Protest by the Kudos Pharmaceuticals sign
HLS needs AstraZeneca, But AstraZeneca doesn't need HLS!
Activists were back at Kudos Pharmaceuticals which is a wholly owned subsidiary of AstraZeneca and is set for closure by the company.
AstraZeneca continues to deal with the most exposed animal lab in the world Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) who have been caught on camera punching puppies in the face and test products such as sweetener, GMOs and weed killer on animals.
2 campaigners have recently had a case dropped against them regarding a peaceful protest at Kudos last year meaning bail conditions were removed that prevented them returning to the site. Activists were in good spirits and our point was made loud and clear to AstraZeneca – drop HLS!
Protesters chanted via 2 megaphones and spoke about how disgruntled workers who are losing there jobs because of AstraZeneca's plans to shut the site can provide information to the campaign.
A banner was attached to the back of the building to remind AstraZeneca that while you continue dealing with HLS, you will continue to be the target of protesters.
Police arrived on the scene and we decided to leave. A police officer demanded that we did not film her and that we give her our details – both demands were declined. Police attempted to stalk the peaceful campaigners but were unsuccessful.
