Begging for crumbs from the master’s table

begging for crumbsby Camille A. Marino

Disturbingly, my colleague in Rome reports this morning that “vivisection in Italy has increased radically despite that tens of thousands of people rallied in the streets last year.” And I remain among the activists in the states who continue to admire campaigns by the Italians in recent years that galvanized the public and, simultaneously, rattled the foundations of the global vivisection complex.

Upon analyzing history as it unfolds, however, this state of affairs seems to confirm my belief that this is not about changing hearts and minds. Vivisection is a business. It is about pushing it into the liability column and making it detrimental to continue… by any means we have at our disposal.

University researchers in Florida who work with animals are now lobbying the state legislature for the right to shelter personal information from animal activists intent on intimidating them.

A bill currently moving through the Florida House of Representatives would exempt the personal contact information of animal researchers at state-funded research facilities from being part of the public record.

Criminalizing Dissent at the University of Florida

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

by Camille A. Marino (simulposted with Dissident Voice)

On Friday, July 13, 2012, I looked into the face of evil. It was the third time in 6 months that the vivisection-state complex had ambushed me, slapped handcuffs around my wrists, and threw me into a cell. As I was led from the courtroom after having had a $500,000 bond placed on my head, my eyes met those of the sadistic dog-murdering vivisector from Wayne State University (WSU). Having accomplished his mission for the vivisectors at the University of Florida (UF), he smiled into my face with a sickening ghoulish grin I’ll never forget. I stared right back at him and returned his smile thinking I’ve only just begun to fight.

Vivisection: A Moderate Proposal

Monday, March 17th, 2014

a victim inside the university of florida

by Derrick Jensen

To the dismay of many of my friends, I’m not unalterably opposed to vivisection. In fact, I’d wholeheartedly support it, were vivisectors to make one minor administrative change. It would be that scientists perform the experiments not on nonhumans but on themselves and their colleagues. Scientists keep telling us how beneficial the experiments are for Science with a capital S, Progress with a capital P, and of course Man with a capital M. If the experiments really are Necessary with a capital N, the scientists should be willing to make this sacrifice (with a small s) for the greater good. In any case, because of strict regulations, according to no less an authority than Lord Sainsbury, British Science Minister, advocate of genetic engineering and owner of a very large supermarket chain, experiments generally cause no more than “moderate” suffering. If this is actually true, scientists shouldn’t too much mind throwing their hats into this ring.

Dr. Barry Friedman’s Plea to Congress: Stop Funding UF Labs with My Taxes

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Editorial Note: This afternoon, Dr. Barry Friedman mailed the letter that follows to a significant portion of the Congress of the United States. It is our hope that activists across the country will join this Eleventh Hour for Animals event on Facebook and use a modified version of his communication to send a plea to your own representatives and senators. Demand that our government stop funding atrocities inside the University of Florida immediately!

Dear Senator/Congressman ___,

I am writing to you about an atrocity happening inside the University of Florida that can occur only because it is being subsidized by the U. S. government. At any given moment, it is estimated by lab techs inside UF that more than 10,000 innocent animals comprised of every species including monkeys, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and more as well as fish are held captive and tortured inside their labs. Many of these animals are afforded zero protection under the federal Animal Welfare Act, adopted in 1962, specifically to exclude the most-abused species (i.e., rats, mice, and fish) from being recognized as “animals” under this outdated and deliberately special-interest-serving legislation. Invoking the Freedom of Information Act and Florida’s open-records law, animal-welfare activists have obtained photographs that offer a grim portrayal of the horrors to which the sadistic researchers are subjecting the confused, suffering animals. Some of these heartbreaking photographs appear on the enclosure. [attached as images in this post].

Almost every single time I learn something new, it only serves to highlight how much more I still have to learn. This is especially true when it comes to the obscured and intentionally-convoluted animal torture industry inside the University of Florida for which taxpayers award them approximately $400 million annually.

NIO Exposes Ding’s Fraudulent Grants, MILLION$ Cut Off from UF Vivisection Labs

Monday, March 10th, 2014
Mingzhou Ding - received millions of dollars from NIH for primate experiments in which UF had zero involvement

Mingzhou Ding – received millions of dollars from NIH for primate experiments in which UF had zero involvement

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.
