Protesters were back at KuDOS Pharmaceuticals (410 Cambridge Science Park, Milton Road, Cambridge, CB4 0PE) in support of SHAC's AstraZeneca Day of Action. Kudos is own by AstraZeneca a top customer of the most exposed animal lab in the world Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Campaigners also took the time to highlight the recent case of AstraZeneca withholding info about adverse side effects of their anti-depressant Seroquel.

The protesters were joined by a photographer from the local paper. We will use all tools at our disposal to expose HLS and its supporters, take note AstraZeneca!

The police arrived and seemed OK at first later however they showed there true colours! 1212 Jon Capes told two activists that they were to be reported for a summons for 'aggravated trespass'. Then Capes bullied at elderly lady for her details claiming she had committed 'anti-social behaviour' by politely expressing her views on the megaphone. Earlier in the protest she asked 2337 Mark Deal if what she was doing on the megaphone was OK to which he replied it was. Deal was also with the protest for a extended time and made no objections throughout!

Campaigners are ready for a long fight. There is now a site dedicated to the campaign against KuDOs. Have a look:

We have also identified two companies that supply KuDOS, they are Home Delivery Network and Quality Care Cleaning Limited. We hope supporters will take the time to contact them and ask them not to deal with KuDOs until AstraZeneca drops HLS!
