AZ KNOCK OUT: Day 3, Wednesday - Email Blockade

SHAC | 29.08.2012 07:37 | SHAC | Animal Liberation

Huntingdon Life Sciences is Europe's largest and most exposed animal testing laboratory. They kill 500 animals every day. AstraZeneca is one of HLS' top customers and pays them to torture animals in cruel and unnecessary experiments.


For day 3 we're doing an even easier kind of blockade to follow on from the phone blockade yesterday. This time it's all about emails! The idea is that we all email them at the same time so they'll spend the entire day reading through messages from us reminding them about the animals they're killing. Scummy companies that profit from animal abuse only care about money, so they're not going to be happy when their staff have to spend the day dealing with outraged activists rather than working.

Every 3 minutes another animal is tortured to death inside HLS. How many emails can the murderers receive every 3 minutes? Get typing and find out!

Today we're asking everyone to contact AstraZeneca anytime between 9am-5pm. But we'll also be revealing some surprise targets to email later in the day too. To find out who you'll need to keep checking for updates. These will be put up on the event page on our website, our Facebook and Twitter (see links below) pages and emailed out on our mailing list (

An event page has been set up on Facebook for you all to share your comments and updates on the action. Join in!

Visit our website to learn more about HLS, AstraZeneca and the SHAC campaign.


Note - AZ will probably set up email filters, so if your messages don't go through try rewording them. Certain words like 'HLS', 'murder' etc could be blocked. So be inventive! For example, instead of 'HLS' try 'H_LS' or 'H..L-S', or just email a photo of a lab animal. If all else fails, maybe you could even send AZ some nice emails telling them about something interesting you read in the news etc. We're sure they'd appreciate a pile of unrelated emails to distract them from their other pile of emails ;),

All the email addresses below have been formatted into blocks that can easily be copied into the "To" field of your email - it couldn't be easier to tell the animal abusers to drop HLS!
