      Join IDA Demonstration at Opening Celebration of UCSF's Mission Bay Campus

      The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) recently paid $92,500 in
      fines to avoid hearings on 89 counts of animal welfare violations the USDA
      officially lodged against them. At least three primate protocols were
      involved in the charges: the invasive brain experiments of Henry Ralston,
      Kris Bankiewicz and Michael Merzenich. The USDA allegations included leaving
      monkeys unmonitored after surgery, performing a craniotomy on a monkey
      without providing post-operative pain relief, and subjecting at least one
      monkey to multiple injections of a brain-destroying chemical through the
      carotid artery.

      Despite the recent public attention UCSF has earned for their serious and
      ongoing animal welfare violations, officials still refuse to address or even
      acknowledge the problem. They seem far more concerned with celebrating the
      building of the multi-million dollar, 43-acre UCSF campus in Mission Bay,
      which they will do later this week with much self-congratulatory fanfare.

      - Join IDA as we demonstrate against the celebration of the UCSF Mission Bay
      campus, where experiments on animals may soon take place, and demand
      accountability for researchers' flagrant animal welfare violations.

      What: Demonstration at UCSF against animal experimentation
      When: Friday, October 28th from Noon to 1.30 p.m.
      Where: UCSF's new Mission Bay campus, 1675 Owens St. (between Genentech Hall
      and the Mission Bay), San Francisco (click here
      <http://pub.ucsf.edu/missionbay/directions> for directions)

      - IDA also holds weekly outreach events at UCSF's Parnassus Campus every
      Wednesday from noon to at 1:00 p.m. Please help us maintain an ongoing
      presence on campus to show UCSF officials that animal advocates' concerns
      cannot be ignored.

      Please contact Karen Steele at (415) 388-9641 ext. 217 or karen@...
      to RSVP. Posters and leaflets will be provided. For more information on
      UCSF's animal welfare violations, please visit
