Queens, N.Y. – “Cruelty Doesn’t Fly: EGYPTAIR, Ban Monkey Shipments!” That’s the can’t-be-missed message PETA supporters will unfurl on the counter of EGYPTAIR at John F. Kennedy (JFK) Worldwide Airport tomorrow, following reviews {that a} cargo of tons of of laboratory-bound monkeys are en route from Cambodia.

When:    Thursday, June 23, 3 p.m.

The place:    JFK Worldwide Airport, Queens, EGYPTAIR terminal

In simply three months, the airline has reportedly flown greater than 4,000 monkeys into JFK, posing a grave, probably deadly public well being threat and inflicting immense struggling to the animals, who’re packed into small picket crates and locked inside cargo holds. PETA notes that just about each main airline on the planet has stopped transporting monkeys to laboratories and that JFK is the solely U.S. airport to which EGYPTAIR ships primates.

“The monkeys who survive the grueling days-long journey in cargo holds and vans find yourself being mutilated and killed in laboratories,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “PETA is asking on EGYPTAIR to affix different airline trade leaders in banning the cargo of struggling, lab-bound primates.” 

PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals should not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra info, please go to PETA.org or comply with the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
