Reply from Air France to my protest letter "Please Stop Transporting Primates to Laboratories!

'

Hello Monika,

 

RE: Case Number 11410701

 

Thanks for writing. We understand your feelings surrounding this issue and are glad you let us know how our actions have been perceived. Your concerns have been reported to the appropriate leadership for their internal review. 

 

When transporting live animals for medical research purposes, Air France respects and complies with standards issued by the International Air Transport Association, the European Union, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and the World Organization for Animal Health.

 

Regards,

 

Ruby M. Thomas

You Share, We Care

URGENT: Can You Spare 3 Minutes to Help Monkeys Tomorrow, February 13?

'

FACT: China is the largest supplier of primates for experimentation worldwide.

FACT: China Southern Airlines is the only major airline based in China that has not banned the transport of primates bound for labs.

FACT: We need your help to urge China Southern Airlines to stop sending monkeys to laboratories to be tortured and killed.

Traumatized monkeys destined for use in experiments are crammed into small crates and loaded into the dark, terrifying cargo holds of China Southern Airlines' planes. Once they arrive at the laboratories, the monkeys are subjected to painful experiments and may be injected with or force-fed experimental chemicals or infected with diseases.

We Need Your Help

Please join the international protest against China Southern Airlines by calling the airline tomorrow, February 13. Tell the company that you won't be flying with the airline until it stops transporting primates for use in experiments. 

CALL NOW:
China Southern Airlines' international hotline is +86 400869553922.
(Note: A short recording in Mandarin will play before the English message.)

Want to Do More?

  • E-mail China Southern Airlines at  flychinasouthern@csair.com.  
  • Sign the petition urging China Southern Airlines to ban primate shipments

 Thank you for taking action for animals! Your letters and phone calls make a difference.

Sincerely,
The PETA Asia-Pacific Team

Ape escape: the argument to keep chimpanzees out of cages

Steven Wise on why chimps deserve ‘the right to not be imprisoned’

'

Steven Wise has been waiting more than 30 years to give chimpanzees their day in court. A lawyer who specializes in animal protection, Wise is widely credited as a pioneer in the animal rights arena: he’s taught classes on the subject at schools including Harvard and John Marshall Law School, has written four books and countless journal articles, and is the former president of the influential Animal Legal Defense Fund.

But it’s only in recent months that Wise’s work has made national headlines. In early December, the Nonhuman Rights Project — a group that Wise founded and now runs — filed three landmark lawsuits on behalf of captive chimpanzees living in New York state. With ample scientific evidence on their side, Wise and his colleagues are hoping to prove that because chimpanzees demonstrate complex cognitive abilities, they should be recognized as legal persons with the right to live free from confinement.

Animals  (tags: wildlife, suffering, sadness, humans, habitat, ethics, cruelty )
Jill - 1 hour ago - blog.africageographic.com

Over the years, humans have developed a fascination with the great apes which has unfortunately resulted in the capturing, selling and killing of these beautiful creatures for use in circuses, zoos, medicine and even as pets or bushmeat.

Protect Chimpanzees From Illegal Bushmeat Trade

Chimpanzees share 98% of our genetic make-up. Much like us, these intelligent and social beings form strong family bonds, seek to protect each other from harm, and nurture their young. However, humans are directly contributing to the demise of wild chimpanzee populations through the thriving illegal commercial bushmeat trade.

SAMPLE MESSAGE, (edit for more impact):

===================================

 

Dear Air Transport Services representative;

 

I have been horrified to discover that one of your subsidiary companies has accepted a contract to transport a huge number of mon_keys from Ch_ina to the United States in order for them to be exper_imented upon in res_earch lab_oratories!

 

Monk_eys in laborat_ories suffer unimaginable cru_elty in exper_iments which have little if any benefit for human health. The mac_aque mon_keys you transport have a comparable awareness of a three year-old human child, so, as you can imagine, they are capable of extraordinary levels of mental suffering.

 

I urge you in the strongest possible terms not to transport these ani_mals, and instead I ask you to reconsider you to ban the transportation of rese_arch pri_mates as so many other air cargo carriers have!

