Animal rights activists continue their intimidation....

We've blogged on animal rights activists in the UK many times - here's more intimidation.
Animal rights activists threatened small shareholders in GlaxoSmithKline, the pharmaceutical company, with public exposure yesterday unless they sold their shares within two weeks.

Shareholders, many of whom are pensioners, were sent anonymous letters saying that their names would be put on a website unless the shares were sold.

The letters claimed that animal rights activists could drive the pharmaceutical giant to ruin because of its involvement with Huntingdon Life Sciences, which tests drugs on animals.

"Over the next two weeks every shareholder of GlaxoSmithKline will be receiving this letter," they said. "If you have any doubts over the effectiveness of this action then keep a close eye on the GSK share price and watch it plummet."

Many shareholders were left frightened and bewildered. "I have not been able to do anything all day," said a 73-year-old Berkshire pensioner. "It is blackmail. These people are worse than terrorists."
