Health Care Protest At Aetna Annual Meeting

PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ A group of protesters briefly delayed Aetna’s annual shareholders meeting in Philadelphia, but police say there were no arrests.

Aetna Inc. spokesman Fred Laberge says the meeting was delayed for several minutes when a group of health care protesters came in the room chanting, “We want health care, Aetna’s not fair.”

Security asked them to leave and the meeting resumed after several minutes. Laberge says Aetna is not sure why it was targeted and that the Hartford, Conn.-based company has been a strong proponent of health care reform.

A spokeswoman for the Philadelphia Police Department says no arrests were made.
