“Face Of Innocence”

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Face of Innocence“Face of Innocence”
by Graham McGeorge

Rhesus Macaques have frequented the Silver River since the 1930’s. Brought here against their free will almost ninety years ago, they are still considered an invasive species. At what point do they earn the environmental protective rights of the native animals ?

The University of Florida is conducting research on these monkeys and the state is turning a blind eye. This abuse and cruelty has to stop now!

Silver River Macaques – Press Release

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Distress
Silver River Macaques – pr
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Gainsville, Florida Feb 20, 2015 –

Graham McGeorge has spent the last five years photographing a feral colony of Rhesus Macaques, a type of monkey, along the Silver River in Ocala, Forida. And now he has spent the last few weeks looking for answers.

On January 31, 2015 McGeorge came across a monkey wearing a tight, strange looking collar. The collar appeared to have rubbed the monkey’s neck raw, and the monkey appeared distressed.

McGeorge immediately contacted Florida Fish and Wildlife to report the situation. He has received conflicting information about what happened next.

Collard Monkey Update w/Action

Monday, February 16th, 2015

3

UF is claiming the collar was removed from the Macaque photographed by the Silver River in FL, but will not provide any proof.
Unfortunately their past history does not lead one to believe, they are one of a Reputable Organization.
1. They are claiming that only one macaque was collared.
2. They claim the one macaque was not injured, but will give no proof.
3.They acknowledged the Open Records Request sent on Tues, 10th 2015 the same day, which is highly unusual for UF, but giving the benefit of the doubt, I will continue to wait a “reasonable amount of time” until further action is taken. (more…)

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.

Unconditional Anti-Oppression: The Rise of Anti-Speciesism in the Anarchist Movement

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

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.

The Monkey Struggle in Israel has been warning the world for months that Mazor Farms might be smuggling monkeys out of the country before the ban on exportation goes into effect on January 1. In May of 2014, determined to get the evidence, Israeli activists broke into the Farm and this is the first time these images have been published in the US. As we can easily see, the 1300 monkeys that are supposed to be on the property are absent.  Aerial footage taken last month and published last week confirms that there are only a few hundred monkeys left in this concentration camp.
