UPDATE 10PM: ALL OF THE ACTIVISTS WERE JUST RELEASED
Activists are mobilizing and are on high alert. As Negotiation is Over has been reporting for weeks, Mazor Farms is in the process of relocating to Florida; it is believed the site of their new concentration camp is the Primera project under construction in Hendry County in Southwest Floria. It is planned to be able to house up to 3,200 hundred primates that will be bred to be tortured in vivisection.
In May of 2014, Israeli activists broke into Mazor Farms to document the conditions in which the monkeys were imprisoned. That footage will be released here soon. Today, our colleagues began to circulate the first aerial images from their undercover operation began being released in Israel. NIO has been given the exclusive footage to begin to disseminate in the United States.
Breakfast in the Chemung County Jail is served at 5 a.m. This morning—Friday, November 21, 2014—it was Cheerios and milk plus two slaps of universally-despised “breakfast cake.” Along with trays of food—which are passed through the bars—arrive the morning rounds of meds for the inmates who take them. Now comes my favorite time of day in jail—the two quiet hours between breakfast and 7 a.m. before the television clicks on and we are ordered to make our beds and the loud day begins. Between the end of breakfast and 7 a.m., most women go back to sleep. Now I can hear only the sounds of their breathing—different rhythms all—and, on the far side of the steel door—the occasional voices of the C.O.s (correction officers, a.k.a. the guards) and the walkie-talkie orders they themselves are receiving.
A ban on the exportation of monkeys out of Israel goes into effect on January 1. As we reported on Wednesday, Mazor Farms is now making a desperate effort to ship its captive primates out of the country while there is no Minister of the Environment in place. In order to stop them, Israeli activists with The Monkey Struggle are demonstrating today for the people who now have the power to stop this. In coordination with their efforts, we are asking the rest of the world to take a moment to send a letter to appeal to the highest levels of the Israeli government for these monkeys’ lives.
Suggested Subject Line
Please Stop the Illegal Mazor Farms Monkey Shipment
Dear Ministers and Officials,
Since the Minister of the Environment resigned recently, it has come to my attention that Mazor Farms is seeking to use this loophole to bypass protocols that have been put in place by the Israeli government and get an illegal shipment out of the country. Under laws that exist until December 31, their monkeys may only be shipped out of Israel if they are going to a “medical research facility.” After January 1, 2015, a complete ban will go into effect outlawing these exports entirely. I admire your country for taking this progressive and necessary step.
On January 1, 2015, a ban will go into effect preventing Israel from exporting monkeys to vivisection labs around the world.
Last month, Owen Griffiths, Eli Holtzman, Zeev Brin, and Moshe Busmitz, Managing Directors of Mazor Farms, applied for a permit to ship 240 monkeys out of Israel to Burkshire Corporation in the US. Israeli activists were able to stop this shipment because Burshire is a breeding camp, not a medical research facility. Under the existing laws, primates may only be exported for “medical research.”
In another desperate attempt to relocate the remaining monkeys into the US before the ban goes into effect, Israeli activists just confirmed that Mazor is attempting to ship more monkeys out of the country. The intended destination of this shipment is unclear. See the rest of this entry…
by Camille A. Marino In 1990, Alain De Coessemaeker helped form the first Animal rights movement in Belgium, Acriegroup Dieren Bevrijding, ADB, which means Action Group Animal Liberation. He has been a biocentric and ethical vegan since 1984. Please watch his inspired presentation at the International Animal Rights Conference in September of 2014 entitled “Tree Rights, Animal Rights, One Fight.”
And now he was just sentenced to pay 350,000 Euros (almost $500,000) for the “crime” of planting trees in his parents’ garden. Speaking about what these trees mean to him, Alain recounts his childhood:
These are the pictures from some of the simultaneous events that took place around the world on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, as activists stood together in solidarity against vivisectors. If you murder animals from 9 – 5, we will find you where you eat, sleep, and used to relax….
70 – 80 protestors showed up to speak for the Mazur monkeys and against the global slave trade.
On Saturday, November 15, activists around the world are rising up in solidarity against the vivisection complex. If you torture animals to death from 9 – 5, we will find you where you live… where you eat, sleep, and raise the kiddies…
A few preliminary events were announced last week. Here are some more actions that were made public over the weekend…
