STAFF RUN FROM ACTIVISTS AT AZ'S FRENCH HQ

Friday, 31st August

A dozen activists protested in front of AstraZeneca's French head offices (1 place Louis Renault, 92500 Rueil Malmaison), just west of Paris during the global week of action against this shameful company. AstraZeneca is a major customer of Huntingdon Life Sciences, Europe's largest animal testing laboratory.

As usual the staff ran inside the building at the beginning of the demo. Activists chanted at the doors and held speeches about how horrific animal testing is and about the lack of justification for animal experiments.

Passers-by were disgusted to hear about the pharmaceutical company's role in the torture and death of animals. Leaflets, posters and banners made things clear about why we were there and what we wanted. We want AstraZeneca to dump HLS and use their power as one of the leading pharmaceutical companies to promote non-animal testing experiments. Until then, we'll keep demonstrating at the doors of their offices.
