Munching on leafy greens and climbing through wooded playgrounds, about 500 crab-eating macaque monkeys were acclimating to their new home in the Ben Shemen Forest on Tuesday.
By next week, the transfer of all 650 born-in-thewild Mauritian macaques from Mazor Farm to the Ben Shemen Monkey Park’s sanctuary will be complete.
Activists have long been battling the activities of Mazor Farm, located on Moshav Mazor southeast of Petah Tikva, which has bred macaque monkeys for two decades and exported them for medical purposes.
In Gary Yourofsky’s words, “look at this from the animals’ point of view.”
Editorial Note: NIO moved away from the ideology of Total Liberation in 2012, embracing a Non-Humans First approach to Animal Liberation which recognizes that all oppressed human animals still exercise and enjoy a birthright of privilege over non-human animals. However, we value the working alliances we’ve established over the years with anarchist contingents and other social justice activists. And, therefore, this site will remain an open forum where true revolutionaries may challenge one another’s ideas while building and solidifying our own culture of resistance. We thank our colleagues at Vegan Warfare for this powerful and thoughtful analysis.
Negotiation is over. Moving beyond liberal veganism.
About 40 years ago animal rights was a concept promoted and activated by determined individuals, passionate about expanding their sphere of compassion. Not only did many of these animal rights activists go vegan but they also took action in the streets. Big colorful signs, petition signing, banner drops, and other tactics were deployed to disrupt the normalcy of routine non-human animal exploitation. Many of these tactics served to spread awareness of slaughterhouse atrocities in hopes of generating sympathy and agricultural reform. Overtime as more and more people began to acknowledge and speak out against non-human animal exploitation, tactics, ideas, and even other movements began to evolve.

Congratulations to 13-year old Kevin Storm for his amazing success in bringing veganism and Animal Liberation to the young generation. At an awards ceremony in Los Angeles in December, Kevin was the recipient of “The Paul McCartney Animal Hero Kids Young Veg Advocate Award.” And now, as New Jersey’s youngest radio host, next Sunday he is moving to a one-hour show on “920 The Voice,” the home of conservative speciesist talking head, Glenn Beck. With his new and vibrant mainstream platform, Kevin will engage his peers around gaming and other relevant issues as he educates them about the animal holocaust.
As of this morning, Brian Vaillancourt has been moved to Robinson Correctional Facility, a minimum security men’s prison in Illinois. Last month he was approved to start taking college courses and he is looking forward to finishing his education at this new facility.
Brian is an ALF operative convicted of the attempted arson of a slaughterhouse called McDonald’s in Rosemont. His expected release date is September 25, 2020. In addition to his covert forms of activism, he was integrally involved in Eleventh Hour’s above ground efforts to expose and confront vivisection crimes. One of his last letters received by NIO’s founder saddened us. We believe Brian is not getting the support he needs and deserves.
Walter Bond (now Abdul Haqq) is an imprisoned animal liberation operative who burned down 3 animal exploitation businesses as the ALF Lone Wolf. He is also responsible for saving and rescuing countless animals who would otherwise have perished at the hands of abusers. Walter is NIO’s former Senior Editor of Militant Direct Action. And even though his CMU has cut off all communication between him and us, we will forever share the core values of truth and justice and doing what is necessary to save the innocent. Happy holidays, Walter. We love you. We miss you. And we look forward to the day when we are all free to work for Animal Liberation once again.

Happy Holidays everybody! Sorry if I haven’t been very responsive as of late. I have just been consumed with my language studies (Spanish/Arabic) and my exercise routine. As a prisoner in a counter-terrorism prison unit; with a few years of time under my belt now. I am becoming a bit reclusive as a matter of mental well being. While I yearn for my return to society that date is still years away and constantly having my mind on the outside while my body is incarcerated is frustrating and slightly schizophrenic.

Managing Editor, Negotiation Is Over
Senior Lab Investigator, Eleventh Hour for Animals
During the holiday season, as humans enjoy the luxury of spending time with our loved ones, the only relevant constant for the animals is that they are afforded no relief. They are entombed in cages inside granite bunkers, deprived of every semblance of normality and destined to die in the misery that enriches their tormentors. And as their freedom fighters, the only significance this season should have for us is to assess our strategies, our gains and losses over the past 12 months, and figure out how to go forward with greater focus and vehemence as each year unwinds.
The Monkey Struggle in Israel has been working with Negotiation Is Over to expose the global slave trade that spans from Mauritius to Israel to the US and to stop Mazor Farms from relocating its monkeys to a new breeding facility under construction in Florida. Last month, we reported on a secret shipment of monkeys that Mazor was trying to sneak into the states while there was no Minister of the Environment in place. Although this last shipment was approved last week, today the monkeys are safe. They will never be packed into cargo containers and will never be tortured to death inside vivisection labs.
No other individual has created a one-person vegan revolution, ripping the blinders off of meateaters one by one, and forcing them to confront their own complicity in a global holocaust. I saw statistics today that only 2% of the population is veg*n, 8% are former veg*ns, and 88% of the population was never either vegan or vegetarian. So I guess I’m wondering why so many of the alleged “educators” in our movement only make appearances at conferences and potlucks to soak up their weak accolades from the already-converted. I’m proud to debut his new lecture recorded last month in Michigan. -Camille

This pathetic excuse for a holiday is celebrated over the carcass of a once living, breathing being that wanted to live and had as much right to life as the savages carving its tortured body. May all who so dine soon come down with the maladies and illnesses well-documented to be associated with eating sentient creatures.
For many Indians, Thanksgiving is a day of sorrow and mourning and with good reason.
