This woman didn’t think she was making enough money in a veterinarian practice where she could help animals, so she is now making a generous 6-figure salary in the animal torture sector.

According to a confidential source,

“she is soooo paranoid of animal rights activists — always afraid that her $400k house is going to get firebombed, and has security device to notify if anyone is coming down the driveway before getting to the locked gate.”

In Hendry County, Florida there’s a plan to open a new facility to breed thousands of monkeys for laboratory experiments.  Critics have a variety of questions, like where those monkeys would come from.

Florida state senator Dwight Bullard, whose district includes Hendry County and who is a member of the Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation, expressed his concerns to Jane in an on camera interview, asking “We’re talking about 3,000 primates.  If 2 or 3 of them get loose, what does that mean?”

Gemini, holocaust number 11F22, is a female beagle/maltese that was born into slavery inside UF on June 15, 2011. At her birth, her vet records indicate she was strong and healthy. At the direction of vivisector Thomas J. Conlon, Gemini began being drugged as a puppy to induce Glycogen Storage Disease which, according to their own protocol, causes “enlarged livers” and “severe kidney complications,” and “seizures and even death.”

SHAC: The End of an Era

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

We made history… The future is ours. SHAC (Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty) has been the biggest and most effective grassroots animal rights campaign the world has ever seen. Since we started, thousands of people across the globe have taken up the fight to close down Europe’s largest animal testing laboratory; HLS (Huntingdon Life Sciences).

Numerous undercover investigations have revealed the horrors taking place within the lab – animals being poisoned, primates being cut open without anaesthetic, puppies being punched in the face. HLS has become synonymous with cruelty and murder.

During the past decade, compassionate and fearless people have joined SHAC and dedicated themselves to saving those animals. We’ve all played our part in this revolutionary campaign. Through determination, anger and groundbreaking new tactics, we’ve decimated the finances and reputation of the massive multinational corporation HLS. With intelligence and hard work we’ve consistently found out which companies have been working with or funding HLS and then made them a target. As a result, hundreds of companies have pulled out of dealing with the lab, including some of the world’s largest and most powerful financial institutions.

Huntingdon Life Sciences have become the most protested animal testing lab in history. Thousands of actions have taken place against them – in one year alone, almost 800 demos took place.

Alongside the legal protests carried out by SHAC activists, there have been relentless and hard hitting ALF actions carried out against HLS’ suppliers, customers and financial backers. Courageous freedom fighters have risked breaking the law to commit direct action in the name of animals. In one example, 129 rabbits were liberated from Huntingdon’s supplier Highgate Rabbit Farm. On other occasions, 14 beagle dogs were liberated from HLS’ US site and a boat belonging to a Bank of America executive (they were providing financial services to HLS) was sunk, along with the message “money means nothing – life means everything”. These are just a few examples of the hundreds of actions that have taken place. Without the bravery and creativity of these activists, all of those rabbits and dogs would have been murdered in useless experiments and Bank of America would no doubt have continued supporting HLS.

It’s through this innovative combination of SHAC’s high profile lawful protest activity and the ALF’s unconventional, but highly effective tactics, that the campaign against Huntingdon Life Sciences has been so successful.

Right now HLS is over $100 million in debt, is struggling to win or keep customers, has steadily decreasing year end profits and is at serious risk of bankruptcy. The only reason they’ve survived this long is because of the UK government.

Due to vested interests in the vivisection and pharmaceutical industries and seeing the affect animal rights campaigners were having on HLS, the UK government stepped in and saved the laboratory from closure with a multi-million pound loan and private banking and insurance facilities. The authorities have also increasingly targeted SHAC campaigners with harassment, arrests, raids and imprisonment. Since 2007 dozens of activists have been arrested, with some receiving lengthy prison sentences – in some cases, up to 11 years. Campaigners have also been given extreme bail and licence conditions to silence them from speaking out against animal testing and isolate them from the animal rights movement.

