"Amerijet International, a member of the HIG Capital Group of companies, are a US-based freight airline who hold a dirty secret. This airline are part of the international primate trade, regularly transporting wild-caught monkeys for use in barbaric laboratory experiments.

The majority of these primates flown by Amerijet are captured in the wild in South America and the Caribbean, but all will reside as being used as breeding machines or will die on a laboratory cage floor. Amerijet are the only known airline flying new world primates, such as marmosets, for the vivisection industry - without them, this animal tormet would not happen.

Amerijet's CEO, David Bassett, claims that they refuse to deal with organisations who breach the law, but this is a lie. We have leaked documents from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) which show Amerijet themselves have routinely breached the Animal Welfare Act during transporting primates for experimentation. Over the past several years, Amerijet have broken the Animal Welfare Act a staggering 13 times.

In a flight from Georgetown, Guyana, to Miami International Airport, fifteen Tamerin monkeys were transported in crates with half the sufficient ventilation allowance. This is a routine condemnation in the documents by the USDA Veterinary Officer. Another flight containing two crates of marmosets, another squirrel monkeys, was reported. Capuchin monkeys - insufficient ventilation.

On another flight, Amerijet could not prove that the 23 non-human primates had been provided with food and water. A seperate 23 primates were not given water for 17 hours, feed for 27. The same occured on a second basis whilst sloth and kinkajous monkeys were being transported.

This is just a snapshot into the level of involvement Amerijet have in the trade in primates for vivisection. It is time they stopped dealing in this sickening trade once and for all! "

La campagne contre Amerijet, dont H.I.G. Capital est le principal actionnaire, continue avec une journée internationale d'actions. Un nouveau site anglais énumère les clients d'Amerijet, ses bureaux et ses agences dans le monde: http://www.antivivisection.info/amerijet/index.html

Nous rappelons qu'Amerijet transporte des animaux de laboratoire pour HLS, Primate Products et Worldwide Primates.

* Target: Amerijet International, Inc., CEO David Bassett
* Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

After a peaceful protest and a letter to the only cargo airline in Ft Lauderdale to import monkeys headed for research labs and vivisection, Amerijet has sent a letter to Animal Rights Foundation of Florida stating the airline will not be canceling their “monkey flights” anytime soon and threatened the organization with legal action under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act if they continue to target the airline.

David G. Basset, CEO of Amerijet International, Inc. has said, “to refuse to provide transportation services requested of us does not respect our customers’ right to engage in lawful pursuits.”

However, when Amerijet received notification that one of their clients, Primate Products was under investigation by the USDA for injuring several monkeys, the company continued to do business with them, as usual.

The Fort Lauderdale-based company is the only airline in the country to import research monkeys headed for cruel and inhumane research labs and vivisection experiments.

We ask you to stop shipping research monkeys. It supports these animals being taken from the wild and raised under barbaric conditions on monkey breeding farms. It has been proven repeatedly that experiments on animals yeilds no benefit to human sciences. Requesting a company to change business practices is NOT "Animal Terrorism".

Suggested text for letter

Each year tens of thousands of nonhuman primates are transported around the world for the international research industry, destined to be used in experiments in which they will suffer and most likely die.

These highly intelligent and sensitive animals are packed in small crates, and travel as cargo on extremely long journeys where they may have to endure inadequate ventilation, noise and extreme temperature fluctuations.

Many airlines have made the decision to dissociate themselves from the cruelty and suffering of the international trade in primates by refusing to transport primates destined for the research industry.

I urge you to join this growing number of airlines.

CONTACT TOP CLIENTS
Amerijet's clients have a right to know that the company they are dealing with ships primates to be used in barbaric laboratory experiments and have been exposed as breaching animal welfare legislation 13 times in several years.

- SAMPLE LETTER -
To Whom It May Concern,

It may come as a surprise to you that the company you use as a major
global shipping agent, Amerijet International, are also heavily involved
in the primate trade.

Amerijet have been exposed as breaching the US Animal Welfare Act on 13
seperate occassions over the past several years, including leaving
primates onboard flights for over 24 hours with neither food nor water and
transporting them in crates with insufficient ventilation. The primates
shipped by Amerijet have mainly been caught in the wild, torn from their
natural habitat and families to be used inside experimental laboratories
across the globe.

As one of Amerijet's top customers, I ask that you use your influence and
request they cease involvement in this sickening trade.

Yours Sincerely,

Amerijet's reply to the campaign:

Amerijet Won't Stop Shipping Research Monkeys
By Michael J. Mooney, Tue., Jan. 11 2011 @ 6:15AM

http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/juice/2011/01/amerijet_tells_animal_rights_a.php

Last month, we told you about a letter from local animal rights activists to Amerijet, a Fort Lauderdale-based cargo airline, asking the company to shop shipping primates used for research -- specifically the ones used for controversial vivisection experiments. Several South Florida groups, including the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida, have written to the airline and organized protests outside company headquarters.

