Vivisection Company Stopped On NY Stock Exchange

#1 Postby ronnie kray » Mon Sep 12, 2005 7:21 pm

a company that participates in animal experiments, Huntingdon Life Sciences was stopped from appearing on the New York Stock Exchange due to a campaign from some animal rights activists.

Here is an article about it.

Here is a news story (video)about it.

Did you catch the guy at about 7 mins into the video saying that the next thing to be attacked are the tobacco, alcohol, and firearms industries. His point was if they give in to the "extremists" now then there will be more problems. This is more Bush policy logic, of not dealing with the "terrorists" or as many may see them-the people that don't go along with the govt. I have yet to hear about this story from some of the political sites i frequent, but i'll keep an eye out.

The Huntingdon campaign has got a boost recently in the UK with the announced closure of another scummy company. The Newchurch guinea pig breeders run by the Hall family. There's been a string of closures now in the UK. Consort Beages (dog breeder), Hillgrove cats (cat breeders), Shamrock farm (monkey breeders-that was us Brighton bunches local victory KICK ARSE!!!), regal rabbits (I think that was it's name we moved to start doing them straight after Shamrock, then it closed as soon as we announced them as our new focus :D), now Newchurch, with the UK & US AR-movement working together on the Huntingdon problem they will close at some point (they would have already but for the UK government propping them up).
That's why "the powers that be" are getting so twitchy. It's one of the true, grassroots campaigns that's actually doing something, bit by bit we're chipping away at the fabric of the vivsection industry, one day (soon I hope) it'll be out of both the UK & US, then they'll suddenly find you can test products without using animals, once theirs no profit in it!

This news just brightened up my day which started off by seeing a truckloadn of hot, thirty dehydrated hungry and terrified chickens in a truck bound for their scalding alive fates. :cry:

HUntington sciences is one of the worst in the vivisection industry. The day that these scumbags close down will be a historic day indeed, and hopefully will have a devastating domino effect on the industry.

We should be investing our time and resources to find more modern, humane and relevant testing methods than archaic and ghastly animal tests!!! The existence of companies that test for safety without the use of animals proves that this is indeed possible - contrary to what the vivisectors want us to believe.
