JOIN US FOR A PROTEST AT THE HOME OF HLS CHIEF PUPPY KILLER ANDREW BAKER

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is one of the world's largest product testing labs. HLS test agrochemicals (such as pesticides, weed-killers, herbicides, fungicides, etc.), household products (detergent, oven cleaner, sugar substitutes, etc.), some pharmaceutical products (notables include diet pills, Viagra, and Baycol - an anti-cholesterol drug that went on to kill 180 people), and highly controversial Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's). Approximately 500 animals die every day in these tests. HLS uses every animal from rats and mice, to dogs, cats and rabbits, to primates and farm animals.

HLS is a CRO, or Contract Research Organization. As such, it does not conduct research and development, meaning it does not create its own products and does not search for cures for diseases. Rather, HLS is contracted by other companies to conduct toxicity testing for *their* products. These tests essentially consist of forcing a product into an animal's stomach, lungs, or onto his/her skin for weeks or months on end, then killing the animal and dissecting him/her.

In addition to HLS's daily job described above, the lab has been exposed in 5 undercover investigations since 1989, revealing horrendous animal cruelty and sloppy, fraudulent sciences. HLS workers were filmed punching four-month-old beagle puppies in the face, dissecting a live monkey, and falsifying their own research reports.

Join us for an afternoon of protests starting at the home of the CEO and largest personal investor in LSRI (HLS), Andrew Baker. From there we will visit some of HLS' most important customers.
