PUPPY-KILLER OF THE WEEK: Focused Healthcare Partners (FHP) / Andrew Baker

One week ago, Monday, December 2, 2002, a hundred activists from the New York Coalition to Close HLS converged on Andrew Baker's doorstep in New York City. Rounding up a weekend of action in protest of HLS's 50th birthday, this was the first home visit Baker has received as part of the campaign to close Huntingdon Life Sciences. We can only speculate it won't be the last.
PUPPY-KILLER OF THE WEEK

Focused Healthcare Partners (FHP) / Andrew Baker


More and more individuals and organizations are learning about HLS and Andrew Baker, and they're gearing up to ensure HLS's 50th year will be it's last!

This week lay into Baker's company Focused Healthcare Partners like you've never done before. Andrew Baker is the cold heart and dark soul of HLS, acting at the lab's CEO and controller of nearly 40% of LSRI (HLS) shares. It's Baker's wheeling and dealing that has twice saved HLS from foreclosure...it's up to you to make sure he doesn't do it a third time!

==================================================
Baker is technically employed by FHP. HLS pays FHP to employ him and his "expertise" to act as HLS CEO and Chairman; Baker then takes his salary from FHP. FHP is the vehicle he uses to support HLS...that is, until we dismantle it.

WHAT IS THE PUPPY KILLER OF THE WEEK?

Every week a different company or individual associated with HLS is singled out to receive phone, email, and fax blockades from anti-HLS campaigners around the country. Many companies have severed their ties with HLS after being the Puppy Killer of the Week due to the sheer volume of calls, emails, and faxes from supporters calling, emailing, and faxing repeatedly. So forward this everywhere and play your part in closing HLS! If you'd like to do a disruption, demo, or other action against the Puppy Killer of the Week, go right ahead!

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: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html

**** 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 *asterisk* (shift + 8) to fill in the required fields . An *asterisk* 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: http://www.animaldefenseleague.com/cgi-bin/mail.html

Thank you so very much for posting this! You did a better job than I could have ever done. Eveyone needs to be flooding Andrew Baker with letters, visits, and fax's, and anything else anyone can think of. If Andrew Baker pulls out of HLS, HLS will close down. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!
SMASH HLS!!!!!!!

There is a huge poster covering the billboard on Rte 4 West right by their offices stating Andrew Baker is a puppy killer. Saw it while I was driving to work. I hope your efforts succeed.
