Die-in at the Home Office

Between 1994 and 2000, hundreds of higher primates were subjected to grotesque xenotransplantation experiments. Hearts and kidneys from genetically engineered piglets were transplanted into the necks, abdomens and chests of monkeys and baboons captured from the wild. The results were truly appalling.
