Received from OH activists:
"Saturday, Forest Pharmaceuticals Christmas party was stormed by activists in Cincinnati (Howard Solomon, CEO, was in attendence). Multiple stink bombs, leaflets and personal security alarms were thrown by angry, screaming activists. The overwelming stench forced many to leave the party and go outside.
One female activist was arrested and harrassed by Forest employees, while others were assaulted on their way out. Even though there was one arrest, this is not finished, not even close.
Actions will escalate until Forest drops Huntingdon Life Sciences.
Merry Fucking Christmas - Puppy Killing Scum.
The latest from our friends at Forest Laboratories, a long time HLS customer, is a little drug called Celexa. It was made and marketed to those who suffer from that uniquely American disease called CSD (compulsive shopping disorder). Can't control the urge to buy another pair of shoes, jewelry, or household appliance - just pop one of these suckers and let the chemicals do their magic. Never mind the side effects - diarrhea, insomnia, and problems with sexual arousal - there are pills for all of those issues too!
The sad reality of this newest drug, besides the pathetic social commentary it passes on our culture, is that an untold number of otherwise healthy animals were tortured and killed for it. Celexa was tested on animals. The laws in this country required it. The suffering is rationalized away because of the benefit, saving all of us people totally justifies sacrificing innocent non-human animal life. Isn't curbing your selfish need to own a 20th pair of shoes the perfect justification for vivisection?
Human lives are not being saved by vivisection; in actuality, the reverse is happening. Every year, more and more people are dying of serious and debilitating diseases because companies like Forest Labs and Huntingdon Life Sciences are squandering needed money and resources on medieval science.
Perhaps, if we are lucky, these companies will stop pumping out drugs that pacify the public and come up with a pill that controls their inherent urges to lie, torture, kill, and profit off of the horrible crime that is vivisection.
Until that day - join SHAC in telling Forest exactly what you think of their "life-saving" research and sponsorship of TORTURE at Huntingdon Life Sciences.
