We welcome February with some excellent news!
Thank you to all of you who read and acted on yesterdays post asking you to contact Air France and ask them not to transport 60 live primates from Africa to the USA for vivisection purposes. Within just 24 hours of Peta finding out about the planned Air France transportation and prompting all of us to take action, 68,000 e-mails, thousands of Facebook and Twitter posts along with hundreds of calls were generated in support. Peta has now confirmed that Air France has cancelled their plans!
This once again proves that there really is strength in numbers and simply sparing a moment of your time to sign a petition or send an e-mail really makes a difference!
As always, there is still work to be done and we now need to continue to work on Air France and ask them to create a formal policy prohibiting future shipments of primates to animal testing labs. Please click here in order to contact the Home Office and urge them not to weaken protection laws for animals in laboratories in the future.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
