AZ Knock Out: Day 5, Friday - Phone blockade

SHAC | 31.08.2012 09:56 | 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. Without customers HLS couldn't stay in business. So get angry, fight back and take down AstraZeneca!


For day 5 we're going to finish off the week of action with another phone blockade - you can't beat 'em! In case you missed the phone blockade on day 2, the idea is that we all call them at the same time so they'll spend the entire day listening to 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. Every 3 minutes you spend on the phone will help to save them. Get dialling!

Today we're asking everyone to contact the first target, AstraZeneca's Global HQ, anytime between 10.30am-5pm. But we'll also be revealing some surprise targets to call later in the day too. We'll be calling these up until 11pm tonight. To find out who the next targets are you'll need to keep checking for updates. These will be posted on the event page on our website ( and put on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

AstraZeneca have been under a lot of pressure this week, so let's turn up the heat for the final day! There will be a lot of protests taking place globally today (and most will be taking an unhappy AZ by surprise!), so let's make sure they have the maximum effect. We're going to make sure that these companies can't hide from the activists by cowering in their offices - we'll be asking everyone to phone them while the demos are taking place. The staff who work at these companies are happy to earn a living from the suffering of animals inside the hell hole Huntingdon Life Sciences, don't let them get away with it!

Between demos, keep calling our first target; AstraZeneca's Global HQ until 5pm.


AZ Global HQ: 020 7304 5000 / 020 7604 8000
Freephone: 0800 032 0501
We're a little late releasing details of our first target, but we've received news that activists have just turned up at AZ's Global HQ in London! These numbers will be our main target throughout the day, but let's really focus the calls between 10.30-11.30am. AZ hate protesters turning up at this site, embarrassing them in front of their neighbours. Security here have even resorted to threatening peaceful activists and breaking their property - what do we do? We up our game and fight back even harder! Play your part and call the animal abusing thugs NOW!

More will be revealed soon, watch this space...
