Thank you for the posting Jan.

Recently, Philippine Airlines flew 190 pig-tailed macaque monkeys, who were crammed into tiny crates, from Indonesia to the Los Angeles International Airport. Once there, the monkeys were transported thousands of kilometers in loud, dark, and terrifying cargo trucks to a laboratory where monkeys have been subjected to cruel and deadly experiments in which they are intentionally infected with diseases and have holes drilled into their skulls.
Philippine Airlines continues to ship monkeys to laboratories for use in experimentation, even though almost every other major airline has already stopped this cruel practice. Many of the monkeys who are transported on Philippine Airlines flights to laboratories are torn away from their families in the wild.

Put this here as it is connected to labs,
FACT: Thousands of sentient beings suffer and die inside Oxford University Laboratories in the name of ‘medical progress’!
FACT: Many animal experiments at Oxford University are done just to satisfy ‘scientific’ curiosity and attract grant money!
FACT: Researchers at Oxford have been investigated for blatant acts of animal cruelty, yet no researcher has ever been prosecuted!
Oxford University own a substantial chunk of the City of Oxford. Need more reasons to boycott the City of Oxford and Oxford University?

Sign to stop the transport of monkeys by Hainan.
This company is linked to the horrific Covance
Following the success of the recent campaign to stop China Eastern transporting primates from China to North America for the research industry, we have now confirmed through multiple sources that Hainan Airlines started transporting primates again just six days after China Eastern stopped.
With this decision Hainan Airlines is breaching an agreement they made with not to transport primates in February last year. Because of this we must respond in a way that reminds other airlines of the level of negative exposure that comes from breaking their promises!
Please urgently email Hainan Airlines to let them know how you feel about their latest business decision to resume transporting primates. A sample letter and block of emails are provided below:
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Hu01@hnair.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Luanda@hnair.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Toronto@hnair.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Berlin@hnair.com, Belgium@hnair.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
For the attention of Hainan Airlines;
It has come to my attention that your company has recently made the business decision to begin transporting primates for the research industry again, despite the fact that only last February you decided to stop due to the negative publicity that this business activity generates. I would like to remind you of the promise you have previously made and assure you that the negative image is now amplified as you have not only taken the decision to support unacceptable cruelty but you have also proved yourselves to be duplicitous liars!
You should be aware of the strength of feeling about this issue and that the 89% of Europeans and many, many North Americans find that primate experimentation is unacceptable under any circumstances, so you should factor the impact of this negative exposure with any potential profit you will see from resuming this sordid practice. Animals in laboratories suffer unimaginable cruelty in experiments that could easily be replaced with more reliable testing methods and by transporting them you are helping to perpetuate an unreliable, outdated and extremely controversial science that should have been replaced 30 years ago.
I simply cannot accept that your company has acted in such a manner and I assure you that I will do everything in my power to encourage people not to fly with your airline until you resume your ban on primate transports and agree never to resume this practice in future. There is a very good reason why so many airlines have now banned this practice, and why both El Al and Air Canada have even fought legal battles for the right to end their involvement in this vile trade and now that you have changed you can now expect the same negative exposure that so quickly changed your competitors business decisions.
In anticipation of your public response,
Please feel free to share this email alert to ensure they hear from as many concerned individuals as possible: http://www.gatewaytohell.net/ ======================================
I have signed every petition that wasn't closed. I can't believe I missed some. I get so sick of this human race. I wish I could change every-ones' mind on how to treat animals. I Love every animal. I hate anyone who treats them bad. I turned in a friend for abusing his dog. I don't care, He should have known better. Everyone I know, knows how I am. My son would do harm to anyone he would catch. We also need to stop the testing on animals too! One thing I would like to point out is, the last time I checked, animals are not the same as us. Why use them??
Survey completed per instructions. I'm going to try to share this and should be able to do so.
Urge NIH to adopt recommendations
and retire all chimpanzees to sanctuary
Deadline: Saturday, March 23
Please follow the instructions below to give your input to NIH – deadline Saturday, March 23.
Step 1: Visit the Request for Information website.
Step 2: Fill in your name and email.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom. In the box titled “Overall Comments,” please use the following talking points to write short comments.
- Thank NIH director Dr. Francis Collins for his vision and commitment to providing humane and better care to chimpanzees. Thank him for acknowledging and honoring the NIH’s commitment to their lifetime care.
- Ask Dr. Collins to use his authority to transfer dollars for the housing and care of chimpanzees in laboratories to those same chimpanzees’ housing and care in sanctuary.
- If the chimpanzees remained in labs, NIH would continue to support them. Those same funds will be better spent in sanctuary. Appeal to Dr. Collins to transfer federal dollars to sanctuary care, now!
- Assert that a reserve population of chimpanzees is unnecessary, as past and present science disproves any need for chimpanzees in research. Refer to scientists at an Institute of Medicine hearing who testified chimpanzees have no future value in research. Wholeheartedly recommend all federally owned chimpanzees be transferred to sanctuary.
Signed, and so sick of animal testing that I could vomit!
THE STORY OF MONKEY 88978
His leg was tattooed upon arrival. He had been captured in the jungles of Mauritius whilst foraging for food. After being trapped, he was held captive on a farm owned by the company, Noveprim, on Mauritus. He stayed there for several months along with other monkeys who, like him, had been separated from their families. >>>Read more
With the findings of this investigation, Animal Equality aims to reveal of life for monkeys used be the research industry – a reality that is concealed by the industry itself.
Animal Equality is launching a global petition to close the Camarles centre, and will also be demanding that Air France and Aeronova - two companies responsible for transporting these animals to their fate - will end their involvement in this brutal trade.
We ask you to please sign this petition demanding that the Camarles primate breeding and supply farm is closed down. By signing the petition, you also request that Air France and Aeronova cease transporting primates for the purpose of research

