VICTORY: Your Voice Saves Monkeys!

Have friends who tell you that your voice can’t make a difference? They’re wrong!

Within 24 hours of generating tens of thousands of e-mails, thousands of Facebook and Twitter posts on Air France’s public sites, and hundreds of phone calls to the airline’s cargo offices (so many that the airline shut down its phone line and Facebook wall!), PETA supporters convinced Air France to cancel the shipment of 60 monkeys to cruel deaths at a notoriously awful laboratory.

This victory is because of YOU!

Thank you for raising your voice to stop animals from being caged, poisoned, and killed. Because of you, the animal testing industry has a thorn in its side—and we won’t stop until animals are no longer seen as test tubes but instead as the living, feeling, intelligent beings they are.

Want to do more to help? Ask Air France and other major airlines to enact a policy prohibiting all future shipments of primates to laboratories.

On behalf of animals everywhere, thank you!

    Please be aware that one cancelled flight , means nothing for these animals and they will most likely end up in a lab . Air France continue to ship monkeys to labs and they are hard nosed about it , keep up the pressure on them !

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
