Novartis Knock Down Day

Monday, October 27, 2008
6:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Event Type:
Location Details:
We go where they go until they drop HLS! No justice. Just us. Smash HLS!

Novartis Knock Down Day is a call for actions against Novartis on Monday, October 27th for being one of Huntingdon Life Sciences’ (HLS’s) largest customers. Without customers of Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) there simply would be no Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). The customers pay Huntingdon to test products and carry out research. If Huntingdon lost all their customers then they would have no income and be forced to close. There are only ten companies which give Huntingdon Life Sciences 45% of their income; these include Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, and Bristol-Myers Squibb. Monday, October 27th is Novartis’ day.

Deal with HLS. Deal with us.

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is one of the world's largest animal testing labs, operating two facilities in England and one the U.S. (East Millstone, New Jersey). Every day inside its walls, thousands of animals suffer and die in painful and unnecessary tests. Exposed in five undercover investigations since 1989, HLS has given the public a rare glimpse inside the vivisection industry. HLS employees have been exposed violently punching and shaking four-month-old beagle puppies, performing a necropsy (dissection) of a live monkey, transplanting a frozen pig's heart into a baboon, being drunk and taking drugs at work, falsifying scientific data, and breaking animal welfare laws. These investigations have resulted in HLS employees being convicted of animal cruelty, fined by the USDA and almost shut down by the UK government. The horrors witnessed inside HLS have given rise to one of the most successful anti-vivisection campaigns of the animal liberation movement to date.

On Monday, October 27th, bring friends, bring signs, bring fliers, bring resistance and pay a visit to your nearest Novartis office and home addresses. Spend your Monday with some sick, greedy, corporate scum. Do what you can to finish off HLS. Do what you can to fight for animal liberation. And do what you can to support the SHAC 7 (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty 7) and let them know that we have not forgotten about them.

Be young! Have fun! Smash HLS!
