August 20th Launch
UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY. PLEASE FORWARD FAR AND WIDE!
We are writing to invite you to listen to the following powerful protest
song, "Monkey in a Cage", with a view to recommending it to animal lovers
worldwide, who will be asked to download it on its release day - August the
"Monkey in a Cage", (MiaC), written and performed by internationally
acclaimed artist, Maria Daines, has been successful on independent music
charts and Maria will be supporting pop singer "Pink" at the launch of
"Party For Animals World Wide", at Cardiff International Arena, on the 21st
Maria released a cd entitled 'Music United for Animals' to raise awareness
of animal cruelty issues in November 2006, and the project raises funds for
grass roots rescue.
With Europe fast approaching an historic time for campaigners against
primate experiments, our plan is to enable the publicity from MiaC to help
NAVS' Written Declaration 40/2007, which calls for the end of primate
experiments as a priority in Europe. At the time of writing, 296 MEPs have
signed this important Declaration, with a total of 394 needed by September
Advice and guidance for this project has been given generously by a
professional 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.
Needless to add, (as you may already be aware), some of Europe's leading
anti vivisection scientists are starting to work closely with the animal
rights movement, to enable top level science to join forces with established
ethical campaigns. It was great to read specialist Parkinson's research
scientist Dr Claude Reiss' hard hitting challenge to every aspect of Oxford
University's proposed new monkey lab here, posted on the SPEAK website, in
honour of World Lab Animal Day:
You may well also have read neurosurgeon Dr Marius Maxwell's strong views
against the monkey lab here
We feel the time is right for a new initiative to help at this historic
juncture, and we would be delighted if you could pass this email on to as
many people you know worldwide who may be interested in helping laboratory
animals through this unique opportunity.
Last, but by no means least, artist Maria Daines wishes all proceeds from
the song's download to be donated to the incredible, and much deserving,
primate sanctuary in Wales
Together, we can make this happen and put the plight of animals on the media
