Huntingdon Life Sciences gets new market maker

...let's make sure it's not for long! Be rentless, be effective, be constant!

Huntingdon Life Sciences gets new market maker
Once again, after months of being without one, HLS has obtained market makers. Both companies have been contacted by SHAC, and both have stated they don't care that they are facilitating trades in a company that
kills 500 animals every day. Well...MAKE THEM CARE!!

In a similar situation last March, then market maker Spencer Edwards was Puppy Killer of the Week. This, coupled with activist visits to S.E.'s homes and offices, convinced the company to drop HLS after only a week.
Perhaps a repeat performance is in order!

[Note: Market Makers facilitate a company's quoting on a stock exchange. Because HLS rarely has one, they are rarely quoted on any board.]

Legacy Trading Co., LLC

Legacy appears to be a very small company with only one, and hence easily tied up, phone line. So we've included a home number, so you don't get bored!

CALLING TIPS:

Take advantage of pay phones! Especially with Toll Free Numbers!

Get a black fax to send here (or you can just use a black piece of paper and give your target's fax machine a run for its money...or ink!):

you will need acrobat reader to download this. get it for free here:

A great way to block the number that you are calling/faxing from is to dial *67 BEFORE you dial the number. Great for sending black faxes!
(Unfortunately doesn't work for 800 numbers)

Also...an idea suggested by one of our supporters:

I have discovered a toll-free and easy way to keep your targets' phone lines blocked up. Comedy Central Inc. has a new television show about prank phone calls, entitled Crank Yankers. On the Crank Yankers homepage (which can be accessed directly through www.comedycentral.com is a tool called 'Crank-A-Friend.' All you do is enter the target's phone number, name, e-mail address, and then your own name and e-mail address (which can just be made up for discretion). Within seconds, an irritatingly long phone call will arrive at the phone number you specified. It is free to use, legal, and you can drive HLS and their allies crazy with it, especially if done in unison.

EMAIL TIPS:

After a campaign starts against a partner company of HLS, e-mail accounts that are targeted by SHAC are being blocked. Here is a "work around" that some supporters will find helpful.

Go to the company Web site and use the "contact us" button. Use an asterik (shift + 8) to fill in the required fields . An asterik is a "wild card" and the computer form sees it as text. Type or paste message in the comment
area and send.

They won't block their company account because they need the business from the web. We can flood their customer e-mail and it's legal.

ALSO...

Some companies have put filters on their email systems that direct email with HLS related terms directly to the trash. Try taking out words like "HLS", "Huntingdon Life Sciences," "SHAC," "Animal Cruelty," etc.

For auto e-mailing, that uses encryption devices that masks who you are:

SHAC has proven itself to be one of the most effective activist organizations in the country. folks who want to keep resistance and protest "civil" and poo-poo direct action should be lookin' to y'all for some tips because what you do WORKS !! rock on !!

PUT THE PUPPY KILLERS OUT OF BUSINESS !!
