Organizer/AuthorARDAC
Every day, 500 animals enter the doors of the notorious animal testing laboratory Huntingdon Life Sciences. None of them will leave alive. Speak out for the 180,000 animals killed every year at the laboratory! Join Animal Rights Direct Action Coalition-San Francisco to protest against State Street Corporation! State Street owns nearly 15 million shares in the laboratory. It is State Street's money that helps keep the doors to HLS open! WHEN: Friday, November 16, 11 am WHERE: State Street Offices in San Francisco (One Market Street-near Justin Herman Plaza) CONTACT: ARDAC-(415)364-3053 Signs and leaflets will be provided. Background: Huntingdon Life Sciences is an animal testing firm with laboratories in the UK and New Jersey. The laboratory has been exposed five times since 1997 in undercover investigations punching beagle puppies in the face, dissecting a live monkey, abusing animals undergoing painful, invasive procedures, falsifying scientific data, and violating numerous animal welfare regulations. The laboratory was nearly shutdown by the UK government because of violations. Since the laboratory has been exposed, customers and investors have withdrawn all financial support. Yet companies like State Street have continued to pump money into this laboratory, which tortures, mutilates, and kills monkeys, cats, dogs, rats, rabbits, and other animals on a daily basis. Animal activists have successfully campaigned against countless investors who have since withdrawn financial support from the lab. We can do the same with State Street with your help!
