SHAC Campaign Returning to Little Rock!
Activists literally shut down center-city Little Rock during a National demonstration at the Stephens Inc. headquarters October 29 and captured the attention of national media. Since this event we've seen activists all over the country return home with all the excitement, motivation and determination of Little Rock and stick it to Stephens on their home turf. We've also seen the successful start of a National Tour of Stephens Inc. offices.

But we're just as determined not to let Stephens in Little Rock get a rest. SHAC-USA will be joining together with local groups in Little Rock and all over the country for another national weekend of action January 13th and 14th. Don't miss this most important weekend!! We will be holding a number of events aimed at urging Stephens Inc. to follow the lead of the world's most significant financial institutions--Citibank, Merrill Lynch, HSBC, Royal Bank of Scotland, etc.--and sever all its ties with HLS.

Everyday 500 animals are tortured and killed inside of Huntingdon Life Sciences. These animals are depending on us to do all that we can to shut this vile lab down! There's no time to waste! SMASH HLS!!
