ApesRPeople2 representative MonkeyMan revealed this message to the world in a press conference designed to save the lives of these Apes. Apekidnapped from Sierra Leone with bloody diamonds up their rectums this pair of precious apes have gone from zoo to sideshow to pharmaceutical lab and now are about to become homeless if aid cannot be brought to rescue them.
The catch is that only "persons" can receive aid under Austrian law and so the fight to declare the primates people.
In an unexpected development both apes have used the sign language taught to them by their human handlers to say unequivocally that they do not want to be people. Heezel the spokesperson-oops-spokesape for the pair signed the following protest: "Persons are humans. . . humans kill their own kind. . . we are not like that. . ."
Heezel and Rosi are Apes. They want to live. They are typing this message to the world!
