DEMOS AGAINST ASTRAZENECA & SANOFI-AVENTIS CONTINUE IN FRANCE
Tuesday, 20th April
1st demonstration: AstraZeneca, 1 place Louis Renault 92500
Some activists of the Coalition Anti-Vivisection France gathered in front of the AstraZeneca and Sanofi-Aventis buildings in order to demonstrate within the context of the global campaign against Huntington Life Sciences : an infamous British & US laboratory where 500 animals are killed every day.

Leaflets were given out to people passing by, as well as guides to products which aren’t tested on animals.
We had placards denouncing the horrors that occur in HLS. Passersby could see the damage caused by animal testing.

A young boy, around 10 years old, was playing with his friends. When he passed by our placards, he made a horrible face, he was really shocked and said “Oh no !! It’s disgusting! Animals are nice, they don’t deserve it !!”.
Our question is : how can a 10 years old kid manage to understand the
Certainly the lure of profits…
