HLS Customer of the Week: Chiron Corporation

Chiron Corporation is one of HLS's most notorious customers, infamous for some of the most horrifying entries in Michelle Rokke's diary. For months Chiron has come under attack with protests, phone and email blockades, direct action, and other nighttime nuisances. This past week the activity was taken up a notch with two explosions outside the Chiron headquarters. (Read all about it at  http://www.SHACAmerica.net).
The real terrorists have blood on their hands.
The real terrorists have blood on their hands.
This week, give Chiron a call - or two or three; drop em a line, a paragraph, or a page; fax 'em your thoughts - or dust off your black faxes. Make your outrage clear to Chiron and demand they VOW NEVER TO CONTRACT AT HUNTINGDON AGAIN!

"Irene gasped when she saw blood spurting from [the primate's] back and said "Oh, it's so inected if must have burst open just from the pressure of being held on the cage." As I held the primate suspended on the cage door, she pressed on the wound and bloody pus spurted out and dripped all over the floor. The monkey winced and jumped each time she pressed on it. Brian asked Terry to come and look at it. When she saw it she just sad "Yeah?" [Like what do you want me to do about it]. He asked her if we should still dose her and she said, "Yes, go ahead." The primate jumped and winced each time Irene injected her back. When she got to the infected site she warned me to hold on tightly because she would jump - it would hurt her. She was right. The primate jumped violently when the needle entered the sore, infected area."

-Michelle Rokke, undercover investigator observing a Chiron experiment at HLS, New Jersey

Comments like this are incriminating and no good. You are assuming that they where behind the Chiron bombing. There are obviously police on this forum, so watch what you say. Since this comment was made it is clear that they knew nothing about the blast from recent press articles. People are innocent until proven guilty, so keep all speculation to yourself.

Word.
