The Moderation of a Movement

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

warby Camille A. Marino

Moderated elements within the animal rights movement suggest that more aggressive grassroots efforts are counter-productive and hurt the movement. The grassroots actors retort that the only interests that are served by pacified and moderated forms of activism are those of the abusers. They say the last thing the animals need to compound the hell in which they’re entombed is for us — their freedom fighters — to confine ourselves to the parameters laid out for us by abusers and the state; focusing on welfare violations only conveys an illusion to the public that the other 99% of vivisection is humane and responsible they say; confining our speech to designated areas, they say, only ensures we will never speak effectively; constraining ourselves according to their rules is tantamount to putting ourselves in restraints they say.

Mazor Monkeys to be shipped to Burkshire in US; Is Mazor relocating to Florida?

Monday, October 27th, 2014

UPDATE, 10:30 am: Moments after publishing this post, activists in Israel confirmed that they were able to stop the shipment to Burkshire because it is not a “medical research facility.” While everyone is breathing a huge sigh of relief this morning, the world will be watching this situation very closely.

Mazor Farms is a nonhuman primate breeding facility in Mazor, Israel that supplies vivisection labs around the world with baby monkeys to be tortured to death.

On January 1, 2015, exporting monkeys out of Israel will officially be banned. Until that date, the Attorney General is allowing exports for “medical research purposes” only. And investigators with Yedioth Ahoronot in Israel have now unearthed disturbing information about the monkeys currently imprisoned in Mazor.

As we previously reported, Liberty breeds dogs and cats to be sold into vivisection labs. Many of these condemned felines have met the most horrific and brutal deaths imaginable inside the University of Florida. We now have verified information about some of their independent drivers who are solely responsible for driving these animals to their deaths.

Nov. 15: Global Day of Action — The Vivisector Next Door

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Vivisectors tell their friends and family that they’re “researchers” or “scientists.” Sounds impressive, huh!? They don’t say, “Hi, nice to meet you. I torture animals to death for a living.” That’s our job!!! And so we’re going out en masse to visit vivisectors where they sleep and play.

talking to vivisectors’ concerned neighbors in 2011

Negotiation is Over is proud to announce our first coordinated global action against the vivisection complex since 2010.

UCLA Monkey Murderer David (Tiller) Jentsch once said that because of activists talking to his neighbors, he was forced to have a lot of “embarrassing” discussions with them. The first time we did this here in Florida, the police were already stationed outside vivisector Mingzhou Ding’s house. They guarded eclectic-animal-torture-professional Raymond Bergeron’s house all weekend (incidentally, even Bergeron’s colleagues refer to him as a “bastard.”)  Wouldn’t it be exhilarating to have one day where vivisectors were trapped in their houses like caged lab animals while we went door-to-door talking to their friends and neighbors?! Well, November 15 is that day.

Exclusive Interview with National Operation Anti-Vivisection (NOAV)

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

noav

Thank you for taking the time to speak with Negotiation is Over. We are thrilled to see such a dynamic and strategic anti-vivisection campaign enter the playing field and look forward to watching and supporting your efforts. What is your objective?

Our objective is simple: an end to all animal experiments! Of course this is our long-term goal. In the short term our aim is to reinvigorate grass-roots anti-vivisection campaigning in the UK. In the past Britain was the global epicentre for the international animal rights movement, but due to some very strategic (rather than necessarily widespread) police repression, a lot of the energy has been lost. Our aim is to bring back that energy while adapting to and working within the current legal framework we face.

Does NOAV have any philosophy about the tactics and strategies they embrace?

NOAV believes that vivisection will stop when the detriments of doing vivisection for the industry outweigh the benefits. We intend to create those detriments through every lawful means.

If we want to compromise the vivisection complex infrastructure, two highly-strategic targets are the breeders and transport operators that deliver the nonhuman victims between concentration camps. So if you are in New York and seeking to make a real and substantial difference in ending vivisection, then today is your lucky day.

NOAV to rejuvenate grassroots anti-vivisection activism in UK

Friday, September 19th, 2014

noav

The exciting new grassroots National Operation Anti-Vivisection (NOAV) in the UK promises to rejuvenate the landscape with focused, dynamic, aggressive, creative, no-nonsense action.

According to their website:

“National Operation Anti-Vivisection (NOAV) is a completely grass-roots network of animal rights activists opposed to vivisection in the UK. We believe animal experimentation is cruel, outdated and unscientific.

We feel strongly that institutional animal abuse of all kinds will continue while the benefits to the companies abusing animals outweigh the detriments. Through campaigning, lawful protests, boycotts and all other lawful means we intend to create those detriments!

The time for talking, thinking and plotting is over – it’s time for action! We are not a talking shop or a social club, we are a no nonsense anti-vivisection activist group! If you are ready to take action to stop animal testing, please check out our campaign pages!”

UF under scrutiny for alleged unethical animal treatment since ‘11

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

flyer pdf - june 16-page-001

by Chabeli Herrera (Independent Alligator)

Twenty-two goats, one rabbit and one puppy have died as a result of negligent care on behalf of UF, according to a complaint issued Monday by animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW. 

In two complaints issued to the U.S. Department of Agriculture since August, Stop Animal Exploitation NOW details several incidents beginning in 2011 that violated the Animal Welfare Act.

 “We believe the public has a right to know what goes on in those laboratories,” said executive director Michael Budkie. 

The first report, filed by UF in January 2012, involves the death of 22 goats due to severe anemia.In the 2011 incident, staff and graduate students performing studies on the goats failed to treat or euthanize them after the study was completed.  (more…)

Animal Liberation: The “Secret” to Success

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

strategyby Camille A. Marino

For years now, I’ve been stressing that we need to focus on one issue at a time, complete it successfully, and then move on to the next. We are up against a machine that dispatches animals to a global holocaust with ruthless efficiency. Their sole agenda is profits. And whether they like or dislike those with whom they work is irrelevant; they have a job to do. For a start, this is the mentality we must adopt.

Further, we cannot afford to be dilettantes, protesting greyhound races one week, a traveling circus the next, or, my own personal pet peeve, demonstrating against dog meet in Korea… that is, unless you’re actually in Korea!!!  When we post pictures of our unorganized and scattered efforts on Facebook, smiling behind our pretty signs that we wave at passing traffic, I can only imagine that industrial abusers are sitting back laughing at us in proportion to the degree I am slumping back in my chair cringing.

This is not to say that these issues are unimportant. Every animal who suffers at the hands of our species matters and our hearts ache every single time we witness another atrocity. But we cannot act on emotion. We need to emulate the enemy to successfully conquer the enemy. If we want to save them all, we need to be strategic, educated, and act intelligently. We need to reap the greatest possible return from our less-than-overwhelming  resources. This means that we need to study campaigns, understand what does and does not work, and allow our approaches to evolve accordingly.

Breaking: UF Withholds Video of Maimed Horses for 8 Months, Violates Law AGAIN!!!!

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Source: Eleventh Hour for Animals

Eleventh Hour for Animals has sued the University of Florida three times in as many years to compel disclosure of public records documenting their $400-million-a-year, taxpayer-funded vivisection industry. We won twice. In late 2013, they conceded out of court the day after our third suit was filed. And now in 2014, UF is once again thumbing its nose at Florida State laws. Since January, they have intentionally and deliberately withheld video of the horses they maim. By the late spring, we were able to prove that the previously-requested video exists of vivisectors breaking horses’ legs and recording the progression of lameness as their victims are forced to run on treadmills. While discussions with our own lawyer is privileged, we are now disclosing 8 months of private emails that document UF’s flagrant violation of the law.
