Help close puppy killers HLS with an ECD
29 Jan 2004
Every monday of the month.... join the ECD against HLS...
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is one of the world's largest animal testing labs, operating two facilities in England and one the U.S. (East Millstone, NJ). Every day inside its walls, thousands of animals suffer and die in painful and unnecessary tests. Exposed in five undercover investigations since 1989, HLS has given the public a rare glimpse inside the vivisection industry. The horrors witnessed inside HLS have given rise to one of the most successful anti-vivisection campaigns in the history of the animals rights movement.

It’s that time of the month again!

Is your computer cramped up? Are you experiencing a heavy flow of email?

Then chances are you have just been hit by the ‘Huntingdon Sucks’ ECD (Electronic Civil Disobedience)! Every month, like biological clockwork, a customer of HLS can expect that gut wrenching pain that comes from doing business with such a bloody lab.

The ECD has been amazing tool in the international campaign to shut down HLS. Several websites have been shut down, and countless email inboxes have been filled with literally thousands of emails. In today’s technological age computer systems are the real front doors to companies. So instead of chaining ourselves together in the physical doorways of businesses we can achieve the same effect from the comfort our armchairs.

These are important actions and can only work if lots of people make the commitment to participate. The effect we can all have if we collectively pool together is amazing and we have demonstrated this before. So go on, show your compassion with every click of the mouse. Smashing HLS has never been so easy. Period!

Who's the target?

Well, we don't know. But we're sure its going to be good. The anonymous people who bring the ECD keep it a secret (and for good reason) until the last minute. This way the target will be unprepared, and we can be sucessful. In the past the ECD has targeted customers, shareholders, and even Huntingdon. Along with the rest of the campaign - if you're associated with Huntingdon, you're a target!

How do I join in?

Every first Monday of the month, you can check in here to find the online location of the ECD. SHAC USA does not manage, direct, control, or is given any foreknowledge of what the action will be, but simply reposts the information sent to us.

Be safe - keep changing it around!

As stated before, SHAC USA does not know who is responsible for setting up the ECD and reminds people that participating in an ECD can sometimes be deemed illegal (hence the terms civil disobedience) and there can be repercussions.

Just because HLS's monthly enemy is on the doorstep, doesn't mean you have lock yourself inside! Head out to your local internet cafe, pick up a soy hot chocolate and enjoy yourself. Go down to the local library, or other places with free (and anonymous) computer stations.
