On Monday 9 March, there was a demo in Birmingham by the Birmingham Against AstraZeneca crew. Around 25 people over the course of the day joined the protest. This is the first demo against a Skanska office in the UK, Skanska are the builders of the Cambridge AstraZeneca global HQ and animal lab. AstraZeneca uses around 300,000 animals in pointless experiments each year; that’s over 800 animals every single day! 500 leaflets brought by the activists were distributed within the first hour and a half of the protest! Support from the public was overwhelming. Shut down the animal torturers-murderers!
Please do a demo against your local Skanska office, without Skanska no lab can be built. The animals need YOU!
