Virtual Sit-in of HLS TOMMOROW: Tuesday, Feb. 27th, 2001, Starting at 9:30AM EST (All Day Long)

This coming Tuesday participate in a massive floodnet action with activists from around the world to bring down Huntingdon Life Sciences's web page. Activists participating in this electronic civil disobedience will learn on Tuesay morning the location of the webpage that will enable them to activate the floodnet program from their computers and will begin to send a barage of download requests over and over again effectively shutting down this mode of communication for HLS.

The Animal Liberation Internet Tactical Response Network has put together the action in support of the commitment made by the animal rights movement to see HLS shut down. Visit the AL-TIRN site http://floodnet.webjump.com for more information on how to use floodnet in preparation for Tuesday's action.

Huntingdon Life Sciences, one of the world's largest and most notorious animal testing centers, has been the subject of a relentless campaign after it was exposed in five undercover investigations showing horrific animal cruelty and sloppy fraudulent science. The investigations revealed workers maliciously punching beagle puppies in the face, dissecting a live monkey, transplanting a frozen pig heart into an otherwise healthy baboon thereby killing the animal, taking drugs and drinking at work, and falsifying scientific data, procedures, and animal welfare standards. Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty has convinced a large number of shareholders and customers of HLS into dropping their support of the company. The results have been all-time low worker morale, shattered customer confidence, and crisis level shareprices that almost lead HLS into foreclosure less than one month ago.

Keep visiting http://www.shac.net/ for more details of the upcoming action.

For this action to be a success a high-level of participation is needed. PLEASE circulate this action reminder to email lists and activists worldwide. Participating on this action and joining the international effort to close HLS means participating in making history. By closing HLS the movement will be doing more than simply saving 180,000 animals annually, we will be hammering a signficant nail into the coffin of the vivisection industry.
