While all university “animal care and use programs” are the stuff of nightmares, the following five institutions deserve special mention based on:

• Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations,
• numbers of animals killed,
• painfulness and invasiveness of experiments, and
• unwillingness to make improvements.

Please bear in mind when reading this post that rats, mice, birds, amphibians and other animals have been excluded from coverage by the Animal Welfare Act. This means — given that rats and mice alone are believed to comprise over 90% of the animals used in experiments — that the true depth of the depravity at U.S. universities with “animal care and use programs” is much greater.

On UF Murdering Bucky because of Marino

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

by Camille Marino

The first monkey that I ever knew about that anyone tried to get out of UF and get into a sanctuary was Louis. A lab tech who is no longer at the university tried for months to get Louis released to Jungle Friends in Gainesville. He was murdered in July of 2010, 3 full months before I ever started the campaign to Free the UF Monkeys. The reason that Louis was not released is because he was in an extremely deteriorated state and the vivisectors did not want the world to ever see what they had done. In fact, Louis had a broken hip that was diagnosed in July of 2009. Rather than give him any pain relief, the vivisectors inside UF forced him to live in agony, with anorexia and chronic vomiting, while they repeatedly checked him for parasites to no avail. Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a federal complaint for systemic incompetence inside UF’s monkey labs citing Louis’ vet records.

Animals with Human Rights Make Vivisectors Run Scared

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

beagleSource: Scientific American

Dogs and cats, historically, have been people’s property like a couch or a toaster. But as they’ve moved into our houses and our hearts, courts of law have begun to treat them as something more. They can inherit your estate, get an appointed lawyer if your relatives challenge that inheritance and are protected from cruel acts. Your toaster can’t do any of that.

Begging for crumbs from the master’s table

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

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.

“If you don’t fight, you’ve already lost”: Debbie Vincent jailed for 6 yrs Remains Defiant

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

On Tuesday, Debbie Vincent, an animal rights activist from the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign was sentenced to six years in prison for conspiracy to blackmail after a five week long trial at Winchester Crown Court. She was also given an Anti Social Behaviour Order which means she can be arrested if she protests against or contacts Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) or its business partners for a further five years after her release from prison.

The sentence should serve as a wake up call to anti-capitalists of the need to offer solidarity to those who have been singled out for repression because of their involvement in effective resistance to corporate power.

A press release from the Blackmail 3 support campaign quotes Debbie: “I have been made an example of because I put myself up as a public face of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty and for believing that such places as Huntingdon Life Sciences should be resigned to the history books.” “In some ways I’m really not surprised I was found guilty, as I don’t believe anyone can get justice when faced with a political conspiracy charge and the huge resources of the state and multinationals against me. I will always have hope and will always continue to try my best to make the inhabitants of this planet more compassionate to all and try to make the world a better place for all.”

Interview with animal activist Aran Mathai from the UK

- Hi Aran, great to have you. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

When I was small I started asking my mum questions such as where does beef come from, “oh poor cow”. My mum started to do research into the meat industry which led her to become vegetarian. At 6 years old I decided to join her, after seeing pictures of the cruelty. When I was about 8 or 9 me and my mum found out about the killings inherent in the dairy and egg industry and both went vegan.

Monkey Murderer Jentsch Moves Into New Blood-Money Mansion

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Note: This article was first published on this site on July 19, 2010. In 2012 when the vivisection complex got me for two felonies that could have landed me in prison for 10 years, certain info was deleted here and republished by my colleagues to shield me from further charges. Since David Tiller Jentsch still had an injunction against me which finally expired in October 2013, this info is now being republished from dorothybaez.com. Until the animals are free…  -Camille

Jentsch’s New Address: 14533 Valley Vista Boulevard, Sherman Oaks, CA

Update on WWP Civil Suit & Their Feeble Attempts to Silence Activists

Sunday, April 13th, 2014
Many victims inside the University of Florida come from slave traders in South Florida. This innocent victim could easily have come from WWP. THIS is why we fight!

Many victims inside the University of Florida come from slave traders in South Florida. This tormented monkey could easily have come from WWP. THIS is why we fight!

by Ron Roberts

After spending considerable time speaking with our attorneys and attending the court hearing on Friday, April 11, I am more confident than ever of our right to forcefully advocate for the helpless victims of the atrocities perpetrated by Matt Block, his family, and the company he runs surreptitiously, Worldwide Primates.

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.
