NYCLASS PROTESTS METLIFE’S SILENCE CONCERNING ABANDONED CHIMPS

METLIFE TOUTS CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY, BUT TURNS BLIND EYE TO MEDICALLY-TESTED CHIMPS

NEW YORK – NYCLASS and animal rights advocates will meet TODAY, TUESDAY, MAY 17 AT 5PM to protest MetLife’s silence regarding New York Blood Center’s decision to abandon chimps after conducting a series of medical tests on the animals.

WHO: NYCLASS and fellow animal rights advocates from TheirTurn and Care2

WHAT: Protesting MetLife’s Silence concerning Medically-Tested Chimps

WHEN: Today, May 17th 5PM-6:30PM

CONTACT: JOHN COLLINS, 212 681 1380
