Blood Money: Animal Rights Activists Target Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs has been targeted by animal rights groups Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) and Defenders of Animal Rights Today and Tomorrow (DARTT) for its affiliation with the British laboratory Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).


Goldman Sachs has filed an injunction against the groups stating that they participate “in loud and obnoxious demonstrations not only at the building that houses GS’s office in the District of Columbia, but also at the residence of plaintiff Michael Paese (head of government relations) and his neighbors.”


Paese says he’s been harassed at his home by SHAC demonstrators who blow bullhorns ‘right outside his front door’ and accuse him of earning ‘blood money’ and ‘torturing puppies.’ Paese says he’s a devoted dog owner and would never hurt an animal,” according to Courthouse News. 

The groups also target others who are affiliated with HLS, including Wachovia, the New York Stock Exchange and Novartis. 


HLS has been publicly exposed on numerous occasions by individuals from different organizations for the unspeakable sadistic cruelty inflicted on animals behind their closed doors that most of us couldn’t conjure up in our worst nightmares.

Bravo to those groups of animals right that harrassing this business, I would love to also join them. What ever these activist do to this man it's not enough and it's not worst than what this man and his business doing to helpless animals behind his closed doors. Lets not only shut the business also shut him down.

Our world society is confronted with seemingly endless examples of appalling cruelty. I am sure that just knowing such atrocities exist is harmful to everybody's well-being. What is urgently needed are worldwide values of love, tenderness and compassion. That is why, as well as to avoid the suffering of innocents, experimentation on animals should be replaced by more compassionate and thoughtful approaches to research, such as using tissue cultures, for just one example.

With the technology available today, all animal testing should be outlawed!! It's completely pointless.

There is no reason for animal research anymore. Human cell and tissue cultures provide much more accurate results, and are cruelty free.
