reported by activists in Spain:

"During the morning of Saturday the 29th of September several groups of activists acted in 6 cities against the multinational pharmaceutical company Novartis. This company is directly tied to the animal experimentation laboratory Huntingdon Life Sciences, in which premises it has been recorded with hidden camera how vivisectors cut open still conscious monkeys without anesthesia and punched puppies in the face.

Novartis knows perfectly what is happening there but refuses to cut its ties. For that reason we have been forced to try new methods. 41 tubes of Voltaren have been contaminated with acid. We have gone to 6 different cities, bought in chemists shops Voltaren tubes and after leaving the shops we returned saying that we didnt need them, but this time giving them the polluted tubes. There's no difference between the contaminated ones from the original ones so if we were Novartis we would change every tube of Voltarem.

We want to warn this multinational to cut its ties with HLS or we will repeat the action again and again. The acid that we have used can only make small burns in the skin, but it can harm seriously the multinational.

Next time we won't warn about the sabotage.

GlaxoSmithKline could be next, so we send them the same message. And to all the consumers we want to say that on behalf of the animals we warn them not to buy products of these two companies while they keep working with HLS because they are going to be a target of our actions again and again. The customers are not our target, just these two companies, but because they don't care at all about what's going on inside HLS with animals, they are only concerned about money, we are forced to take these actions.
