“On May 5, 2012, I was charged with the felony of ‘Posting a Message’ in Michigan because of the graphically-violent death threats against a vivisector that my former colleague in New Mexico published on my website. Evidence of this FACT from the Michigan proceeding was submitted to the NM courts last week. My former colleague is now prosecuting me to restrain me from discussing my case and his role in it. It is problematic when vivisectors attempt to prosecute activists as ‘stalkers’ for exercising their First Amendment rights. It is high treason when the same course of action is pursued by other alleged ‘activists.'” -Camille
On May 2, 2012, Camille A. Marino was arrested for an act of civil disobedience against a vivisector on the campus of Wayne State University. As of September 16, 2014, both the vivisector and the individual in New Mexico have now both testified in court under oath that this act of non-violent protest constituted “stalking.”
Camille Marino is an Animal Liberation activist who lives in Wildwood, Florida.
In 2012, she was arrested for the first time in her life and, ultimately, spent 6 months in jail because her former friend and colleague had published graphically-violent death threats on her website. Despite the fact that her former friend fled rather than defending his own words, she never snitched.
