Godfather of Punk, Iggy Pop, has donated a new song and video Free, to help end cruel and vicious experiments on monkeys.
A new video features footage from PETA USA’s investigations into a National Institutes of Health (NIH) experimenter’s painful and invasive “monkey fright” tests in which they inflict permanent and traumatic brain damage on monkeys and then terrorise them with fake snakes and spiders.
“Anyone can see the pain and terror in these monkeys’ eyes. No one should have to suffer like this,” says Iggy Pop, shining a spotlight on the suffering of monkeys in laboratories.
Numerous published studies have shown that animal experimentation wastes resources and lives, as more than 90% of highly promising results from basic scientific research — much of it involving animal testing — fail to lead to treatments for humans.
