Air Transport Services Group (ATSG), with their subsidiaries ABX Air and Air Transport International (ATI), is the last airline group transporting primates from China and Southeast Asia to the United States, where they are sent to animal testing labs.
ABX Air‘s main business is transporting cargo for DHL, the major international cargo company, and more than half of ABX Air‘s aircraft are painted with DHL‘s colors. DHL has the power to stop ABX Air‘s animal transports since they are responsible for over half of all of ABX Air‘s business, so we are demanding that DHL either use their influence to force ABX Air to cease these animal transports or end their relationship with ABX Air.
Date: Friday, October 17th
Time: 4:30 - 5:30
Place: DHL Express

Almost every commercial airline in the world has stopped transporting primates to vivisection labs, yet ATSG and their subsidiaries, ABX Air and ATI, continue to transport shipments of thousands of primates at a time in order to make a quick profit -- with no concern for how the airline is facilitating the torture of these animals in labs.
The Bunny Alliance and local activists have organized a demonstration at the San Francisco DHL office to bring the issue to their doors and demand that they cut their ties with the animal testing industry.
Please join us in protesting the transport of animals to vivisection labs where they are subjected to a life of torture and pain.
