The New England Anti-Vivisection Society - - and Chimpanzees

The New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS) is working to spread the word in Rhode Island about their current national campaign. Project R&R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories seeks to end the use of chimpanzees in biomedical research and testing and to help provide them release and restitution in permanent sanctuary. They are spearheading a bill with the HSUS called the Great Ape Protection Act, and one of the leads is Rhode Island Representative Jim Langevin.

BARC: One among the 12,000

PETA recently announced a major victory in their KFC campaign, for which BARC held a demonstration in April. President Ingrid Newkirk announced:

"Following more than five years of intense campaigning, numerous undercover investigations, and over 12,000 demonstrations against KFC around the world, I'm happy to announce that KFC Canada will be making sweeping changes to the ways it raises and kills chickens slaughtered for its restaurants."

BARC is proud to have been one of the 12,000 demonstrations that are starting to make a difference. Read more about the recent victory at
