SHAC Demo Report, 30 May 08

NoVartis, No Vivisection! Demo Report

Novartis have two offices in Dublin. On Friday the 30th May, as part of the world week of action organized by SHAC, activists from ALiberation campaigned at both the Harcourt Rd office from 1pm to 2.40pm and their Clonskeagh office from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

In Harcourt Rd, once again people were informed about the cruelty that Novartis pay for when firstly they experiment on animals and secondly when they hire

Huntingdon Life Science to do this for them.

Again we received a good reaction from people on the street. A lot of who can’t understand why Novartis continue to pretend that vivisection is anything but a lie. Novatis cause casual cruelty so they can sell defective drugs and get away with it; they rob both money and lives in what they think is the perfect crime.

In 2006, Novartis used nearly 800,000 animals in animal experimentations but yet still produce and sell drugs that have lethal side affects to the very patients that these drugs were designed to help.

In Clonskeagh, the doors to their shared office were locked, as they were in Harcourt Rd. When we buzzed the reception on the intercom, we were told “I don’t think so, we know who you are”. Looks like the SHAC campaign is famous!

The office in Clonskeagh is in a business park. Every car parked in that business park and the adjoining car park received a leaflet under their wiper about Novartis and HLS. Every car or person coming in and out of the business park was informed about Novartis’s and HLS’s .secrets. Every car driving up and down by the park saw all about Novartis’s and HLS’s dirty laundry. Its dirty laundry we hung out especially for them and we’ll do so again until they clean up their act.
