MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's parliament voiced its support on Wednesday for the rights of great apes to life and freedom in what will apparently be the first time any national legislature has called for such rights for non-humans.
Parliament's environmental committee approved resolutions urging Spain to comply with the Great Apes Project, devised by scientists and philosophers who say our closest genetic relatives deserve rights hitherto limited to humans.
"This is a historic day in the struggle for animal rights and in defense of our evolutionary comrades, which will doubtless go down in the history of humanity," said Pedro Pozas, Spanish director of the Great Apes Project..."

Mistaken for direct decendents, no doubt. Probably actually first cousins. The US congress has got to be next then.

Ape Rights

The truth is, giving apes "human rights" means as little to them as it does to most humans on this planet. It's just a term. (Even Libya and Saudi Arabia say they give their people "human rights".)
