Friday, 30th September

Today, compassionate activists from Portland Animal Defense League participated in the SHAC Global Day of Action Against Astrazeneca (AZ) by focusing their anger on the Portland branch office of AXA, AstraZeneca's third largest shareholder.

Just before employees were going for their lunch break, activists entered AXA Advisor's offices at 1 SW Columbia St # 1550, ready to name and shame AXA and their cruel investments in AZ and HLS, activists walked straight past security and took a trip up to the 15th floor to AXA's offices. Upon entering their main office, air horns started blaring while flyers were given out up and down their hallways. Activists chanted "CUT YOUR TIES WITH ASTRAZENECA, CUT YOUR TIES WITH HLS!" One by one, AXA employees poured out of their offices to see what all the commotion was about.

This is the third time in the past couple of months Portland's AXA office has been named and shamed for their cruel investments in Astrazeneca. This action represents an escalation for activists in the area and a notice that as long as AXA continues to enable AstraZeneca with funding horrific experiments inside HLS, it will remain a priority target.

Today's action was held in solidarity with activists across the globe dedicated to shutting HLS down for good. We are with you for as long as it takes.

Until All Are Free.
