Portland HLS solidarity action at Bank of America

In solidarity with the international protest against HLS down in Little Rock, activists will be protesting Bank of America's support of HLS on Monday, 12-2 at 5th and Main BofA branch

Bank of America funnels its mutual fund money through Stephens Inc, which bailed out HLS (Huntingdon Life Sciences) when it was near bankruptcy. Concurrent protests will be taking place around the US, and in Europe.

Here in Portland, activists are organizing ongoing actions at local BofA branches to educate people at the local level, and put pressure on Bank of America to divest from HLS. This will be the 4th local action.
