Protest at James Cornelius' Home 3-7-2010

For the first ever ADB-NYC protest, the collective decided to go to James Cornelius' house. James Cornelius is the president and CEO of Bristol-Myers Squibb, a pharmaceutical company that's a major customer of Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Without the BMS contract, HLS would have to reconsider their way of doing business, or even shut their doors for good.

Activists wore blood splattered lab coats and surgical masks to draw attention to BMS' bloody dirty disgusting dealings with a CRO that's been caught punching beagle puppies in the face, cutting monkeys open alive without anesthetic, and choking, shaking and violently throwing animals into their cages.

Also, Huntingdon Life Sciences is notorious for faking lab results so their customers can push potentially dangerous drugs out on the market quicker.

It was a good first demo for Animals Deserve Better NYC, and there will be more to come.
