HLS CUSTOMERS HAVE DEMOS AT THEIR GLOBAL HQ OFFICES IN USA
Friday, 8th July
As always, a contingent of fourteen activists from FAUN pulled out all the stops & turned a rainy weekday into a florid exhibition of love/respect for our fellow animals, manifesting 1st at Pfizer World HQ, then Bristol Myers-Squibb U.S. HQ. Our focus was to alert the public to the horrible tests contracted to Huntingdon Life Sciences by these 2 despicable corporations and executed on innocent animals from hamsters to large primates.
Demo # 1: Pfizer World Headquarters
The demo at Pfizer was more subdued/centered on leafleting - & leaflet we did! Over 800 Pfizer-HLS leaflets disappeared into the hands of the public in a period of 2 hours, with the corporate devils of Pfizer glaring at us through the cold glass framing the building all the while.
Demo #2: Bristol-Myers Squibb World Headquarters
At Bristol Myers-Squibb, FAUN organizer Rob worked all of us up with a bold, candid, inspiring speak-out: "This could be YOUR dog! This IS YOUR housecat!" as he pointed at our more graphic signs. Soon the group was in full chant mode, all of us taking turns leading as rain blistered down on us.
One FAUN organizer stated: “Rain or shine.....it's always the right time to shame and expose animal abusers who masquerade as mild mannered corporate types. Pfizer, BMS.......how does it feel to have your dirty business aired to the public? You're welcome!”
GREAT DAY OF ACTIVISM!
