Why do outreach at The Postal Chase and Mail Access?
DHL works closely with ABX Air, a cargo airline that transports primates to labs, and The Postal Chase and Mail Access are Authorized Shipping Centers for DHL and public place where DHL customers go to pay for DHL services. This event is an opportunity to reach out and educate the public while putting pressure on businesses that provide DHL services.
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.
Please join us in protesting the transport of animals to vivisection labs where they are subjected to a life of torture and pain.
