While we are still reconciling everything that has transpired over the past several years, it is clear today that NIO Florida (now Eleventh Hour for Animals) has had a considerable impact on UF’s ability to rape taxpayers and quietly get rich off the blood and screams of their nonhuman victims. And rather than engage any issue in which there is exists a decided public interest to procure facts, they chose to divert attention from themselves entirely. Rather, they embarked on a dedicated campaign of police intimidation and harassment, subjecting activists involved in this campaign to repeated arrests and incarcerations since 2010.

The University of Florida is consulting with Information Technology professionals to shore up their “pain points” or vulnerabilities in their computer systems. In this case, they are having difficulty controlling incoming emails. It appears that they are concerned about emails coming from outside sources from which that they want to shield their faculty, administration, and students.

In the summer of 2012, the University City Church of Christ in Gainseville was given the option of taking an active stand against taxpayer-funded animal abuse or, by virtue of their silence, giving their tacit approval to UF’s unconscionable crimes against God’s creations. Their silence over the last 18 months has rendered them a legitimate target and Eleventh Hour’s initiative to Free the UF Monkeys is continuing where it left off.
In order to keep their $400 million annual taxpayer-funded animal torture industry generating profits, UF has demonstrated that there are no depths to which they will not sink to keep their atrocities hidden from the public.

Original Title: “University of Florida: Criminalizing Transparency”
(Compiled from news sources and government documents — November 15, 2013)
In the summer of 2010, activists discovered that University of Florida researcher Mingzhou Ding was receiving taxpayer-funded annuities totaling millions of dollars from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to perform brain mapping experiments on monkeysi. Brain mapping is a singularly barbaric exercise in which the skull cap is sawed off to expose the brain. The conscious animal is then restrained in a chair, sometimes bolted into place with screws that secure the skull to a metal rod to prevent all movement while pain, blindness, or any of a spectrum of tortures is visited upon the subject. The animal is regularly deprived of food and water because starvation and dehydration induce compliance in the desperate monkey. Electrodes are attached to the brain throughout the animal’s ordeal to measure responses to offending stimuli.
The University of Florida is going for an all-out media blackout to keep their crimes hidden from the community in Gainesville.

With UF’s championship basketball team scheduled to start playing at 4 pm this afternoon, our protestors were strategically placed on four corners of an intersection with very heavy foot and motor vehicle traffic. One newspaper took some pictures and were given a flyer as they were stopped at a light and we had a chance to speak. And WUFT-TV set up cameras and gave Eleventh Hour an opportunity to speak about the monkeys for Gainesville viewers. That interview will air on Monday at 6 pm and we will post the video when it is published.
The long-tailed macaque is native to the jungles of Southeast Asia. But, unless we get him out, Calvin will never know freedom, never climb a tree, and never feel the sun warm his little body. Assigned Holocaust No. CX99, Calvin was born into captivity at the notorious Alpha Genesis on June 1, 2003 and sold into slavery at the University of Florida on February 25, 2008.
Editorial Note: It is unclear to us why UF paid the Florida Legislature to have the laws changed in Florida to conceal the identities of their researchers. NIO believes that if you are going to torture animals for a living, then stand up and be proud, and let us admire your work!

Roxanne Janiak-Werner is UF’s “primate expert” inside their dungeons. In many cases, the vivisectors collecting grant money for torturing their imprisoned monkeys will never even see their victim; most responsibilities fall to their second-in-command, in this case, Roxanne.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FEBRUARY 14, 2014
COMPLAINT CITES CORRUPTION AND NEGLIGENCE IN UF MONKEY LABS
Moments ago, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a second federal complaint with the USDA for violations of the Animal Welfare Act citing a culture of corruption inside the University of Florida and a companion culture of negligence that permeates their nonhuman primate experimentation program. The complaint filed by the group’s founder, Camille A. Marino, relates solely to a 6-monkey “research” study funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the shocking details of which we reported days ago. Among the documented violations: the “scientific” rationale offered by UF for the torment visited on six macaques was simply that the Fox Foundation was willing to give them the money to do so when they couldn’t find funding elsewhere; there are up to 5-month lapses where some of the monkeys were neither monitored nor was any care whatsoever recorded; and they actually LOST a monkey.
