You Did It: Air France Cancels Live Monkey Transport for Animal Testing!

Within a few hours of obtaining reports that Air France was planning to transport 60 live monkeys from Africa to a United States laboratory for use in animal experiments, PETA and several of our international affiliates quickly mobilised members and supporters to take action.

Within 24 hours, you and others like you managed to generate 68,000 e-mails, thousands of Facebook posts and tweets, and hundreds of calls. Thanks to your fast work and dedication, we are thrilled to confirm that Air France has cancelled plans to deliver these monkeys into the hands of experimenters!

This fantastic show of support proves once again that strength in numbers and coordinated actions can have a huge effect on companies. This victory couldn’t have been possible without your help. From all of us at PETA, a huge “Thank you!” to everyone who helped stop this transport! We are now urging Air France to create a formal policy to prohibit future shipments of primates to labs.

With this victory so fresh, please use your voice to influence the Home Office not to weaken protection laws for animals in laboratories in future.

      il nazismo non è mai finito. Quello che è stato fatto a milioni di esseri umani, viene fatto da sempre anche sugli animali. I nazisti si autodefinivano superiori e si autorizzavano a fare ogni sorta di crudeltà. Non è la stessa cosa che sta accadendo sugli animali? La peggior cosa che milioni di esseri umani tacciono o non vogliono sapere, o se ne fregano. Il mondo sarà un posto migliore quando applicheremo il rispetto a tutte le forme di vita. Per me il rispetto è una cosa universale. Se c’è è per tutto e tutti.

    Can your conscious minds rest easily knowing you are perpetuating
    in human & unnecessary torture of such beautiful & intelligent creatures??
    Show some humanity & refuse to condemn these poor innocents to hell.

    Please Please re think your actions

    Thank you Laurel

    Or a Boycott of Air France campaign is the only way forward.

  23. avatar beejeanne says:

    Apart from being totally cruel to the animals which are as much a part of God’s creation as humans are, their bodies are different to ours and they respond differently to disease. No human being who does tests on these poor creatures, if they have a conscience, can possibly sleep peacefully at night. These tests are also uneccesssary, there are so many other alternatives in this day and age whereby test results are more positive. CRUELY IS SO ABUSIVE & IS NOT NECESSARY. Decent people would not do this evil. STOP THE CRUELTY NOW.

    Just goes to show that loving animals out weighs animal cruelty. And together we can create one HUGE impact. The fact that these big companies are actually listening to us is something. And it also shows that they have compassion and a heart. Thank you AirFrance UK. Well done everybody.

  36. avatar Filomena Viana says:

    That is not true!!!!

    Please read this answer:

    “Dear Miss/Ms. elizabeth,

    Air France would like to state that nothing allows the airline to decide on the merits of the use of animals in biomedical research. However, it is important and scientifically justified, such as, for example, testing new medical products on the market which need to be proven safe for humans, in line with international regulations. Animals are also used in basic research for new vaccines and in studies of the safety of pharmaceutical products.

    Air France Cargo refuses to transport laboratory animals destined for any use other than medical.

    In addition, Air France Cargo ensures that all biomedical research involving the use of animals in laboratories with which the airline works is fully in line with current legislation and the regulations drawn up by scientific organizations specializing in animal welfare.

    Air France Cargo refuses transportation if the testing protocols do not conform to these regulations and visits all customers to make sure this is the case. Air France Cargo also monitors the supplier, who must comply with the breeding rules in force.

    More generally, Air France scrupulously respects and complies with standards issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the European Union, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).

    Thank you for using the Air France E-Services

    Hello and thank you to all…

    I spent most of yesterday trying to generate momentum to stop the transportation of these poor beings from Africa to America…
    Disgusted by vivisection for a long time, I am glad to see the intervention had a happy ending, but can we really be SURE the monkeys are not being transported today?
    Who is on the field to see if Air France really will keep their word?
    Are they safe? Will they be transported by another carrier? Released in the wild?
    Turned over to a sanctuary, WHAT ???
    PLEASE let us know, Peta !!!
    And thank you for all that you do !
