Lawsuits Seeks To Turn Chimpanzees Into Legal Persons
« on: December 03, 2013, 04:49:10 AM »
"This morning, an animal rights group known as the Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) filed a lawsuit in a New York court in an attempt to get a judge to declare that chimpanzees are legal persons and should be freed from captivity. The suit is the first of three to be filed in three New York counties this week.

Why are you obsessed with what gets posted in off-topic threads? Go out and seek some new Amiga news and submit it. I don't think you have ever submitted a Amiga news item. That's how you can truly help Amiga.org instead of complaining about silly stuff.

Have you checked which section this is posted in, CommodoreJohn? You could post something about the latest developments in in rubber ducky sex toy research and it'd still be the right section.

This IS getting patently silly.
