“Decades of experiments have shown that rats are smart individuals that feel pain and pleasure, care about one another, can read others’ emotions, and will help unfamiliar rats even at a cost to themselves. It’s time to apply what we’ve learned from these animals and stop conducting experiments on them in laboratories.”

El compañero Marius Mason es un prisionero transgénero anarquista, encarcelado desde marzo de 2008 por actos de eco-sabotaje luego de que su ex compañero – Frank Ambrosio -,se volviera informante del FBI. Marius enfrentaba una pena de cadena perpetua si se iba a juicio, por lo que aceptó su participación en la quema de una oficina relacionada con la investigación en alimentos genéticamente modificados, entre otras acciones.

Marius Mason is an anarchist, an environmental and animal rights prisoner serving nearly 22 years in federal prison for acts of sabotage carried out in defense of the planet.
