Demo Report: February 9th, 2014

887330_10201558528590010_2083255475_o On February 9, around 20 activists held a demonstration at the Delta Air Lines terminal at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Wielding megaphones, placards, and leaflets, the activists educated the public about animal testing and Delta’s role in this cruel industry.

Delta Air Lines is in a strategic partnership with Air France-KLM, one of the last remaining airliners that continues to ship primates to animal testing laboratories. This partnership is considered one of the deepest in the industry and the agreements cover coordinated transatlantic operations in terms of ticket pricing, schedules, capacity, and revenue. With a relationship that runs this deep, Delta has an ethical obligation to put pressure on Air France-KLM to stop shipping animals to labs, which is exactly why they are a top priority of The Bunny Alliance.

The protest at the LAX lasted two hours, with hundreds of leaflets being distributed to Delta’s customers. Many of the customers were horrified by the fact that Delta involves itself in the transportation of animals to animal testing labs.

Join us at our next protest against Delta Air Lines on March 16th, 2014, at 5 PM at the LAX airport!

In solidarity,

The Bunny Alliance