To whom it concerns,
United Airlines is involved with transporting nonhuman primates destined for use in research laboratories to suffer cruel and inhumane experiments.
Packed into small wooden crates and travel as cargo in the holds on passenger airlines, monkeys can endure inadequate ventilation, noise, temperature fluctuations and delays en route as they are shipped on extremely long journey for research experiments.
Other major airlines, including Air Canada, Air China, American, Delta, Lufthansa, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and many others have already abandoned this cruel practice.
I urge United Airlines to stop transporting primates for research.

The tobacco industry and federal government both are still funding nicotine and smoking experiments on animals.
Every year in the U.S., hundreds of animals are harmed and killed in experiments to test the effects of nicotine and tobacco.
In Defense of Animals points out, "Animal experiments failed to demonstrate that exposure to cigarettes and tobacco smoke caused lung and other forms of cancer, which is now undisputed in humans."
So the point of continuing these cruel experiments is WHAT?
Other than to collect government funding?
We don't want our tax money to go towards conducting nicotine experiments on pregnant and newborn animals - we already know that pregnant mothers should not smoke.
Stop testing and torturing animals in useless experiments to collect government funding. Sincerely:
Couldn't do Revlon either but all else done

Congress Holding Military Accountable for Killing Animals!
The year is off to a good start. We have another PCRM campaign victory to announce, and we have our supporters to thank! For the first time, a bill was signed into law that demands accountability from the Department of Defense for its killing of more than 7,500 animals each year in medical training courses.
The massive National Defense Authorization Act, approved last month by the Senate and House of Representatives, contains a provision that calls on the Secretary of Defense to report to Congress by March 1, 2013, on a strategy, including a detailed timeline, for replacing the use of animals with human-based methods. Last night, the president signed the bill into law.
PCRM has been working nonstop on Capitol Hill since the original BEST Practices Act was introduced, and this marks the first time that any part of Congress has passed binding legislative language on this issue. It is the strongest stand Congress has ever taken on this issue, making it clear that members of Congress want the Department of Defense to provide the highest level of training to service members and begin to end its cruel and unnecessary use of animals.
In many of the military’s combat trauma training courses goats or pigs are shot and their limbs are amputated. Trainees are told to keep the animals alive as long as possible. At the end of each course, the animals are killed.
We will continue to work with Congress to hold the Department of Defense accountable in order to ensure that a transition toward human-based medical training happens as quickly as possible.
This legislation is a big step forward, and PCRM and its supporters can take credit for that. Tens of thousands of you signed petitions, sent e-mails, made phone calls, and even personally visited with your members of Congress to make this happen.
I am looking forward to sharing more victories with you in the coming year. Together, we can continue to save lives.

Signed. I wrote to them the other day because the lab they were sending them to is Alderley Park near Macclesfield in Cheshire.Glad to see a petition up and running quickly. The UK is responsible for 35 per cent of animals used in experiments in the EU I am ashamed to say and including those killed because of overbreeding a calculation has been made that 28,100 of these poor animals is KILLED EVERY DAY. What is inexcusable is that these numbers have been increasing hand in hand with the emergence of technological non-animal methods. One has to seriously ask the UK labs 'What the hell do you think you are doing?'

