Following on from the start of protests outside Fortress Investment Group management and their offices on Thursday and Friday this week, Fortress legal department ( firstname.lastname@example.org) have sent the following email to SHAC:
"Fortress confirms that the statements on Fortress letterhead, presented by security personnel to the protestors in London and in New York, were official Fortress communications. A copy is attached to this email. Fortress will not be making any further statements on this matter as the statement speaks for itself."
Well done to everyone who contacted Fortress or went on the protests in New York and London. The Fortress statement follows on the heels of BDO's statement last week, both these companies where involved in propping up HLS with their blood money. SHAC and animal rights campaigns all over the world will continue to put pressure on any financial institution that help HLS continue to torture and kill 500 animals every day in their labs.
SHAC will continue to track down companies that collaborate with HLS/LSR. Please remember that HLS customers are important to the future of HLS, No customers = No HLS and we will continue to put pressure on them, see the following page for more details: http://www.shac.net/action/top_targets/toptargets.html
