Protest New York Blood Center Board Member for Abandoning Chimps

NY Blood Center Board Member Michael Hodin is stuck between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, he doesn't want to alienate his benefactor, Howard Milstein, who appointed him to the NYBC board and to the board of his bank. (Milstein is the Chairman of the board of the NY Blood Center, and he is digging in his heels on the chimp issue). On the other hand, he doesn't want protesters in front of his building every week, especially in light of the fact that his neighbors are flying off the handle (stay tuned for video). Perhaps these frustrated neighbors will redirect their anger at Hodin, if they haven't already, in light of the fact that they're not getting anywhere with us. Please join Animals Battalion, NYCLASS and TheirTurn for this protest.

Protest At Mayor de Blasio's Fundraiser: Demand Action For Horses

Mayor de Blasio is having a $1,000 per plate fundraiser at his home. He will be there. And so will we.

Join us to protest at Gracie Mansion Oct 17th, 5PM - 8PM to demand that he take action for the carriage horses.  More than 200 people came to the last protest -- the Mayor WILL be home, so let's show him our strength in numbers! Despite claiming that he’s an advocate for animals, the Mayor still has done nothing and said nothing about Norman the carriage horse who COLLAPSED in the middle of the street from exhaustion at 2:00 AM over Labor Day weekend. Please RSVP below.
