Thursday, 20th January

What better way to start the day then fighting to close that hell-hole called Huntindon Life Sciences (HLS) and doing demos outside two of the main shareholders of the vicious and corrupted pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, who funds barbaric and useless experiments at HLS.

We visited first Axa Investment Manager’s office at 7 Newgate Street. London EC1A 7NX. Tel: +44 (0)20 7330 6619, were we had a loud demo using 4 megaphones to make sure everybody could listen to us naming and shaming Axa for investing in animal torture at HLS killing 500 beautiful, intelligent and sentient animals every day while being awarded the Affinity Marketing Award for the RSPCA Pet Insurance product (http://www.axa.co.uk/media-centre/media-releases/news-story?id=20100713_0800)

Then we went to Axa's UK HQ at 5 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1AD Tel: +44 (0)20 7920 5900 where we passed our message to Axa and its neighbors about what Axa invest in. We wonder why Axa don’t mention anything on their web site regarding their shareholding with the false and unreliable pharmaceutical company AZ who are being investigated by the EEUU government for paying bribes to increase their sales to foreign countries: http://www.pharmatimes.com/Article/10-10-06/US_govt_probes_overseas_bribes_by_pharma_-_WSJ.aspx
Well done Axa, we wonder why you are not 'proud' of your unethical investment and miss this link on your web site?

After a break we went to BlackRock's offices at 33 King William Street, London EC4R 9AS Tel: +44 (0)20 7743 2191. BlackRock is the largest equity shareholders of AstraZeneca (160 million shares between different funds). We named and shamed them for investing in AZ, who help to keep HLS open, and recently has “hooked up with Cancer Research UK's Drug Development Office (DDO) under a strategic alliance designed to test different combinations of its experimental cancer drugs in early clinical trials.” (http://www.pharmatimes.com/Article/11-01-13/AZ_and_CR_UK_link_to_test_new_cancer_combos.aspx). Az, are you sure you want to help to the cancer patients…? Are you really sure you want to cure that illness? We don’t think you want to cure any illness; if cancer was cured thousands of people with very good salaries will have no job. AZ, all you want is to sell long-term treatments that will never cure cancer or any illness, but instead will give you huge profits.

AstraZeneca, your best selling drugs are about not curing people, they have to continue taking them for the rest of their lives, so you can continue your profit and greed. When will you put the animals you torture and the humans you make ill first? Your lies can not last forever... And anyone that invests in this moral crime will get their comeuppance.
