    Dear Supporters

    Please take the time to email Nomura about their dealings with Fortress
    Investment Group and HLS. Email alerts can be very effective if many people do
    them. Thank you for your continued support. Until all are free.


    Turner Investment Group are the largest shareholder of Fortress Investment
    Group, who have loaned HLS well over $70million, and who are the one lifeline
    keeping them open. They own a massive 30% of Fortress Investment Group.

    This means that Turner have a very substantial influence over the financial
    decisions made by Fortress, and have the potential to make them withdraw the
    loan. No loan means no more animals killed inside HLS, no more torture and no
    more suffering.

    SAMPLE LETTER (but please write your own polite email if you prefer)

    Dear [INSERT NAME],

    I am writing in regards to your company’s shares in, and subsequent influence
    over the Fortress Investment Group. Specifically I would like to draw your
    attention to an ongoing loan facility that they have provided to Huntingdon
    Life Sciences (HLS), to the value of $70 million +.

    As you may be aware, HLS are Europe’s largest animal testing laboratory, who
    have been exposed repeatedly between 1997 and 2008, punching puppies in the
    face, cutting open live primates without anaesthesia, allowing primates to self
    mutilate, and staff have been caught drinking and drug taking between invasive
    procedures, as well as on occasion accidentally stitching surgical equipment
    into live animals.

    For more information on this, please visit:
    SHAC >> Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty.

    The reason that Fortress agreed to provide this loan was due to previous
    lenders (including NatWest and Stephens Inc.) withdrawing their support, in
    part due to animal welfare concerns. There can be no doubt that Fortress are
    aware of the public outrage towards HLS, as part of their loan agreement has a
    confidentiality clause.

    I urge you to use your influence over Fortress to encourage them to disengage
    with HLS, and to adopt an ethical policy which prevents future investment in
    the most controversial, and most exposed animal testing laboratory in the

    Yours sincerely