Now Amerijet has responded -- in the form of a letter written to Nanci Alexander, president of ARFF (and owner of Sublime, a gourmet vegetarian restaurant on Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale).

From their letter, it seems the decisionmakers at Amerijet will not be canceling their monkey flights anytime soon. "We have carefully considered the position taken by our organization," the letter reads. "However we stand by our decision to transport animals and will continue in the future to serve the needs of our customers for animal transport."

The company says it will continue the primate shipments because, as the letter states, "to refuse to provide transportation services requested of us does not respect our customers' right to engage in lawful pursuits and is inconsistent with our values as a company."

At one point, Amerijet claims that it would "decline to do business with potential customers that are under investigation by governments or other enforcement bodies for failing to meet legal standards or international conventions." Of course, after several disturbing photos of injured monkeys leaked last year, the USDA announced it would investigate one of Amerijet's most controversial customers, the South Florida-based research facility Primate Products. But despite the company's claims, so far it seems Amerijet's business with Primate Products continues as usual.

The letter also contains a plea for ARFF to condemn some of the tactics used by animals rights activists. Though there are no specific tactics mentioned in the letter, there is an insinuation that some violate national terrorism laws:
"Unfortunately, we believe the tactics that have been engaged in or that are planned for the near future by some individuals or groups that have targeted Amerijet are the sort of animal rights extremist actions that federal laws, including the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, are intended to protect law-abiding citizens against -- including our employees and customers."

Representatives from ARFF say they are crafting a letter to respond to Amerijet.

"The number of airlines that continue to transport monkeys for research is shrinking," says Don Anthony, ARFF's communications director. "We're disappointed that Amerijet is determined to be the last American airline to import monkeys to be used in cruel laboratory experiments. The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida will continue to protest Amerijet's involvement in this cruel trade."

Sunday night, a few days after receiving the letter, about 30 local activists gathered at the home of one of Amerijet's executives for a peaceful protest.

This is the Amerijet letter in its entirety:

Dear Ms. Alexander,

Your organization has called upon Amerijet to refuse to transport primates that may be used in research. We have carefully considered the position taken by our organization. However we stand by our decision to transport animals and will continue in the future to serve the needs of our customers for animal transport. We would like to explain briefly the reasons for our decision.

First, we value and respect our customers. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of transportation services for those who have entrusted their shipping needs to us. Just as importantly, we believe in the right of any business or individual to engage in lawful endeavors of their own choosing. To refuse to provide transportation services requested of us does not respect our customers' right to engage in lawful pursuits and is inconsistent with our values as a company.

At Amerijet we strive to comply with all laws, regulations and international conventions that apply to out business, including those relating to the transportation of live animals. Transporting live animals by air is considered to be the most humane and expedient method of transporting animals over long distances, so long as the laws, rules and conventions applying to animal transport are met.

We expect our customers also to make every effort to meet the legal and international standards that concern the welfare of animals transport. We have in the past declined to do business with costumers who were under investigation by government or other enforcement bodies for violations of law or international conventions. We will continue to transport animals for all lawful purposes. We commit to you, however, that we will make every effort to ensure that we are transporting animals for customers that are in turn complying with all legal requirements concerning the welfare of those animals, and will decline to do business with potential customers that are under investigation by governments or other enforcement bodies for failing to meet legal standards or international conventions.

Finally, we are sharing these thoughts with ARFF because we believe ARFF attempts, as we do here at Amerijet, to be a responsible and lawful corporate citizen. We also believe that ARFF respects that individuals and entities will not always agree and that we each are entitled to hold our own views and opinions without fear of physical harm or damage to property because of those views.

Unfortunately, we believe the tactics that have been engaged in or that are planned for the near future by some individuals or groups that have targeted Amerijet are the sort of animal rights extremist actions that federal laws, including the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, are intended to protect law-abiding citizens against - including our employees and customers. We have made the decision to continue to transport animals after careful consideration, and we will not be deterred by what we consider to be unlawful threats, harassment or intimidation of our employees or customers or acts of vandalism or property damage. Instead, we are prepared to defend our employees, our customers, and our business to the full extent of the law.

You have called upon us to consider our position regarding transporting animals, and we have done so thoughtfully and believe we have responded to you honestly and forthrightly despite our differences of opinion. We now ask you to consider the actions and anticipated actions of individuals and groups that ARFF appears to have aligned itself with against Amerijet. We call upon you to publicly denounce any tactic that may intimidate, harass, or cause fear among our employees or our customers simply because they do not agree with those who hold a contrary view. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
David G. Bassett
CEO, Amerijet International, Inc.

