The West Papuan people are crying for their freedom – please sign this petition to show your support.
The world’s longest‐running military occupation and genocide has killed more than 500,000 people, and is destroying the world’s second‐largest rainforest and 50,000 years of civilisation. Why haven’t more people heard of West Papua?
Mauritius is the second largest supplier of monkeys for the research industry in the world, exporting up to 10,000 animals every year. These animals are exported primarily to the USA and the European Union, in particular the UK, France and Spain.
The BUAV has uncovered the slaughter of hundreds of monkeys, considered ‘surplus’ to requirement, including pregnant females and youngsters, at one of the largest primate breeding companies on the island, Noveprim Ltd.
This senseless slaughter is just one part of the cruel trade in primates from the island. An earlier investigation carried out by the BUAV obtained evidence of the cruelty and suffering involved in the trapping and breeding of wild monkeys on Mauritius. They are torn from their families and jungle homes and imprisoned in unnatural conditions in large facilities, to produce babies who will later be exported thousands of miles to laboratories around the world to suffer in experiments.

Outrageously, the UK’s still selling weapons – including bomb and missile parts! – to both Israel and Russia.
But now’s our best chance to stop it.
Right now David Cameron’s under intense pressure to suspend all arms licenses to both countries – a senior minister just quit and others are in open rebellion. He’s announced a review, and vowed to stop some arms sales to Israel if fighting resumes. But given his government’s cosy relationship with mass weapons-makers like BAE systems he’ll only commit to firm action if we give him no choice.
