘an army, so to paraphrase the title of a film, which is fighting against another army: that of the animal. There are monkeys, mostly ‘macaques, and are intended for vivisection in the Monza in Correzzana. Appropriate Berizzi Paul speaks of the Republic:

And ‘one of the biggest loads ever vivisection of animals imported into Italy. A immaginarsele all together it’s almost hard: macaques and in fact, coming from China via Rome-Fiumicino, are transported from the capital block one hundred and fifty at a time, stowed inside the gabions that cargo planes from Air China end up here in this hall land lying in Brianza. Not even 3 thousand inhabitants, Correzzana is known, as well as to have given birth to the singer Andy Griggs, for Harlan Laboratories, a multinational vivisection (present in four continents).

Ie, breeding animals are then sold to laboratories for research. The company has been over for years under fire by animal rights organizations. Because it offers ‘products’ to pharmaceutical companies and university laboratories:

In Italy’s practice focuses on trial for third parties and, of course, breeding for vivisection: mice, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, primates and other large mammals. He stalled for the transfer of beagle dogs (bred by the same company Green Hill) and has specialized in “production” of animals genetically modified to better use in the trial. Examples? The species ‘programmed’ to develop cancer or immune function inoculation of polio virus and monkeypox.

The Harlan, U.S., has two facilities in Italy: Lombardy addition to this there is one in Friuli, in the province of Udine. The animals come from China, and we have all the permissions. But the protests did not stop:

“This is one of the most notorious centers of experimentation in Italy – Mocavero says Paul, president of” One hundred percent animal “that since yesterday held a garrison in front of the plant Correzzana -. Vivisection on primates in Italy is very restrictive, but regulations are regularly circumvented with permission veterinary complacent. We ask the competent authorities to make checks on the regularity of such a massive importation of primates. ”

There are about 600 Italian centers linked to the vivisection of animals:

Two million and 600 thousand specimens used between 2007 and 2009 (including 618mila used for drug research). A turnover of tens of billions, behind which hides a world of situations that go well beyond the limits of decency and civility. The raid, in the autumn of 2006, the militant Animal Liberation Front in the laboratory of Harlan Correzzana, brought to light a reality until then unknown: thousands of rodents in stacks of Plexiglas cages, dozens of corpses photographed in the laboratory refrigerators , some of which are impaled with toothpicks, but especially tens of macaques kept in squalid conditions, including blood and faeces, before ending up in the chain of experimentation. The same which will start the 900 monkeys out of China.

A second case Green Hill is coming?

Additional Background | Source Ministero della Salute

In reference to the issue of entry into Italy of primates for scientific experimentation, the inspection of the inspectors sent by the Minister of Health, Professor. Renato Balduzzi, found no irregularities with respect to current standards.

On 21 February they arrived, with Air China flights from China, 104 specimens of the species Macaca fascicularis and Macaca Mulatta, China and Mauritius. The import permit has been issued by the Ministry of Health January 31, 2012, and allows entry of 900 records in batches of up to 156 persons. Upon arrival the animals were subjected to the visits required by the legislation and have been found in good health without any signs of stress due to travel. On February 22 veterinarians in the Border Inspection Post Fiumicino (RM) has carried out further investigations, given the sensitivity of import.

This morning the police have been conducting inspections of Nas at the factories of companies Harlan Laboratories of San Pietro al Natisone (UD) and Bresso (MI), Where are you breeding and use of mice and rats, and did not seem to be discovering irregularities. A similar inspection was performed in the establishment of Correzzana (MB), a provider of non-human primates, in which the recommendations are complied with ministerial authorization linked to the introduction of new animals and the management of those present, as regards the conditions sanitation life, which comply with regulations.

Please note that the import request is relative to 900 primates in a year, but their actual input is purely theoretical: in 2011 the same company, while making a request for 900 primates, it has imported 312 copies. These animals used for scientific or experimental.

Sample Letter | Vivisector

To Whom It Concerns,

Of all the inherently cruel conditions humans inflict on animals, nothing is more destructive and immoral than vivisection, unparalleled in both its cruel intent and apathetic nature. To subject animals to unnatural medical conditions and practices for the purpose of theorizing potential human treatments is not only scientifically illegitimate but it is also fundamentally inhumane.

From a pragmatic standpoint, if we could adequately determine the effects of drugs using animals in general, then, as I see it, human trials would be completely unnecessary. Therefore, if we acknowledge that data from animal testing cannot be extrapolated to humans, as demonstrated by the need for human testing trials prior to a general administration of drugs, then why are animals used at all?

Furthermore, tens of thousands of animals are deliberately denied pain relief while in obvious states of such, the theory being that introducing pain relief would compromise testing results. How can one honestly submit that introducing diseases to animals, subjecting them to pain, suffering, and agony, denying them companionship and comfort, and imprisoning them for life as done from a position of caring? These claims and similar responses are nothing but disingenuous rhetoric meant to deceive unknowing people: if vivisectors honestly cared about the well-being of animals, they would adamantly oppose vivisection.

Animal experimentation is unnecessary, unjustified, and unprincipled, its only function to financially benefit those who exploit animals.  Animals have rights to live free from pain and suffering regardless of your objections to acknowledge such, and as long as you profit off the torture of animals, complicit in their abuse and death, I will continue campaigning on their behalf.

I know your time is limited and I thank you for taking the time to read this urgent message.

To Whom It Concerns,

I am writing in support of the BUAV Cargo Cruelty campaign.

I was shocked to learn that your airline is involved in the transportation of monkeys to laboratories. It is unacceptable that these sensitive animals, ripped from their families and homes, are then subjected to the stress of being packed into small crates and shipped as cargo on your airline to end up in laboratories where they will suffer in experiments.

I urge you to join the increasing number of airlines that have made the decision to stop their involvement in this cruelty. Until you do, I will not be flying with your airline.

Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent appeal.



to those who vivisect
and to those who transport
is this the way you want yourself
to comport
being an accessory to cruelty
is beings its tool
and to be wielding the knife
you are the devil’s fool
