    Activist Ryan Shapiro Sues NSA, FBI, DIA

    Ryan Shapiro

    Animal rights activist and MIT Ph.D. candidate Ryan Shapiro has filed a lawsuit against the National Security Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Defense Intelligence Agency for their failure to respond to his Freedom of Information Act requests. Shapiro is working on his dissertation, titled, "Bodies at War: Animals, Science, and National Security in the United States," which examines how animal rights activists are marginalized under the guise of national security.

    Humane Cosmetics Act

    Congressman Jim Moran (D, VA) has introduced the Humane Cosmetics Act, H.R. 4148, to prohibit cosmetics testing on animals in the United States and phase out the sale of imported cosmetics that were tested on animals.
