The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) staged a massive protest at the headquarters of the New York Blood Center, the organization that abandoned 66 ex-lab chimpanzees on islands in Liberia with no food or water after earning $500 million in royalties off of the research.

The protest featured several prominent speakers, including Claudine André, the founder of the world famous bonobo sanctuary, Lola Ya Bonobo. Ms. André traveled from the Democratic Republic of Congo to participate.

    This unkind and unfair

    HSUS? this has nothing to do with them really, except they are protesting the chimps being abandoned. They aren’t taking money here, they’re raising awareness about the blood centers failings. Where’s the scam here? These aren’t the dim wits, that would be the blood center, these are people who care. Your comment here doesn’t make sense.

      This is one of a multitude of links where the HSUS is asking for donations for these chimps.
