The BUAV has reported that a key meeting is due to be held at China Southern Airlines head office in the next few days to discuss whether the airline will restart transporting shipments of primates from China to the USA.
Gateway To Hell have also received information that their shipments into Chicago were stopped last month after the last global call-in day, which would be the second time they have stopped their transports, but now we need to stop them transporting primates permanently!
Please urgently contact China Southern Airlines and politely request that the airline does not start transporting primates again. Phone numbers, emails and a sample letter are included below:
====================================== TALKING POINTS, (facts to mention when calling): ======================================
* If China Southern Airlines start transporting primates again they would be the only Chinese airline would be the only airline transporting primates for the research industry; Air China, Hainan Airlines and China Eastern Airlines have all implemented bans!
* China Southern Airlines was fined $14,438 by the USA for 8 violations of the animal welfare act whilst transporting primates between China and the USA!
* China Southern Airlines left a shipment of 25 primates in their shipping crates for 5 days without food or water, including leaving them for 60hrs in direct sunlight. The surviving animals resorted to cannibalism in order to survive!
====================================== NUMBERS, (listed by country, sorted alphabetically): ======================================
It has come to my attention that their will soon be a meeting at your HQ to decide on whether to restart the transportation of primates into Chicago. I would like to remind you of the reasons why you stopped these transports last month and assure you that should you choose to start transporting primates again then you can expect to face sustained protests.
Instead, you should use this meeting to implement a complete ban on the transport of primates for the research industry, as already implemented by Air China, China Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines. In fact China Southern is one of only three passenger carrying airlines and therefore I urge you in the strongest possible terms to stop these transports entirely!
In anticipation of your public response on this issue,
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
