"Monkey in a Cage” also highlights Written Declaration 40/2007 which is currently before the European Parliament and calls for a timetable to end all experiments on primates across Europe.
393 MEPs have signed this important Declaration, with a total of 394 needed by 7 September. It is vital that people contact their MEPS TODAY. And urge them to sign the Declaration.

Advice and guidance for this project has been given generously by a music promoter working with Sting and Sheryl Crow. It is estimated that only 8,000 downloads are needed to enter the mainstream charts, so there is little doubt that with your assistance, together we have a very real possibility of achieving our aim, to hit the charts in time for International Primate Day on 1 September.

Remember, as few as 8,000 downloads might be required to put the plight of laboratory primates into the charts, so please download ‘Monkey in a Cage’ today!
