National Week of Action Against US Bank
Every three minutes an animal dies inside Huntingdon Life Sciences, averaging 500 every single day. US Bank makes it possible. During the week of April 22-29, join the National Week of Action Against US Bank!
US Bank National Association, a subsidiary of US Bank Corp. has been uncovered by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) as the largest ever lender ($120 million) to controversial animal testing laboratory, Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).
HLS is one of the largest contract-testing laboratories in the world. They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments, which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colorings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms.
HLS have existed mainly on debt since 1998 and through campaigning lost their market-makers, shareholders, suppliers and customers over the years. Declining revenue, staff layoffs, and loss of orders from important customers as the global pharmaceutical industry make cutbacks means an uncertain future for HLS. Now US Bank has made the poor decision to attempt to keep HLS afloat in the midst of economic uncertainty and international opposition.
Join the international movement against HLS by participating in the National Week of Action Against US Bank.
