US BANK UNCOVERED AS HUNTINGDON LIFE SCIENCES LARGEST EVER LENDER

US Bank National Association, a subsidiary of US Bank Corp. has been uncovered
by SHAC as the largest ever lender ($120 million) to controversial animal
testing laboratory, Huntingdon Life Sciences (HL.

HLS have existed mainly on debt since 1998 and through campaigning lost their
market-makers, shareholders, suppliers and customers over the years. Along
with declining revenue and loss of orders from important customers as the
global pharmaceutical industry make cutbacks, staff redundancies, the future
continues to be uncertain for the multiple exposed animal testing laboratory
as well as recent UK staff layoffs in 2012.

Please help us kick off our campaign against US Bank by sending polite letters
informing them of what they are involved with at HLS.

campaign, please visit: www.shac.net/action/US_Bank/index.html

EXAMPLE LETTER
================

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to you because US Bank National Association, a subsidiary of US
Bank Corp has loaned Huntingdon_Life_Sciences (H_L_ $120 million. Without
this loan H-L-S could not remain open and therefore US Bank are in large part
responsible for the continuing cruel and violent actions going on inside H-L-
S.

H_L_S have a long history of violence; they were most famously exposed in 1997
when channel 4 TV filmed workers punching beagle puppies in the face. In 2005
ex-workers spoke out about cruelty they had witnessed and in 2008 Animal
Defenders International went undercover inside H-L-S exposing cruel primate
experiments and disgusting conditions. H_L_S also have a track record of law
breaking and manipulation of data. During just one known primate study, H_L_S
broke the law over 500 times; and workers have been caught taking drugs and
drinking on site.

Video footage, images and testimonials of this cruelty and misconduct can all
be seen at the following link: http://www.shac.net/HLS/exposed.html

There are many hundreds of companies including NatWest, Royal Bank of
Scotland, HSBC, Citibank, Bank of New York, Merrill Lynch, Charles Schwab,
Barclays Plc, Stephens Inc. and Fortress Investment Inc. that have stopped
dealing with H-L-S because of our highlighting H-L-S' track record of cruelty
and sloppy work practices, which in the past have also included the
falsification of scientific data, leading to protests.
(http://www.shac.net/SHAC/victories.html)

I am urging you to explore all get out clauses in this loan and reel it in. I
also urge you to raise these issues with everyone you can within the company
and do everything in your power to halt your support of
Huntingdon_Life_Sciences cruel practices.

Please raise this issue at any meetings you attend, and let all your
colleagues know about H-L-S.

For further information, please visit: www.shac.net

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact SHAC;
either by letter to SHAC, BM SHAC, London, WC1N 3XX, UK, or via email to:
usbankcruelty@shac.net. Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully   [your name]
