At this demonstration, we will be joining with other activists across the country in protesting Delta's involvement in the flying of primates, dogs, and other animals to labs where they are tortured and killed.

We are targeting Delta Air Lines because it is in a strategic partnership with Air France and is its North America representative—and Air France is one of the last commercial airlines to continue the practice of shipping animals to labs. The campaign against Delta Air Lines is to demand that they force Air France to place a permanent ban on the transportation of all animals being shipped to vivisection labs across the world. It is vital that we stop these shipments of animals, and Delta Air Lines is in a position of authority to influence and enforce an Air France ban on shipments of animals to labs.

Additional Information:

No animals = No vivisection! Many animals, such as nonhuman primates, are bred in farms or captured from the wild on remote islands. For many laboratories, most of whom cannot breed their own primates, their only way to obtain the animals they desire is to import them from countries such as China, Mauritius and Vietnam. By pressuring airline companies with the negative exposure that comes with the vivisection industry, this vital link can be removed and the monkeys cannot be obtained at all. Since there are so few airlines left who are willing to fly laboratory animals, this can sometimes also mean the closure of breeding farms if they cannot profit from selling animals.
