Sunday, July 8, 2012 – Activists infiltrate services during “Weekend of Outrage”

In the summer of 2012, the University City Church of Christ in Gainseville was given the option of taking an active stand against against taxpayer-funded animal abuse or, by virtue of their silence, giving their tacit approval to UF’s unconscionable crimes against God’s creations. Their silence over the last 18 months has rendered them a legitimate target and Eleventh Hour’s initiative to Free the UF Monkeys is continuing where it left off.

The University of Florida is going for an all-out media blackout to keep their crimes hidden from the community in Gainesville.
The most pivotal moment of today’s demonstration took place at this pole. A young man pulled a flyer from it and stood reading it intently, flanked by two companions. A protestor approached him. With seething hostility and rage dripping from his words, he said “Get Away From Me.” This was clearly an individual who is intimately connected with monkey torture inside UF. And we can confidently infer that his demeanor is representative of the culture inside their vivisection labs. They hate Eleventh Hour. That means we’re doing our job!
With UF’s championship basketball team scheduled to start playing at 4 pm this afternoon, our protestors were strategically placed on four corners of an intersection with very heavy foot and motor vehicle traffic. One newspaper took some pictures and were given a flyer as they were stopped at a light and we had a chance to speak. And WUFT-TV set up cameras and gave Eleventh Hour an opportunity to speak about the monkeys for Gainesville viewers. That interview will air on Monday at 6 pm and we will post the video when it is published.

The long-tailed macaque is native to the jungles of Southeast Asia. But, unless we get him out, Calvin will never know freedom, never climb a tree, and never feel the sun warm his little body. Assigned Holocaust No. CX99, Calvin was born into captivity at the notorious Alpha Genesis on June 1, 2003 and sold into slavery at the University of Florida on February 25, 2008.

It was a tremendous week for the monkeys being tortured inside UF. And, working together, it’ll be a day to celebrate when they’re finally released!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FEBRUARY 14, 2014
COMPLAINT CITES CORRUPTION AND NEGLIGENCE IN UF MONKEY LABS
Moments ago, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a second federal complaint with the USDA for violations of the Animal Welfare Act citing a culture of corruption inside the University of Florida and a companion culture of negligence that permeates their nonhuman primate experimentation program. The complaint filed by the group’s founder, Camille A. Marino, relates solely to a 6-monkey “research” study funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the shocking details of which we reported days ago. Among the documented violations: the “scientific” rationale offered by UF for the torment visited on six macaques was simply that the Fox Foundation was willing to give them the money to do so when they couldn’t find funding elsewhere; there are up to 5-month lapses where some of the monkeys were neither monitored nor was any care whatsoever recorded; and they actually LOST a monkey.

The Michael J. Fox foundation wholly funded a study in which six macaque monkeys were bought, imprisoned, and tortured inside the University of Florida, allegedly in the pursuit of a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. It is interesting to note, however, that in the Protocol (i.e., the business plan that governs how the torture will be funded), the principle investigator, vivisector Ronald Mandel, states that the alleged “research” is considered so scientifically invalid and useless that it “has lead to large grants being rejected from other groups…” Apparently without doing much research themselves, however, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, provided the money to the vivisectors to determine if a drug called doxycycline will penetrate the blood/brain barrier in primates. Vivisector Mandel goes a little further to confirm that this is an exercise in lucrative junk science when he states that “there is no therapeutic reason to give dox to humans!”
