A peaceful world with justice is only possible when the last cage is empty. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. Watch it for free at the site of Nation Earth.

*Veterinary surgeon Dr. André Menache says: “A significant proportion of the funds distributed for basic research is wasted on animal experiments. I use the word wasted because animal studies are not predictive of human outcome. This fact is supported by systematic reviews, complexity theory and evolutionary biology. In the era of the human genome, let us fund studies that rely on our DNA, human cell culture, microfluidics, non invasive imaging and the like. That is what good science is all about.”
