OC AND LA ACTIVISTS JOIN FORCES AGAINST BECKMAN COULTER
Thursday, 5th July
On July 5th 2012 around 15 activists and one cowboy from Orange County and Los Angeles joined together in front of Beckman Coulter's World Headquarters to speak out for the animals that Beckman Coulter profits off of daily.
Upon arrival activists quickly learned that the camera man Mike LaDuca was on the scene. Mike is employed by BTV Associates, a security company that Beckman Coulter has hired to spy on young kids that love animals. The compassionate activists were not bothered by Beckman's goons because they know that they have every right to be out on the streets speaking out for the defenseless animals inside of HLS.
Activists held signs with images of the animals that HLS tortures and a banner that read, "Beckman Coulter, Animal Cruelty. Deal With Them, Deal With Us!". Chants were used to educate Beckman Coulter's employees about the 500 animals that die every day inside of HLS, as well as about the blood money that they are cashing in with each pay cheque.
At the end of the protest activists reminded Beckman Coulter that they will never give up on the 70,000 animals that are imprisoned inside of Huntingdon.
The day was not done for a small group of the activists and their new cowboy friend. The JW Marriott was next on their list for having part of the AACC Clinical Lab Expo at their hotel. At this lab expo Beckman will be in attendance.
Activists started the protest by marching up to the front doors and unraveling a banner. Activists were quickly asked to leave the property and of course they did because they always follow the law. The head of security, Bob, was very upset and annoyed by the activists presence at the Marriott. He yelled at the protesters and told them they would all be arrested for wearing black masks. Of course when the cops showed up, Bob was wrong.
During the protest around 50 people came down from the hotel to watch the activists, and the lone cowboy.
Activists protested for over an hour before calling it a day. When they left they told the Marriott one last time that as long as they deal with Beckman Coulter they will have to deal with the global movement to shut down Huntingdon Life Sciences!
UNTIL EVERY CAGE IS EMPTY AND HLS IS SHUT DOWN FOR GOOD!
