Reportback from NYC area activists:
Activists in New York City gathered together in front of the Empire State Building on Monday, March 19th, to protest Skanska USA right outside of their headquarters. A total of eight protesters arrived, holding signs and chanting for Skanska to cut their contract. Inquisitive and supportive pedestrians talked to the protesters, asking what the campaign was all about and expressed their solidarity. A few Skanska employees walked by and video tapped the protesters during their lunch hour as well.
NYC activists will continue to put pressure on Skanska USA until they cut their contract with the University of Washington and not go forward with building an animal research facility, torturing and murdering thousands of animals for experimentations.
