[WAR] 12 Days of Xmas: Day 3 – God Rest Ye Greedy Money Men


DAY 3: God Rest Ye Greedy Money Men

One of the most frustrating aspects of our work against the notorious animal abusing firm of Huntingdon Life Sciences, has been the on-again/off-again Fortress Investment Group campaign. Fortress is the company that financed Huntingdon Life Sciences (trading on the NYSE Arca as LSR) back a few years and allowed them to keep torturing and killing animals. Inside information has prompted SHAC to reinstate the campaign against Fortress. For more detailed information, click on the graphic above or go to: http://www.shac.net/action/financial/targets.html Worst case scenario, they are still financing the killing, best case scenario is that they no longer do, but must be held accountable for the close to half a million animals that have been killed by Huntingdon Life Sciences while they were fueled by Fortress funds. This Day 3 of Xmas ’09 is dedicated to the greedy enablers at Fortress Investment Group.

God Rest Ye Greedy Money Men

(Dedicated to Fortress Investment Group)

God rest ye greedy money men

Let nothing block your way.

You funded L-S-R which rose

In an astounding way.

You raked in all the profits

While the beagle pups did pay

O tidings of profits and wealth

Profits and wealth

O tidings of profits and wealth

From England to America

This wretched company came

And unto all the animals

They brought enormous pain

How can they get away with it?

Fortress Investment is to blame

O tidings of torture and death

Torture and death

O tidings of torture and death

This evil company was broke

Their shares they took a dive

Until the greedy

Fortress scum

Gave them loans to stay alive

O Fortress, how could you knowing animals would die?

O tidings of blood and pain

Blood and pain

O tidings of blood and pain

To your homes, activists

did come to shout and shame your names

Your crazy neighbors took

offense and expressed to us their rage

We told them to take it up

with you that we were not to blame

O tidings of misdirected angst

Angst and dismay

O tidings of angst and dismay

“Fear not, then” said the men in masks

“Let nothing you affright”

“This day we come to free them all

And things will look so bright

To liberate them all is right

From Baker’s power and might.”

O weeping and whining by Cass

Whining by Cass

O weeping and whining by Cass

Now to the A-L-F & SHAC give praise

All you that profit from pain

And with true love and brotherhood

Forget this evil name –

HLS You may have lost your soul this year

But once you cut your ties

We’ll take you off the target list

You’ll no longer have to lie

Then back to tidings of comfort and wealth


Call in your loan,

get out of this mess.

This Friday in solidarity with the SHAC Global Week of Action, activists will gather at the world headquarters of Fortress Investment Group. In keep with the theme of the holidays, we will be out in force educating the public about the cruelty that goes on behind locked doors and razor wire fences at Huntingdon Life Science. We will also be letting folks know that Fortress Investment Group is responsible for keeping this horrible killer company in business.
