180,000 reasons to care...

Each year at HLS, 180,000 animals are forced to ingest, inhale and endure all manner of toxic chemicals. Animals are restrained and forced to consume toxic doses of pharmaceuticals, pesticides or industrial chemicals such as weed killers and disinfectants. Some animals are placed in inhalation chambers where they are choked by noxious fumes; others have caustic chemicals applied to their shaved, raw skin. At the end of these excruciatingly painful procedures, some of which last up to a year, the surviving animals are killed and their bodies are dissected for analysis. For the animals, HLS is a living hell.

Ater a very successful national week of action against Stephens; we need to keep the momentum going!

April 26th:
Three ADL Activists Storm Stephens Office in Atlanta Twleve Activists Occupy the Stephens Office in San Fransico Three Activists Lock Down in the Stephens Office in Boston

April 27th:
Two SHAC Activists Occupy the Chicago Branch of Stephens Two Activists Cause a Major Disruption in NYC's Stephens Building

It is more important, now than ever, that we target those that invest their money into these animal abusers. There is the recent pull out of the investor, Charles Schwab-which held over 5 million shares of HLS stock. British Biotech ended their business with HLS. Winterflood securites and Kleinworth Dresdner Wassersteinand, who were HLS's only remaining market maker, ended ties. Merrill Lynch, TD Waterhouse, Merck, and Citibank all severed their link with HLS. HLS stock price falls and falls, and they are off the New Stock Exchange.

And just this past week: Hargreaves Lansdown in Bristol decided that "with immediate effect we will no longer be providing a dealing service in Huntingdon Life shares". Hargreaves Lansdown held 585,781 shares in HLS.And the following day, DLJdirect sent out a letter to the clients informing them that they would are no longer "able to offer an execution-only dealing service in Huntingdon Life Sciences shares. Unfortunately we have been forced to make this decision following the withdrawal of the last market-maker in this stock."

Every week there will be a week-long phone/e-mail blockade against one of HLS investors. Some of these investors will be big companies and others will be private investors. We will target a new investor each week. We need EVERYONE to take a few minutes each day and let these investors know that by supporting HLS, they are supporting animal abuse and torture.


Let's hit them where it hurt-their pockets!

SAMPLE LETTER: I am writing to express my strong disapproval of your continued financial involvement with Huntingdon Life Sciences.

They are solely responsible for the deaths 180,000 beagles, monkeys, rabbits, mice, rats and other animals evry year in the name of "science" and profit. HLS has been exposed numerous times through undercover investigations and video abusing innocent animals.
