Ct Up Crashes Bristol Meyers-Squibb Holiday Party

December 21, 2000

ACT Up New York was the coal in Bristol Meyers Squibb’s Christmas stocking as activists crashed the drug manufacturer’s holiday party and briefly seized two offices at the Park Avenue headquarters. Before being ejected, the protesters ruined the holiday spirit by charging the pharmaceutical company with price gouging for AIDS drugs. Act Up demanded that the company halve the cost of the life prolonging drug, Videx.
