HLS: MARKET MAKER OF THE WEEK
** HILL THOMPSON MAGID & CO.**
"We're proud of our involvement with HLS and the work they do. Without animal medical research, and the firms like HLS that conduct it, our society would be without many of the treatments that we take for granted today such as penicillin, the polio vaccine, and insulin for diabetes. The future of the world's health depends on animal medical research." -Frank Thomas, Stephens Inc.
Every week there is a week-long phone/e-mail blockade against one of HLS's investors. Some of these investors will be big companies and others will be private investors. We will target a new investor each week. We need EVERYONE to take a few minutes each day and let these investors know that by supporting HLS, they are supporting animal abuse and torture. Show them that WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE! Let's hit them where it hurts - their pockets!
HILL THOMPSON MAGID & CO. Holding 7,298 shares Hill Thompson is one of the five remaining market makers for HLS.

Please take the time to put your feelings and outrage into your own words, someone has to read these letters and emails. It would be much more effective if they read a variety of letters, not just a form letter.
I am writing to urge you to discontinue your investment with HuntingdonLife Sciences (HLS). Animals are sentient, living beings and should not be used for experimentation or anger relief for staff members. Since the publicity, I am certain you are now aware of the horrendous pain and suffering animals at Huntingdon endure. Tests which force the animals to consume toxic doses of various chemicals, inhale noxious fumes, and have caustic chemicals applied to their raw skin is horrendous. What is even more outlandish is documentation showing staff throwing beagle puppies against walls and punching them in the face. This is simply not good business. There are numerous companies discontinuing animal experimentation and instead, using computer simulations and the vast amount of previously accumulated data. You have the power and the ability to do something about the excruciating pain an annual 180,000 animals suffer. First, as an investor, you can demand they change their practices and you can demand the staff have psychological treatment. Second, you can cease your ownership of HLS stock and not invest in any other company practicing archaic and brutal animal research. I also encourage you to look beyond the bottom line when making future investments. Compassionate individuals, like yourself, with the gift of financial resources to invest can create long-term, far-reaching consequences toward a more benevolent world.
