Put Pressure on DHL and ABX Air: Announcements and Upcoming Protests

ABX Air, a cargo company based out of Ohio, is the main airline transporting primates into the U.S. to be used in lab experiments for companies such as SNBL, Charles Rivers Laboratories, Covance, and others.

 DHL is ABX Air’s largest customer (providing over 50% of their business), and so the Gateway to Hell network is demanding that DHL use the influence that it has with ABX Air to stop the primate shipments. Gateway to Hell is calling for an immediate escalation of the campaign against DHL to hold them accountable for ABX Air’s actions and stop ABX Air from accepting any future shipments of primates.

DHL is a global company, just as Gateway to Hell is a global activist network, so DHL can expect global opposition for as long as they remain complicit in ABX Air’s facilitation of the torture of animals in labs.

As part of Primate Liberation Week, October 11th-19th, activists all over the world are organizing demonstrations against ABX Air and DHL, as well as Air France/Delta and laboratories that experiment on primates. Below is a list of upcoming demonstrations in the U.S. that you can attend, and we are calling on all of our supporters to organize a protest in your city!

Here is what you can do:
1. Find a DHL Express office or DHL Authorized Shipping Center near you. This includes many franchise mail box and shipping centers that can be found in nearly every city.
2. Print out literature to hand out to the public and to DHL and shipping center employees. Leaflets about DHL and ABX can be downloaded by clicking here or going to thebunnyallince.com
3. Print out signs or make your own signs with poster board and a marker.You can download signs about DHL and ABX by clicking here or going to thebunnyalliance.com
4. Get some friends and local activists together to go to the DHL location near you and have a protest!
5. Be sure to let us know about your protest so that we can help advertise it. Email us at thebunnyalliance@riseup.net
6. Take pictures of the event. Send us the photos and a short description of the event so that we can post it on our website and on  GatewaytoHell.net for DHL and ABX Air to see how many people are speaking out about primate transports.

If you need any help organizing a protest, finding a DHL location near you, or getting signs and leaflets, please contact us at thebunnyalliance@riseup.net. We are more than happy to help!
