August 8, 2001 – Band-Aid


Thank-you for your help, those letters, e-mails, and phone calls have paid off. The pressure was put on Northwest Airlines and the Airline Industry as a whole. Northwest has postponed its deadline for halting mail shipments of baby chickens until September First.
Mary Beth Schubert spokeswoman for Northwest Airlines said “Northwest Airlines is working with the Air Transport Association to develop an industry-wide agreement with the U.S. Postal Service for the transportation of live poultry as U.S. mail”.
We are guardedly optimistic that this will result in guidelines that will be to the benefit of everyone involved.
Now we need to keep pressure on Washington to pass legislation which will give the U.S. Postal Service the power to force all contracted mail carriers to carry all of the mail and not allow them to pick and choose.
We have changed our website e-mail campaign to a U.S. mail campaign. You can go to our website and print out letters for your senators and representative, over 600 have done so in the last few days.
You should all pat yourself on the back for the great work you have done to this point.
The American way is alive and working for all of us.
We will keep you posted as things develop.
