More Support For SHAC DemosTagged as: animal_liberation hls shac social_struggles vivisection
Friday, 13th March
We started today's London protests against TIAA-CREF at 33 Cavendish Square just off Oxford Circus. This equity fund has over 78,000 shares in torture of innocent animals inside Huntingdon Life Sciences and we were there louder than before to let them know that their investment in animal suffering would not be tolerated.
The announced start to the demonstrations was at NYSE Euronext on Dowgate Hill/Cousin Lane. No one needs to be told what a disgusting company this is, and we were there yet again telling them to dump HLS because they're a crap company (as mentioned by the managing director of Merryl Lynch!)
We had nearly 20 people for today's demos and because the NYSE injunction only allows 12, the other people demonstrated at Barclays on King Street at the same time, before being joined by the NYSE gang. This gave us a chance to hand out our new Barclays-specific leaflets.
We then moved on to Legg Mason on King Willian Street, who are the second biggest shareholder in the NYSE with 11 million shares. What a disgrace! We had enough people here again that a small group went to demonstrate outside the Barclays Capital offices in Royal Mint Court, before all meeting up again at Bank of New York Mellon in Queen Victoria Street.
BNY Mellon strangely sold most of their shares, but not all of them, and we're going to carry on campaigning against them until those remaining 27,000 shares are sold. AXA Investment Managers on Newgate Street was next on the list, and we shamed them again for buying 10,000 shares when they claim they were getting an ethical policy. Seems to be all talk with AXA as they keep acquiring HLS shares. 1 share is too much AXA - dump Huntingdon!
There was still time in the day for a demonstration outside the Barclays Capital office at Condor House next to St. Paul's Cathedral. We shamed this company in front of large crowds that always gather in this area. Many of the people were in students who were very interested and disgusted with Barclays being the largest investor (over 400,000 shares) in such a disgusting company. How many more lost customers for you Barclays? Is it really worth it??
A new record for SHAC London today: 8 demos! This is not going to stop for any of these companies until they no longer support the murderers of HLS.
