A little after noon on Oct 19, several dozen protesters descended on 1850 M st, where Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates have an office. This lobbying firm has accepted $300,000 from the coup plotters in Honduras to boost their US image.

Here’s a picture:
Now, as angry protesters show up, they are discovering that helping those who kill people is just as bad an idea as companioes have found it to be to help HLS(Huntingdon Life Sciences) kill puppies.
In fact, this protest culminated in a two-pronged effort to enter the lobbyist’s upstairs office, something rarely seen now in DC HLS protests. One team was bait, with six people openly asking security to enter, while a second team slipped by and got upstairs.
Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates locked their office doors, but workers from other offices were reported to be clearly sympathetic!
Perhaps Peter Schechter, the founder of the firm, may face protests at his home in the future, just as he would it it was HLS from whom he was accepting the profits of murder?
(from the audio:)
Peter Schechter, Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates, listen good! This is just the beginning! If you think corporations that get caught helping that animal lab Huntingdon Life Sciences kill puppies have problems, remember that yo just got caught helping the coup plotters in Honduras kill PEOPLE!
