The following video (parts 1 and 2) was played in a loop during the rally in Basel last Thursday during the Novartis Annual General Meeting (AGM). Screened at the steps of the building where the AGM was being held, the shareholders going in and out of the the meeting had no choice but to hear and watch these messages. The people you will see and hear in this video are AIDS activists, people fighting for access to medicines across the world, people who get their medicines from India or just concerned individuals. Messages came from across the world including Argentina, Burkina Faso, Russia, Morocco, Kenya, Nepal, Thailand, Pakistan, India, France, Australia, South Korea, Germany, Switzerland, the Philippines, Myanmar : http://www.actupbasel.org/actupbasel/?People-talking-to-Novartis-from
