DC Protests at HLS Customers

01-08-2008 12:25

On Friday, July 18, animal rights advocates celebrated the decision by Raymond James to dump their HLS stock by protesting at the offices of Merck, Sanofi-Aventis, and Novartis, all of which have yet to follow Raymond James's sensible lead. What began as a normal day for the greedy opportunists at Merck, Novartis, and Sanofi Aventis turned into one that they would hope to forget. Compassionate individuals descended upon their offices, protesting their continued use of the animal abusers at Huntingdon Life Sciences. With signs and bullhorns, activists took to the streets.

What not to bring to climate camp.

01-08-2008 09:48

The filth are living up to their various names by being total dicks as usual and confiscating (stealing is probably more a accurate term) various items from people attending camp. You might of heard about the raid on the camp yesterday where police took away items such as board games and crayons, along with attempting to deprive the camp of essential materials such as plumbing and construction timber. However, even before the raid the filth were stealing stuff from those arriving.

Big Brothers latest gadgetry now in use at a ‘Fat Cat’ demo near you.

31-07-2008 18:23

A massive and violent insurection erupts in the City of London.
This morning while reporting the antics of some trots outside the Goldman Sachs building in the City of London; I noticed a strange protrusion on the hat of a cycle cop.

At first glance it looked like a trendy new device for holding a spare lipstick. On closer inspection a wire was spotted coming from the back of it. The copper in question was friendly enough and explained that the device had completed its trials and would be rolled out for general use within a couple of months. As well as the head cam there was a second one on his chest in case anyone tried to grab the more obvious one. It was activated by a switch and also stored the 30 seconds of footage prior to its activation.

If all the Police are due to be trained and issued with this gear, does that mean that a certain unit (known for their blue shouldered jackets) will soon be surplus to requirements? Well, if in a couple of months time you spot some familiar faces working as security guards in your local Tescos, you now know why…..
