Animal rights activists in London paid a visit to HIG Capital Europe, who hold Amerijet as one of their key subsidiary companies in their portfolio.
Amerijet fly thousands of primates for vivisection each year and are a major player. They work on behalf of recently exposed Primate Products Inc and Worldwide Primates, whose owner served a prison sentence for his role in a primate smuggling ring.
Upon arrival at the shared offices, it was clear we were not expected. Doors were held open and megaphones were used to chant slogans, which could be heard throughout the hallways of the company. Staff from other businesses came down to see what was happening, only to return knowing about the sick monkey killing company in their midst.
As airlines across the world refuse to be involved in the transport of animals for laboratory experiments, it is only a matter of time before HIG Capital / Amerijet follow suite. This protest was held as part of the solidarity week for SHAC prisoners.
We will be returning with more protests at HIG Amerijet until they stop being involved in the systematic abuse of animals inside laboratories.
