Recently, I received the news that Philippine Airlines had ceased shipping monkeys to labs, citing PETA's pressure as the number-one reason. I cried when I heard the news. I also cried for the monkeys who are still in cages, and I cried tears of joy for those who will remain in the jungle, grooming, foraging, and playing. It is a huge victory for PETA and, of course, for animals, but it was also a personal victory. I was a part of that pressure. I went to protests, signed online petitions, and passed out leaflets to strangers. I took action. On occasion, we may doubt the impact of our efforts, but trust me, we make a difference. I know. I speak from experience.
