FORTRESS SHAREHOLDER & FUNDER PROTESTS
Friday, 8th October
Demo 1 - Sankaty Advisors
Activists continue to protest at Fortress shareholders and funders. First stop of the day was Sankaty Advisors, Devonshire House, Mayfair Place, London, W1, who are the fourth largest shareholder of Fortress. Where we had a loud and visual demo against them supporting the funders of the puppy killers at HLS after an hour, we moved into the city itself.
Demo 2 - Bank of America
We continued our protests and named and shamed Bank of America at 100 Newgate Street/2 King Edwards Street for their continued financial support of Fortress and Bank of America are going to get more attention now that they are involved in helping to bail out Fortress themselves. Activists continued to make the whole BoA complex aware of the unethical investments in animal torture and were well received by the public during the lunchtime period.
Demo 3 & 4 - Nomura offices
Next, to moved over the road to Nomura at Nomura House, 1 St Martins le Grand, London, who are the largest shareholder/stockholder of Fortress and share some directors with them. We continued to highlight Nomura's involvement in helping to bank role HLS and the killing of 500 animals every single day, before moving on to their new flagship UK HQ offices at 1 Angel Lane between the Thames and Lower Thames Street. This is an ideal demo location, with lots of passing traffic and passers by and the building is made of glass, so Nomura can not hide away from the consequences of their unethical investments with Fortress the the deaths of over 600,000 animals over the past few years.
The images the the animals tortured and killed are disturbing to any normal, compassionate person and we call upon Nomura to make the right decision for those innocent animals that continue to be abused and killed with their money inside HLS, shame on you Nomura!
