ACT UP San Francisco
opposes all animal testing, including tests on humans. Whether it is
by abusing chimpanzees in laboratories or exploiting humans enrolled
in clinical trials, there has been nothing but failure on the part of
the AIDS industry in their effort to "find a cure." Chimpanzees
have been inoculated over and over with the so-called HIV virus and
never developed AIDS, precisely because HIV
does not cause AIDS. Motivated solely by profit, the Food and Drug
Administration's approval for AIDS drugs is corrupt and easily manipulated
by pharmaceutical companies who release toxic drugs like protease inhibitors
and AZT regardless of how they fare in animal tests.
The truth is that
people aren't dying of AIDS. People are getting sick and dying from
hormone contaminated meat, carcinogenic car fumes, the overuse of antibiotics,
and numerous other immunosuppressive aspects of everyday life in our
toxic, fur worshipping, ozone depleting, money driven, consumerist society.
As hard as it is
for some to believe the federal government is lying to the public about
HIV and AIDS. Of course, this is the same government that continues
to lie about vivisection, tried to cover up the 1940s Tuskegee medical
experiments conducted on African American men, denied the use of agent
orange in Vietnam and gave us the atomic bomb, cloning, and genetic
engineering. This is the genocidal U.S government that fought the Indian
Wars, funds the war on drugs, supports the war on the Zapatistas, and
orchestrated the assassinations of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.
Why should we now trust federal researchers to tell the truth about
what's going on with AIDS.
It is undeniable
that animal testing is unreliable, cruel, wasteful, and harmful to humans.
ACT UP San Francisco therefore opposes all animal testing. Furthermore,
ACT UP San Francisco is opposed to all animal exploitation and advocates
for an animal free diet. Go vegan!