To whom it concerns,
AstraZeneca has announced that it's kennel at Rååhöjden Örkelljungawould be phased out. A lot of people with great knowledge about the dogs have been in touch to offer them loving homes, but you seem to refuse to give the dogs a chance for a new life. So either they will be sold to undergo painful animal experiments abroad or they will be killed, according to information from Astra itself. Is this correct?
We want to know why AstraZeneca does not want to relocate them to loving homes!?
All of us want these dogs to get a second chance, on the other side of AstraZeneca's grid! Sincerely:
Thanks for the sweet Snoopy wishes Sandi!

email@example.com: Stop Supporting Inhumane Spinal Cord Experiments on Animals
CEO, Mary Kay Corporation
CEO, Estee Lauder
To whom it concerns,
As American firms jostle for a piece of China’s $15-billion-and-growing cosmetics market, Avon, Mary Kay, and Estée Lauder have quietly turned their backs on 20 years of "no animal testing" policies, according to People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals , which until recently counted all three among the largest mainstream names on its cruelty-free list.
Although animal testing of cosmetics is neither required nor banned under U.S. law, the Chinese government continues to require skin- and eye-irritation tests before certain products can be marketed in the country.
Note that I'm very disappointed in your backsliding.
I still won't buy your products as long as they are tested on animals!
Minister of the Environment
The International Primate Protection League has learned that Ms Anabelle Zamir has been on hunger strike protesting the activities of the Mazor Farm procuring and breeding primates from Mauritius for experimentation.
I understand that legal proceedings against the farm are ongoing, and hope that you will make a decision that will be favorable to the monkeys who have done nothing to deserve suffering and death at the hands of experimenters.
I hope that Ms Zamir's courage will be rewarded with a favorable decision in this important case.

I signed and left a comment. It is not the smoker or the Parkinsons sufferer or any other normal person responsible. The only ones responsible for these obsenities are the monsters in the labs who are addicted to inflicting pain. They would always find another outlet for their sadistic fettishes as they are in the best position of all to know that these experiments are never and never have been necessary. These experiments are a means of feeding their obnoxious appetite for torturing the defenceless and have absolutely nothing to do with finding cures for anything. Just read the list of side effects on any prescription drug.

Selon le 7ème amendement, adopté en 2003, de la directive sur les Cosmétiques (76/768/CEE), l'interdiction de tous les tests sur animaux pour les produits cosmétiques doit prendre effet le 11 mars 2013. Aujourd'hui, sept ans plus tard, vous annoncez que la Commission Européenne est incapable de remplir son engagement au motif que certaines méthodes de remplacement ne seront pas disponibles à temps pour respecter l'échéance de 2013.
Nous rejetons complètement vos arguments et exigeons que vous respectiez vos obligations légales pour les raisons suivants:
1. Une société civilisée n’a pas besoin de nouveaux cosmétiques si le fait de les produire signifie aveugler, brûler, intoxiquer, étouffer et tuer des animaux. Les produits sans cruauté que nous trouvons déjà sur le marché s'avèrent être largement satisfaisants.
2. Les tests sur animaux que la Commission Européenne tient à maintenir en vigueur ne servent guère à protéger la santé des consommateurs.
Le principe que l’expérimentation animale n’est pas scientifiquement fiable ni prédictive pour l’homme est reconnu par un nombre toujours grandissant d’académiciens et d’institutions de renommée internationale. Ces derniers exigent, avec une insistance toujours croissante, un changement radical de paradigme dans le domaine de la toxicologie, et la substitution des tests sur animaux par des tests in vitro, in silico et par les technologies "–omiques" qui se servent de matériel d’origine humaine.
3. Compte tenu du fait que les tests sur animaux ne sont pas prédictifs pour l'espèce humaine, il est évident que le vrai cobaye sur lequel les industries expérimentent chaque jour l’éventuelle dangerosité de ce qu’elles produisent n’est autre que le consommateur. C’est sur nous que sont testés les 20'000 nouveaux produits introduits chaque année sur le marché.
4. Une approche basée sur le « poids des preuves » (éidémiologie, observation clinique, études in vitro et in silico) devrait remplacer l'actuelle procédure qui sert à valider de nouvelles méthodes. D'ailleurs, la procédure de validation actuelle a été le principal obstacle à leur approbation réglementaire et a retardé l'utilisation de technologies innovantes qui sont fiables, pertinentes et beaucoup plus rapides pour déterminer les risques que les substances chimiques font courir à la santé publique. Les méthodes substitutives doivent être soutenues par tous les moyens: elles doivent être subventionnées, encouragées, rendues publiques et obligatoires par la loi.
5. La loi exige que les tests substitutifs soient scrupuleusement filtrés et validés avant d’entrer dans l’usage courant. Mais la même obligation n’existe pas et n’a jamais existé pour les tests sur animaux: Aucun d'eux n'a en effet jamais été validé. Si cette même rigueur scientifique était appliquée à l’expérimentation animale, celle-ci serait interdite depuis fort longtemps !
Pour toutes ces raisons, nous vous demandons de respecter l'échéance de 2013.
Interdisons une fois pour toutes ces tests qui tuent tant d'animaux pour les cosmétiques !
