Please post far and wide!! Calling all activists! Now is the time to get involved! SHAC (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) has been one of the top news stories of late. Under US Attorney General John Ashcroft, the “War on Terror” has become a war on the First Amendment! Now more than ever we need YOUR help to speak out against the ghastly practices of Huntingdon Life Sciences. It is time to show Ashcroft and the animal abusers of the world that we know our rights and we intend to use them! Weekend of action to SHUT DOWN HUNTINGDON LIFE SCIENCES! AUGUST 12- 15 2004 SAN FRANCISCO, CA Schedule: THURSDAY AUGUST 12 Teach-In Time: 7:30 pm Location: 522 Valencia @16th What is all this SHAC and HLS business I’ve been hearing about anyway? Get the scoop from local and national activists working on the campaign to shut down Huntingdon Life Sciences. Topics include: What is HLS and why target them? A brief history of the campaign to shut down HLS including undercover investigations, activism and security culture in the face of government repression, and what you can do!

FRIDAY AUGUST 13 Protest in San Francisco’s Financial District Time: 11:30 am Location: Justin Herman Plaza BART stop: Embarcadero HLS is in business for one reason and one reason alone: Money! Erase their profit margin and wave goodbye to HLS! Workers at HLS have been exposed in 5 undercover investigations committing egregious acts of animal abuse. Despite this knowledge a few companies still insist on financially supporting HLS. While these corporations may lack a conscience, they do know the language of economics. Join activists on a tour through San Francisco’s financial district as they spread the message to current and possible supporters of HLS: Doing business with HLS is one of the worst economic decisions a company can make! Vegan Potluck and Video Showing Time: 8 pm Location: 1884 Market Street @ Laguna Eat yummy vegan food, watch videos and get to know your fellow activists! Pleas email us at if you need suggestions on what to bring. SATURDAY AUGUST 14 Home Demos Time: Noon Location: 2300 16th Street, Safeway Plaza The animals at HLS don’t get to clock out and go home for the weekend; so neither should those who directly support HLS. It’s time to bring the message home: You can’t do business with HLS and get away with it! Join activists armed with banners, signs and leaflets as they caravan to several homes of Bay Area HLS supporters to tell them this urgent message. Please bring a car and a cell phone if you have one. Candlelight Vigil Time: 7:30 pm Location: same meeting point An estimated 9,270,000 animals have been murdered inside the walls of HLS since its doors opened in 1952. Currently, approximately 500 animals a day are needlessly killed and up to 70,000 animals are imprisoned inside HLS at any given time. Join activists for a candlelight vigil outside the home of a local Bay Area HLS supporter in remembrance of all the animals murdered and imprisoned at HLS.
