Tuesday, 26th April

DC animal activists hit the streets again for early morning demonstrations at the offices of AstraZeneca, Bayer, Sanofi-Aventis and Nomura.

Showing up at 7:30 am at the AstraZeneca DC offices, activists sent a clear message to sleepy employees coming into work, that dealing with HLS, means getting an earful as they are coming into work, leaving work and even at home. The police arrived on the scene, but did not make any hostile actions against protesters. They asked if the bullhorns could be turned down, as office workers were complaining they could not concentrate with all of the noise! Since there are no laws in DC that supported this, DC activists continued the demos for another 30 minutes, with even more conviction to get the message to AstraZeneca to cancel their bloody contracts with HLS!

DC activists then moved on to Sanofi-Aventis for a reminder. Activists kept Sanofi-Aventis’ security on their toes by running to different entrances, and naming and shaming them for all to see and hear. Activists were able to distribute many fliers and gained a lot of public support!

The last stop of the day was Nomura, which is the top shareholder of Fortress Investment Group and also share directors with them. Activists again made it inside the Nomura lobby, but things started heating up after activists left. Security came barging out of the door at one activist and grabbed their bullhorns and slammed it to the ground, breaking it in half, after stomping an activist’s ankle. It seems that security is getting more and more frustrated with the protests and only increases activists resolve to close down HLS!
