On the afternoon of Saturday August 30th, on an extremely busy Labor Day Weekend, twenty seven activists gathered at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to give Air France a piece of their mind. But this demonstration wasn’t only about Air France, it was also Day 10 of “Dear Monkeys, These Eleven Days of Action are for you” in solidarity with our good friends from Progress for Science and on behalf of the eleven monkeys known to be held hostage in testing labs at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).
Armed with megaphones, signs and leaflets the activists went to work letting the departing flyers, surrounding airlines and employees of the jam packed Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) know exactly what Air France was up to. Activists loudly reminded Air France that they were the FINAL remaining commercial airliner willing to ship non-human primates, dogs and cats to animal testing facilities and that it was time to revamp their business model as all other commercial airliners have agreed to do. Demonstrators reiterated to Air France that the global Gateway to Hell Network of activists is watching and they are not going away and they are not backing down until Air France enacts a ban in writing.
The demonstration was a huge success! Leaflets quickly dissipated into the hands of the eager public demanding to know what they could do to help. Air France and UCLA your animal abusing days are numbered, the public is being exposed to the truth and your dirty secrets are impossible to hide.
Please join Progress for Science and Empty Cages Los Angeles as we join forces again for the next two weekends!
