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.

'It was made and marketed to those who suffer from that uniquely American disease called CSD (compulsive shopping disorder)'. Just when you think amerika can't sink any lower, it never stops sliding down. To kill little innocent puppies for CSD wouldn't it be better to kill the ad Corps? Didn't they poison the 'minds of these consumers? Of all the buildings in all of Manhattan why did they hit yours Howard Solomon - CEO/ 160 East 72nd St./ New York, NY 10021/ (212)-988-0061

Why do white people hate everything, kill all the trees, kill animals for shit like this, and poison the water. These people will not stop till they destroy the world. Fight like your life depends on it, it does.

Thank you all for showing how Christmas is a time of giving, give it to them again. Excellent work, take back their belief in absolute control. You have asked long enough. "With reasonable man I reason with humane man I plead... " These are not reasonable people Capitalism is a worldwide war on all people and the planet. In the end it will destroy everything even itself. "... but with tyrants I will give no quarter."

Not one day of rest, resistance as a way of life. And save civil disobedience for a civil land. Getting captured by the enemy is stupid, Gitmo is not that sunny, but Havana ain't bad.

Be creative the world loves to laugh at the monster. There is not such thing as waste, only resource that has yet to be applied.

They don't care about people.
Dosen't matter if it kills you, as long as the profit is good.
This we already know.
But at the same time they can't seem to figure out why other countrys around the world hate the us.

Then they say that it is because of jealousy.
No!
It must because it sound good and it covers up the real reason.

Take some time and try not to upchuck, but listen in on some of their rant shows.
You will soon learn why they can lie so well.

They take everything that they are doing that is imoral and point the finger at us.
Kind of like when little steven broke the table lamp.
But when mom and dad get home, it was always someone else that did the deed.

Here it is.
Pathological liar.

They KNOW they are doing wrong and Trying 2 get away with it, but as we All Know The TRUTH WILL Prevail! I just thought of it: this Planet, our Earth is Pure and Right and and pretty well everything on it is Good for all. The forces of our senses - our spiritual sides - our 6th sense will Guide US - if we Try to live in compatibleness with the spirit of this earth doing what you can for all beings - also recycle - wear chemical free clothing, etc. etc.
YES, that is what this phrase means - take back our LIFE and then it'll occur like you 3 5 8 13 said = take back their belief in absolute control - so that we can LIVE the Way we were meant to LIVE!!
I agree we can't be reasonable to an inhumane person(they Just Don't Listen), but we Still R anyway whenever possible(anyone can Change)!
All of you folks are doing FANTASTIC WORK and I Hope one day I may meet you - 3 5 8 13!
All I am going to do is a few things which I think is The Most important and thats it. We Are Everywhere. Enough said... With YOU ALL in Spirit!!! Read the book called The Pianist. Its brutal, but you'll learn something!!
