Portland, OR- During the week of October 16th to the 24th activists from the Portland Animal Defense League will target Oregon Health Science University and its Oregon National Primate Research Center in recognition of National Primate Liberation Week (NPLW). NPLW is an annual week of protest, education and action to end the use of primates in laboratories.

Portland Animal Defense League has long targeted OHSU for dealing in exploitation, death, and scientific fraud. For several years, ADL has engaged in a campaign of education and exposure, illuminating the public to the torture, fraudulent science and "scientists", and wasted tax dollars that characterize the Oregon National Primate Research Center. Those efforts recently culminated in a road blockade outside of the ONPRC in late June that resulted in the arrest of five activists.

Yet activists are not done. There will be a surprise action during the week. The media will be alerted. As long as there are animals imprisoned at the primate center, OHSU will have to answer to the demands for their liberation. ADL has scheduled events for National Primate Liberation Week:
