Portland Financial Focus Week of Action Schedule

Keeping up the pressure on the vital financial targets, this week of action is for all companies linked to HLS financially - from Fortress to their subsidiary companies and more.

More info on HLS: http://www.shac.net

Who is Fortress?
In 2006 the Fortress Investment Group entered into a "secret" arrangement with Huntingdon Life Sciences, and loaned them $70 million. If Fortress had not loaned them $70m, HLS would have closed in 2006. If they were to withdraw their loan now, it is highly likely HLS would be forced to close. If ever there was a time for action, it is now. If ever there was a vital target it is Fortress.

Portland Targets

Recently, Fortress bought out both American General Financial Services (AG) and CW Financial Services, making these companies subsidiaries of Fortress Investment Group.

Every dollar of profit they make is money that belongs to Fortress. It is the money that Fortress used to loan HLS. It is the money that HLS uses to conduct its horrendous business of animal exploitation. It is blood money, pure and simple. We must stop it where it starts.

It starts with companies like AG and CW Financial Services. Their complicity must end.
