US Bank uncovered as Huntingdon Life Sciences largest ever lender

US Bank National Association, a subsidiary of US Bank, has been uncovered by SHAC as the largest ever lender ($120 million) to controversial animal testing laboratory, Huntingdon Life Sciences. (There are dozens of US Bank branches in the Portland area.)
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) have existed mainly on debt since 1998 and as a result of exposure and protest pressure have lost numerous shareholders, suppliers and customers over the years. Along with declining revenue and loss of orders from important customers as the global pharmaceutical industry make cutbacks, the future continues to be uncertain for the animal testing laboratory.

Please help kick off the campaign against US Bank by contacting the bank and voicing your outrage over its support of animal torture; demand that they end their relationship with the cruelty of Huntingdon Life Sciences.
