action which in 5 hours changed the world.
Reachable Star Or Change The World In Five Hours
Henry went to hospital
Twas Bethesda Naval
and took a picture of an ape
in a restraining chair.
And took it to an international
called Black Star
which sent it round the world..
and Gandhi saw and knew
that the treaty had been violated
.. and cancelled monkey export
.. because Henry in 5 hours
.. saw and reached for
.. one bright and reachable... star!
Countless primates have been strapped
into restraining chairs... they sleep, eat,
pass waste in these chairs... their legs
cramp... they go crazy.
(dedicated to Henry Spira of Manhattan.. maritime
worker organizer, public school teacher,
effective animal rights worker whose
teacher Peter Singer, author of Animal
Liberation, wrote a biography of him.)
Countless primates have been researched
on at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Centers
For Disease Control, National Institutes Of Health,
Harvard, Yale, Cornell, University of Texas,
University of Wisconsin, Oregon schools,
Ohio State, Kent State, Princeton, Emory University,
Oxford, Cambridge and other UK universities
ad infinitum. The Chinese are now breeding
primates for Western research institutes. These
secret torture labs are often underground.
(50,000 underground dogs died at the University
of Texas in a flood.)
Many senators have terrible animal rights
records. Perhaps the 5 worst are
Feinstein, Inhofe, Coburn, Chambliss,
Izakson... who pushed the Animal Enterprise
Terrorism Act which criminalizes the
It was Prime Minister Indira Gandhi
who cancelled export.
