This afternoon, Act Up-Paris protested in front of Novartis-France headquarters in Rueil Malmaison, a town near Paris. The activists blocked the entrance of the building and shut the gate. They unfurled a banner which said « Over our dead bodies », recovered the entrance of fake-blood and chanted slogans such as « Shame, shame, shame on Novartis». Novatis decided to call the police. The protest aimed to denounce the policy of the Swiss firm which is suing the Indian government in Court. The next hearing will take place on the 17th October in New Delhi. If Novartis wins, the ability of India to produce cheap generic medicines for new molecules will be strongly affected. This is a declaration of war to people living with the diseases worldwide. Act Up-Paris condemns this action of the vulture Novartis.