Apolonia, I will paste that petition link and try to sign it! Also I emailed sales, and will send additional emails. Thank you for making this easier. Does anyone have emails of those responsible for vivisection? We can protest them and make them aware that we know about them, too!
All beings have the right to self determination. Humans are far astray in mistaken notions of superior wisdom and increased right to dominate and control other beings. We operate in majority fro mere physical input only, which is a trick of the brain. Please try to see that openin and expanding consciousness of how this dimension operates will save the lives of billions of species and individual beings. We are here to help, never to harm. Unfortunately, too few have any concern to develop the ability to see this fact, and our planet is losing life at an alarming rate. Karma is going to become so vast that overcoming our choices of today will engender generations to come, here on Earth and elsewhere.

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act was passed by about 3 or 4 people in a very deceitful way and is not worth the paper it was written. The real terrorists are people like your company that support those who perform atrocities to innocent and defenseless animals. You and others like you and the governments have no conscience and therefore are capable of committing evil acts and are dangerous terrorists, that is who you are. The best thing to do is for people to boycott your airline.

OPERATION AMERIJET - 31/01/2011 Day of Action

As part of the Operation Amerijet international day of action, activists in London will be holding demonstrations against the companies linked with the airline and transporting animals for vivisection.

Amerijet fly wild-caught primates on a regular basis for use in laboratory experiments and breeding for vivisection establishments. They have been exposed for breaching animal protection legislatio...n on 13 seperate occassions and transporting primates in crates with insufficient ventilation.

Across the globe, pressure is mounting against Amerijet and it is important this is upped. In recent months, 6 other airlines have announced they will not be transporting monkeys, or any other animals, for vivisection following the campaign. Demonstrations against Amerijet will be happening across the UK, Europe and USA on the day.

Take action!
Monday 31st Jan
11am at Oxford Circus Tube (nr H&M)

Note: We will be travelling to various companies, so please bring a travel card.

Animal Rights Activists Protest at Amerijet Executive's Home
By Michael J. Mooney, Mon., Jan. 31 2011 @ 11:06AM

About 30 animal-rights activists gathered on the sidewalk outside the Plantation home of an Amerijet executive last night to protest the company's policy of transporting monkeys for animal research and the fact that they do business with Primate Products, a controversial South Florida research facility.

For two hours, the protesters held signs, shouted in the direction of the home, and told neighbors about some of Amerijet's policies. To describe what has been done to monkeys, they used terms like "murder" and "mutilate" and "torture". A camera crew filmed the demonstration from the front yard.

There were two Plantation police officers on the scene for the duration of the protest to make sure activists stayed on the sidewalk and did not step onto the private property. One officer puffed a cigar as he watched the scene play out.

Last year, several local animal rights groups asked the company to stop doing business with Primate Products.

The Fort Lauderdale-based shipping cargo airline sent a letter to activists a few weeks ago stating that the company will not stop shipping monkeys, insinuating that the protesters may be violating national terrorism laws. One protester was arrested recently during a demonstration at the company's headquarters.

OPERATION AMERIJET:
LONDON CALLING
Activists in London marked the global day of action, Operation Amerijet, with a mobile demonstration against those involved with the company.

First of all we headed for HIG Europe, who own two animal transporting airlines - Amerijet and Airnet Systems. Upon arrival, the office was quickly locked down and staff peered out of the windows in interest. Other local companies took information and a lot of support was received. HIG were informed over the megaphone that we will not give in.

Next of all we headed for the UKHQ of World Courier. This disgusting company have lied about being involved in vivisection, yet placed an advert in the Lab Animal Buyer's Guide 2011 as global animal transporters. Not only this, leaked documents show that they are the customs clearance agents for Amerijet's primate flights into Miami - doh!

On arrival we gained access to the building and headed upstairs to ask the MD why they lied, however security staff cottoned on and frantically tried to kick us out. Important guests were in the lobby, so out came the megaphones and they could not ignore posters pressed against the windows. Activists headed round the back of the offices, where staff could be seen hurrying to hide documents left near the windows. After a short while more protesting round the front, we moved on.

Last call of the day was the European HQ of the Sumitomo Corporation, who transport primates for the Japanese vivisection industry. A door had been left open, so it was straight inside. After security guards ran around and pushed everybody outside, the buidling was brought into lockdown. Chants echoed around the area and staff turned away from their lunch breaks as they'd left their security cards inside.

Across the globe, caring activists are standing up and fighting as part of the anti-vivisection movement. It is only a matter of time before we succeed.
