Primate suffering highlighted in Colombia
World Lab Animal Day, April 24th
Recognised by the United Nations and marked on every continent, World Lab Animal Day is a day on which people highlight the suffering of laboratory animals with one voice. ADI Colombia commemorated this day by distributing more than 400 leaflets, together with copies of our Save the Primates video, and talking to the public about how animal testing is unreliable, unethical, cruel and unnecessary. In addition, downtown of Bogotá, volunteers displayed pictures of animals used in experiments with messages against this practice.
