Institution targeted: Columbia Asset Management, HLS Investor
Two anonymous messages received by activists in the US:
1. “An open letter to Brian Guenard, Vice President of Columbia Asset Management
Your company has chosen to invest in Huntingdon Life Sciences, with 3 million invested in HLS’s stock (LSRI.ob) held in your company’s Small Cap Core Fund. While a dozen other companies have wisely chosen to sell off all LSRi stock in the last several months, your company has not yet done so. Big mistake. Ever since we learned about it we have been following you closely, gathering information. We know everything there is to know about you.
We have “bumped into you” at Genuardi’s and watched you in and out of CVS – but I guess you didn’t notice. We followed when you took your little brat to the Gymboree and then to Chuck E Cheese’s. We know you take that little brat to the doctor at Buckingham Pediatrics, and we made sure that they were sent information about HLS and how you and your husband make money off of animal cruelty. When you were in Massachusettes at the end of December, we were snooping around your house getting more info about you – we know when you come and when you go. For a $50 bill, we even had your trash collector from Allied Waste set aside your garbage so we could have a peek at it. Boy, what a saucy Christmas present from Victoria’s Secret you bought for Paige! We contacted the Mom’s Club of Doylestown West, which your wife Paige is a member of, and told them about all the horrible things you do to animals. And maybe we’ll accompany you on the next “Mom’s Night Out” they organize – we guarantee it is a night you’ll never forget. We also contacted Carmine and Co., the hair salon where Paige gets her 100 dollar hair cuts, and chatted about the monkeys, cats, and other animals mutilated inside HLS thanks to Paige and her husband. We know about your friends like Linda and Neal Carey in Maple Glen, PA (maybe we’ll crash the next game night – won’t that be fun!). We know Paige’s sprint cell phone number (well it used to be – we took the liberty of cancelling the account. If you turn it back on, we’ll be sure to light that celly up like a torch), and about your two verizon accounts.
In fact we know all of your financial information. We know about Paige’s two investments in Columbia funds (we notice SHE is not investing in the Small Cap Core Fund. Wise choice), and about your New York’s 529 College Savings account for little Adam. We contacted your financial advisor for that account to let him know about HLS and your investments in blood money, and we may decide to make some withdrawls – let Adam pay for college by himself. We know your Bank of America bank account and checking account/routing numbers, and we have forwarded these on to numerous underground animal rights activists. As for us, we took the liberty of using your account to order you lots of protein shakes and a bodybuilding bench. Why? Because you’ll need to get strong to protect yourself, now that we have cancelled your contract with Advent Security and there is no one protecting your house and family. And at a time like this! Well, you were way behind on the payments anyway so consider it your fault. Also, because you invest in a company whose fraudulently tested drugs have killed many people, we decided to start making up for your crime against humanity by making a $1,000 donation of your money to Doctors Without Borders, dedicating it to the animals at HLS. If you so much as take one red cent of that donation back from the suffering people who need it, we will smash you so hard you won’t remember your own name.
Are you scared yet Brian? You should be. Columbia had better sell those shares, or the nightmare is just getting started.”
2. “Bank of America and Columbia Asset Management. You try to get an injunction against aboveground activists to stop them from protesting at your executives homes in Connecticut? You are idiots. If you did a little research, you will see that injunctions do nothing. They did nothing for Marsh, BOC, Seaboard, Roche, HLS, and others. In fact everytime an injunction is passed, we in the underground only get mad at you and make you a top priority. Injunctions won’t do anything to protect you from us – and we’re the ones you need to worry about.
To demonstrate what we mean, we visited the homes of two of your Columbia decision makers to hold stock in Huntingdon Life Sciences, managers of the small cap core fund that has hLS stock. First Rick D’Auteuil. We sit outside his house with wireless computer, some special equipment, and in ten minutes we know info about him. We find out about his cable and internet service with Cox Communications, and his account number, so we cancel his account. Rick you better get those child images of your computer – those aren’t legal you know.
So easy. Next outside home of Allyn Seymour, Jr. A little more time, but we get some good info here – his Fleet bank account number. We pass it along to lots of other underground activists so they can start used it to order all kinds of things. Like maybe calculators to add up the money you will lose by investing in HLS. We also find out about the jewelry he bought his wife for christmas from Lux Bond and Gold.We might have to snatch that, Allyn.
Since Rick has no internet and nothing to do, and since Allyn’s account will soon be emptied and he will have no money to go to Blockbuster Video, we decide to help them pass time by ordering hundreds of magazine subscriptions (in their name so they have to pay). happy reading. we also got a bunch for their fellow executive peter larson, but since we go to shac.net and see video of him saying he doesn’t like Huntingdon much and they a company soon to die, that’s all we do to him for now.
A message for Columbia – take your injunction and shove it up your arse. Have fun wasting money on lawyer fees while we have fun ruining your lives until you sell off your shares. there is only one way to protect your employees. sell the shares now….”
