Gandhi’s AV legacy
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, June 2001:
BRIGHTON, U.K.–Anti-vivisectionist C.K. Yoe won a year-long battle on June 8 when the Imperial Cancer Research Fund pulled a TV spot depicting the Indian vegetarian statesman Mohandas Gandhi. The ICRF won an appeal to the Independ-ent TV Commission, as the use of the image was approved by the New Delhi charity Gandhi Smarak Nidhi–but GSN withdrew the okay upon learning that the ICRF funds vivisection, which Gandhi abhored.
