Friday, 15th June

On Friday, activists went to the City to embarrass the financial institutions that invest in vivisection at HLS: Axa, BlackRock and Legal and General. (Also the three of them listed in The Hall of Shame for investing in cluster munitions producers. (Read: http://www.campagnamine.org/worldwide-investments-in-clustermunitions-a-shared-responsibility.pdf).

Activists spoke for the thousands of victims of experimentation: cats, dogs, monkeys, rats, mice, frogs, sheep, pigs, rabbits and guinea pigs who are currently being abused and poisoned to death in the name of science at HLS with a loud protest outside Axa HQ at 5 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1AD, Tel: 020 7920 5900.

After one hour protesting we moved onto BlackRock, at Drapers Gardens,12 Throgmorton Avenue, London, EC2N 2DL, Tel: 020 7743 3000 and 0800 44 55 22, where their unscrupulous and apathetic employees, with no social values but making blood money, seem very proud of working for a company that invest in dirty industry, provided it makes record profits, no matter how many civilian lives have been taken and limbs long after a conflict has ended, no matter how much evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered at HLS, no matter how many thousands of patients are in hospitals with medicine related problems, no matter how many times AstraZeneca has been exposed for bribery and corruption.

To finish the day we went to Legal and General Investment Management at 1 Coleman Street, London EC2R 5AA Tel: 020 3124 3000 and 0800 027 7169, where we reminded their neighbouring companies with speeches and chants about their unethical investment in AstraZeneca. L&G staff don’t seem to object to the torture of innocent animals and murder of thousands of patients due to adverse side effects of drugs tested on animals, therefore we’ll continue to name and shame them until they sell their shares in AstraZeneca or put pressure in AstraZeneca to practice sophisticated non-animal research methods, which are more accurate, less expensive, and less time-consuming than animal-based research methods.

Deal with HLS, deal with SHAC!
