Activist group, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), yesterday launched its national campaign against Bank of New York (BoNY) beneficiaries which invest in Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).
Six demonstrations took place in Peterborough, Gloucester, Essex, London, Manchester and Surrey.
The demonstrations follow a recent SHAC protest at Bank of New York’s London offices after a sympathiser leaked details of the company’s HLS investors.
An extensive amount of BoNY internal documents leaked by the SHAC sympathiser within the company have been published on a website, www.bankofnykills.com. These documents list codes granting access to confidential information on the accounts for BoNY clients such as Essex County Council, Somerset County Council, Thomas Cook, Peoples' Republic of China, Central Bank of China, Rothschild, Shell, Unilever, Eli Lilly, Arcadia Group and Diageo.
The documents also list BoNY staff names handling the different accounts and direct line telephone and fax numbers.