 

Please take a stand against ani_mal crue_lty by cancelling any planned ship_ments of pri_mates and making a pledge not to transport res_earch prima_tes in future.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

YOUR_NAME_HERE

URGENT - THEY FOUND A WAY ROUND IT
3 years ago

I got this and sent all mails. All were rejected as banned content. The mail has breaks and underscores in key words so I think my 'banned content' may be the words ape and monkey in my email address. Perhaps you could try a batch and see?

Following a global call-in day last month, China Southern Airlines implemented a temporary ban on the transportation of primates into Chicago.

This means that there are currently no passenger carrying airlines willing to transport animals from China to the USA and anyone wanting to import primates from China to the US will have to charter a cargo plane for the purpose.

 

We have now received information from a whistle blower that ABX Air, a subsidiary company of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), will be transporting a shipment of 1,200 primates from China in the next few days!

 

ATSG is an American holding company, listed on the NASDAQ, who's various subsidiary companies offer the full range of charter cargo services, from logistics and ground transport through to aircraft maintenance and pilot training. The 1,200 animals will all be shipped on a specially chartered plane to spread the cost of transportation, although it will still be significantly more expensive than the labs were paying passenger airlines for shipping.

 

The American research industry has been struggling to import sufficient primates recently due to the successes of the airline campaigns so it is vital that we keep up the pressure on them and ensure that this shipment is also stopped! Please urgently contact Air Transport Services Group, (ATSG), to ask them to cancel any planned shipments of primates and implement a policy not to transport primates for the research industry in future!

Dear Sirs,

I am shocked to know that in the streets of Indonesian cities monkeys are forced by their owners to dress doll costumes, dance, ride scooters and bikes and even smoke to make money entertaining tourists.

Please, ban immediately the capture of monkeys from the wild and the monkey trade in local markets.

I also ask to stop the awful dogs fighting, an atrocious phenomenon widespread in your country.

I ask you to create an Indonesian Animal Protection Law or strengthen the current article 302 of the Criminal Code to make illegal all activities that involve the abuse of animals.

Please, stop this cruelty!

SAMPLE LETTER:

======================================

 

For the attention of China Southern Airlines;

 

It has come to my attention that your company has been transporting primates destined for the research industry, despite the fact that Nature Magazine declared that your company had not transported primates for 6 months since your ground handlers refused to unload the animals from your planes in Los Angeles last year. However, it is now become clear that you simply switched to transporting the animals through Chicago and carried on transporting to Europe as normal rather than actually stopping your transports!

 

Animals in laboratories suffer unimaginable cruelty in experiments that could easily be replaced with more reliable testing methods, and by transporting them your company is helping to perpetuate an unreliable, outdated and extremely controversial science that should have been replaced

30 years ago.

You should be aware that China Southern Airlines are now one of only four carriers still willing to transport primates for the research industry, and so I urge you in the strongest possible terms to join the vast majority of the airline industry and end your support for this cruel practice.

 

I simply cannot accept that primates continue to be used in such meaningless experiments and I assure you that I will do everything in my power to encourage people not to fly with your airline whilst you continue to support this cruel practice. There is a very good reason why so many airlines have 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 trade, but now that your airline has been exposed for transporting primates you can expect the negative PR that comes with being associated with the primate research industry.

 

In anticipation of your public response on this issue,

Monkey Pet

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/4866319/justin-bieber-monkey-arrest.html

 

This talentless brat should never have that poor monkey back. He is not above the law and this should be a clear case of confiscation as it would be in U.K. The arrogant little upstart obviously thinks he can do as he pleases and the latest 'cutting' nonsense from fans all over Twitter is disgusting. He is no role model for our young people and this is just the kind of thing that encourages others to have monkeys as pets. It is time the law dealt with this problem. I wonder how many people realise that it is common practice to remove their teeth, because of course monkeys bite if upset - it is their only form of defense. I am really angry this morning. We have taken in a previous pet monkey who had his canines removed - all for the convenience of the pet owner.

3 years ago

Amazing how stupid humanity is! I am sure those people who own monkeys as pets love them and think they are helping them. Just goes to show that sometimes, bad things are done in the name of love. I agree with Jan; the laws should be changed, but that's not going to happen unless we can educate the public and by that, I mean people who love animals but who don't think of the consequences of their actions.
