Unity Rally for Professor Hussein in Reno – Saturday, May 10
11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Corner of 9th and Virginia Streets

Please come out to show your support for Professor Hussein, who was recently fired from UNR for blowing the whistle on the neglect of UNR’s research animals.

• The rally is also to show UNR that this will not go away, that people are
unhappy with the way UNR has handled this. UNR NEVER apologized for the animal neglect or publicly admitted to it!

• The rally is also to show UNR and local government that whistle blowers should be honored, not punished!

• We are rallying in honor of Professor Hussein for his bravery and heroism in
standing up for animals even though it cost him his job!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture cited the University of Nevada, Reno, for 46 animal welfare violations occurring between May 2004 and March 2005, including “repeatedly leaving 10 research pigs with inadequate water and housing, poor sanitation at animal care facilities, lack of veterinary care, and failure to investigate complaints of neglect. The USDA began an investigation after (Professor Hussein) complained to the USDA in the summer of 2004 about abuse of research animals.” (Associated Press, May 29, 2005)

For more information on the rally, please email Heather at or call 677-9797 and leave a message which will be returned shortly.
