SPEAK Campaigns - Free Felix National March & Rally in Oxford - Book your coach seats NOW!!!!

Felix is a primate who is currently incarcerated inside Oxford University and will be used in a series of experiments into brain function. The Home Office licence granted for the long-term experiments on Felix allows the infliction of severe/substantial suffering.

Felix has been condemned by Oxford University to live the rest of his life behind bars in a cage that is barely big enough for him. Oxford University will never allow him to see beyond the bars into the natural world where he was born and once lived before being kidnapped and sold to the university. Oxford University will never allow him breathe the fresh air he once did. Oxford University will never allow him to interact and form relationships with his own kind ever again; he will be kept in isolation. His life now will be one of torment and suffering……unless we help him!

Oxford University's vivisectors will implant electrodes deep into his brain peeling away the top of his skull, yet Felix suffering will not end there, this is just a beginning, as Felix can expect months even years of experiments to be performed on him……unless we help him!

Finally, when he has served his tormentors’ purpose and outlived his usefulness, he will be killed and dumped like a piece of rubbish…..unless we help him!

But there is hope for Felix and you are that hope, we are that hope. Already a sanctuary has agreed to take Felix, help us to ‘Free Felix’, Felix needs you and we need you to help us. Wherever you live in the UK, Europe or even the World please join us and together we can Free Felix. Felix is a bright sentient individual whose life belongs to him and no one else.

Join us in Oxford and together we can free Felix from his nightmare. Watch the Fighting for Felix video here
