Huntingdon Life Science's top customer is AstraZeneca.
The animals imprisoned inside HLS need us to fight for them - don't let AZ get away with murder at the world's most exposed animal testing lab.
AstraZeneca are a major current customer and vocal supporter of HLS' cruel methods of animal torture and scientific fraud. Over the past few years Astra Zeneca have suffered huge layoffs and recently experienced even more financial and legal problems. ASTRA ZENECA stop testing on animals!
In response to Animal Defenders International's expose from 2008 AstraZeneca had the audacity to state that no suffering occurs at HLS - this is lies.

During the time of the expose, AZ were funding experiments on primates at Huntingdon. Not only did the breeding farm in Vietnam who supplied the poor animals not meet basic UK animal welfare standards, but the conditions of the animals when housed inside the lab were horrific; some monkeys were missing limbs, had skin problems or other infections. The monkeys also routinely escaped from their cages, resulting in some being raped and attacked. Read more here:
Targets: AstraZeneca, their subsidiaries and shareholders.

If there aren't any AstraZeneca offices or sites near you, why not protest at another HLS top customer in your area? Remind them that they'll be a target until they stop funding barbaric experiments at HLS. For more info, see:

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) are the largest contract testing laboratory in Europe. They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea-pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments.

HLS will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colourings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms. Every three minutes an animal dies inside Huntingdon totaling 500 innocent lives every single day.

Huntingdon Life Sciences is the most exposed laboratory in the world. In recent years they have been infiltrated and exposed at least seven separate times for disgusting animal cruelty and rule breaking. Each time horrific evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered, including workers punching beagle puppies in the face.