SHAC was no longer just fighting HLS; we were fighting the government – a much larger and more powerful enemy.

Despite this, SHAC continued to resist repression and campaign against HLS, raising awareness of the 70 thousand animals locked away behind the barbed wire fences.

But, after more than 10 years of organising the SHAC campaign and having sent shockwaves throughout the entire vivisection industry, our opposition has evolved. The global animal abuse and legal landscapes have changed and so it’s time for us too, to change our tactics.

With the onslaught of government repression against animal rights activists in the UK, it’s time to reassess our methods, obstacles and opponent’s weaknesses, to build up our solidarity network for activists and to start healing the affects of repression.

Although we’re announcing the closure of the SHAC campaign, it will always be an important part of our history and a reminder of the ingenuity and power of the animal rights movement. SHAC will continue to inspire activists around the world to join the struggle against animal testing and take on those who profit from abuse and exploitation.

It’s our knowledge and ability to develop and focus our tactics in the most effective ways, which will continue to make us a threat to the animal exploitation industries.

With the fires of liberation and justice burning in our hearts, we look to the future.

Now the question everyone should be asking is…

What are we going to do next?

320451_3215594403657_1118290_n

Inside UF, 10,000 animals are estimated to be imprisoned and tortured on any given day. After 3 successful lawsuits and 4 federal complaints citing “fraud,” “incompetence” and a “culture of corruption” inside their labs, the University of Florida was named 1 of the 5 worst universities for animals in the country in April. Now we are taking our message directly to their alumni, benefactors, and other supporters and asking them to publicly denounce UF and begin to wash the blood from their hands.

This week’s target is the business community in Gainesville, FL- home of the University of Florida. . We need to tell them to stop funding archaic “science” and ban animal testing NOW!!
Please use the email blocks provided and send the sample letter below.
If you prefer, feel free to write your own letter ….

Please invite your friends to this event. WE NEED EVERY ACTIVIST TO PARTICIPATE. Thank you for all you do for the animals!

Bunny Alliance & Smash HLS join forces against Florida slavetraders

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

smash and bunny alliance

by Ron Roberts

On Wednesday July 23, South Florida Smash HLS linked up with The Bunny Alliance for a day of protests. First, eight dedicated activists visited the DHL office in Plantation, Florida to represent the thousands of primates transported by its proxy, ABX Air. DHL has a stated policy of not transporting live animals for experimentation. However, ABX Air, which was spun off from DHL, continues this horrendous practice. DHL is the largest customer of ABX and most of the planes of ABX are painted with the DHL colors and logo. DHL has the power to stop ABX from participating in this abuse and they cannot deny this connection. To underscore that point, activists who today entered the DHL facility noticed in the sign in register that the CEO and CFO of ABX was in the building that very morning! We exposed this unholy connection to DHL employees, both verbally and by handing out flyers. We then held a protest demonstration outside the building. loudly representing the helpless victims of DHL/ABX, despite the pouring rain. Considering the pain and suffering we are confronting, not one protester was deterred or complained about that minor inconvenience. It is time for all airlines to stop participating in this morally unconscionable activity and the animal rights community will continue to represent these hapless beings.

URGENT – LETTERS NEEDED NOW TO STOP FLORIDA LAB MONKEY FARM. Work continues to progress on Primera, Prelabs’ proposed monkey factory farm being built in Labelle, Florida, which would supply monkeys for US laboratories. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO BRING CONSTRUCTION TO A HALT.ADI’s undercover investigation of Prelabs’ Mauritian trading partner Biodia revealed nightmarish conditions, including baby monkeys torn from their mothers’ arms and tattooed without anesthetic, monkeys injected in the eyelids for TB tests, and animals captured from the wild and used as breeding machines. These monkeys face a lifetime of horrors in the laboratory, for needless tests that have proven to be unreliable and unnecessary.

With each day that passes, Primera moves closer to completion.
