Animal rights protesters staged a protest outside the insitute HQ on Thursday, as AstraZeneca held its annual results conference

Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty held a demonstration at Chartered Accountants
Hall in a bid to force the pharmaceutical giant to stop using Huntington Life
Sciences.

The group of 14 , escorted by local police, displayed placards and shouted
through loudspeakers. The protest lasted about three hours, though police said
the event was without incident.

‘There was some noise coming from outside,’ said a spokesperson for
AstraZeneca. ‘But
animal rights issues are a problem faced by all pharmaceutical companies.’

SHAC have been campaigning against firms that contract Huntington Life
Sciences for many years, claiming the facility routinely mistreats animals.
