methods. Participants carrying placards saying "Animal Murderers" or
"No to Vivisection" gathered for three hours. Although animal-testing
is not conducted at the Novartis factory, the demonstrators accuse
Novartis of collaborating with British company, Huntingdon Life

cruelty", is to force business partners to discontinue dealing with

2 October 07:Basel Switzerland:
Animal activists payed a three and a half hour visit to Novartis
front gate. We arrived at 7.30am with sirens wailing and began
screaming slogans at the incoming workers. We were accompanied by a
couple of very nice Swiss Police who were to accompany us throughout
the rest of the day at the other locations ,Actelion, Syngenta then
back to Novartis back gate to again barrack the workers leaving the
areal. After an extremely noisy day the demo ended at 18.00 peacefully.
