Storyline

From the hyphotesis of British journalist Edward Hoope, the film reopens the explosively controversial subject of the origins of AIDS, zeroing in specifically on his fiercely contested proposition that the HIV virus was first transmitted to children in the Belgian Congo via contaminated polio vaccine.

The Chimpanzee Holocaust
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is bad enough for the irresponsibility of Science to create a plague that will devastate a species, but it is even worse when the priests of this Church of Science feel it is morally defensible to use man's closest living relative. the Chimpanzee, as a laboratory victim, and to systematically destroy these creatures in Death Camps, far from the scrutiny of society.

This movie represents far more than the excesses that Science will go to; the kind of Science that was practiced in the Nazi Death Camps.

This movie represents nothing less than a Chimpanzee Holocaust.

These scientists should be brought to trial. Science itself must stand before the tribunal of History. I have recorded a DVD of this film. I have found it unavailable for purchase on DVD. The Scientific and Pharmaceutical Community and their army of lawyers are keeping it from the public as much as they can.

DVD recordings can easily be burnt onto VHS, or so I've heard. Someone should do that.

I welcome discussion at eurydice@cruzio.com
