ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS STORM LAB INVESTORıS OFFICE (Atlanta) Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, the international pressure campaign dedicated to closing down animal testing lab Huntingdon Life Sciences, has just recieved word that activists from the Animal Defense League of Atlanta have forced their way into the offices of Stephen's Inc.

This is an unexpected move as the advertised demonstration against Stephens Inc, HLS's largest shareholder, is scheduled for Thurday afternoon. The demonstrators, in an announcement just received by SHAC, have stated they are to confront face to face those who are responsible for paying for 500 animals being tortured to death every day at HLS.

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is one of the worldıs biggest and most notorious contract animal testing labs. HLS tests agrochemical and pharmaceutical products on puppies, cats, monkeys, rabbits, and number of other animals killing roughly 180,000 a year. Activists internationally have committed themselves to shutting down HLS after 5 undercover investigations showed workers punching beagle puppies in the face, dissecting a conscious monkey, transplanting a frozen pigs heart into a baboon, falsifying scientific data, and violating procedures for animal welfare.

Stephens Inc. has become the center of attention for animal protection activists globally after the company made a controversial decision to save the failing laboratory, of whom they act as the biggest shareholder, from foreclosure three months ago. Across the country Stephenıs being being flooded in phone calls, emails, letters, and demonstrations.

According to an ADL Spokesperson, Stephens Inc. is responsible for the deaths of over 500 animals everyday, and we plan to make sure those working in the Atlanta office donıt forget it. Weıre just getting started with them!²

A SHAC spokesperson further noted, Stephens and other shareholders can expect a finanial and public relations nightmare for propping up that vile business, and we wonıt back off until HLS is finished!
