Eleventh Hour for Animals

Freedom’s Journey: Liberated Pig Takes First Steps into His New Life

In the early morning hours of January 6, 2018, NIO Florida activists liberated a pig who was left out in the freezing cold, locked in a filthy cage with no food & water. We never intended to take off our masks and go public, but we needed to raise money to place him in a good home. Today Freedom met other pigs for the first time in his life and took his first steps into his new life. More pictures of the liberation may be viewed here. And a video of his entire journey follows. This truly was a team effort. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.

Press Release: Cop Murders Dog – Community Demands Justice

PRESS RELEASE – for immediate release
January 23, 2018
(distributed through national and local media outlets)

Last week, on January 16 at a little after 8:30 pm, a beloved family member, a Caucasian Shepherd named Wakoda, was shot four times in his own backyard by his next door neighbor, Clayton Police Captain James Herring. Maya Asterilla, Wakoda’s guardian, was home at the time. Another of Wakoda’s guardians, Zebulon Moore, arrived home to find his nearly-lifeless companion animal and it was he who advised Ms. Asterilla of the situation. When police noticed Maya come to the window to investigate, they finally decided to knock on her door. Contrary to police reports, no one had called her or come to the home until after 9 pm. Three officers from the Benson Police Department responded to a call from the off-duty captain. They promptly wrote up an investigation report, fabricating some details and ignoring others, and filed the document with a final notation, “case closed.” The good ole boy network was alive and well in North Carolina that night.

Exclusive: Cop Murders Dog, Police Cover Up Exposed – TAKE ACTION

Beloved Caucasian Shepherd, Wakoda

On January 16, 2018 at approximately 8:41 pm, three Benson County police officers responded to an animal complaint at the home of Clayton Police Captain James “Richie” Herring. Herring had fatally shot his neighbor’s dog, a majestic and gentle Caucasian Shepherd, four times. He alleged that the dog was aggressive and that he was in fear for his and his children’s safety. Photographic Evidence illustrated below, however, demonstrates that Wakoda was assaulted on his side of the fence, in his own backyard, and that the police version of events are blatantly fabricated. The officers wrote up their report attached here, and ended it with “case closed.”

Help us get Liberated pig to her permanent sanctuary

In the early morning hours of Saturday, January 6, a group of NIO Florida activists liberated a pig from a miserable life of isolation inside a cage. She was left out in the freezing cold with no protection, no water, and little food. Our only concern was to get her to safety and give her a chance to have a good life with other pigs.

Urgent: Directory of Abusers with Addresses, Contact Info, Maps & More

Those who harm their innocent need to be exposed. And the state has provided us with a database that gives us the addresses, maps, contact information, names and addresses of their neighbors, as well as family relations — and it’s all public information.

Before the state removes this information, please share it widely so that everyone can locate the information they need and copy it into a pdf.

UF withholding animal experimentation records – Help Eleventh Hour for Animals Sue

(awarded by the court on 12/30/11, Camille Marino v. UF)

Since I got back online four months ago, I filed numerous records requests with the University of Florida — not a single request has been honored and their game-playing has actually reached an entirely new level. I am in receipt of “disappearing” files — heavily-redacted partial records that were released and then “expired” and are no longer available. UF is under fire right now for their dishonest handling of records relating to other projects; possibly even providing fraudulent documents. And it is imperative that we pursue this issue in a timely manner to ensure maximum damage to their reputation. I will be meeting with my lawyer, Marcy I. LaHart, in early December in Gainesville. At that point, we will sue UF or pursue any other legal remedy we deem appropriate to take possession of the animal experimentation records. read more

How “Love & Peace” Kills Animals

“Species membership is not a valid reason to place anyone outside the circle of moral compassion or beyond the reach of effective defense.”

~Lindy Greene

“The time for civil discourse has expired.” ~Camille Marino

by Lindy Greene & Camille Marino

Globalization is predicated upon slave labor. Both animate and inanimate resources are expended to the point of exhaustion in pursuit of profit. The planet is being plundered to serve the self-anointed “superior species.” And it remains abundantly clear that our current course is unsustainable. Feeding and lubing the machinery of the entire system are the misery and blood of its vast nonhuman slave force. We were taught twenty centuries ago the myopic and destructive view that the other species with whom we share the Earth evolved for the sheer and sole purpose of serving us and that such servitude is the birthright of the privileged “master race.” Whether it’s factory farming contributing 37% of methane gases to global warming according to the UN or the federally-funded animal experimentation industry, it is extremely difficult to find any segment of the economy that does not commoditize and exploit members of other species for entertainment, sport, fashion, food, or testing. Subverting the integral animal economy is vital if we will ever free ourselves from the entrenched teamwork of corporate overlords and unprincipled governments.

The marriage of corporation and state, Mussolini’s definition of fascism, is epitomized by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – a group of corporate lobbyists and elected officials who serve big business profiteers. ALEC is the engine running the multi-billion-dollar prison / industrial complex. It’s single-minded mission in that endeavor is to maximize profits by keeping citizens jailed, on parole or probation, and otherwise inextricably ensnared in the judicial system. And ALEC is also the author of the federal 2007 Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, the language of which conveys that any animal rights activist who affects the profits of an animal industry can be prosecuted for terrorism. Thus, any effective activist may be a terrorist by statute. And, at the state level, we see political free speech consistently reframed by the courts as terrorism with the speakers charged as stalkers. (By the way, there are actual laws on the books declaring “edgy speech” to be just “political hyperbole” and perfectly legal. Those same books also state that First Amendment activity does not fall under the legal definition of “stalking.” But judges apply (or fail to apply) laws as they see fit. It costs thousands of dollars to file motions, which are almost universally denied, for review of their decisions.) And, according to the New York Times, ALEC is behind the state legislatures’ trend to make photographing industrial animal abuse a crime (“ag-gag” laws). Let this penetrate: Animal abuse is not only protected, but exposing it is prosecutable. (Such punitive measures are not new. Anyone caught in the antebellum South helping Black slaves to escape from the plantations risked hanging.)

Let’s help Infectious Disease Enthusiast Drusano celebrate his 68th birthday! :)

Simulposted with Camille Marino

Time is running out so let’s put our heads together and come up with something special to help vivisector George Louis Drusano, an infectious disease enthusiast, celebrate his 68th birthday next Tuesday, August 22. 🙂

Although UCF Sergeant Freeman called to assure me that Drusano is not giving monkeys infection diseases on UF’s campus in Orlando, where George lives and works, he is collecting roughly $2.5 million taxpayer dollars for that express purpose. Presumably the fact that his victims are being tortured in Gainesville and other locations is assumed by some to mitigate his culpability. read more

This morning’s call from law enforcement proves what I already knew…

August 14, 2017

Five weeks after winning my first lawsuit against the University of Florida, UFPD Sergeant Jeff Moran personally orchestrated my very first arrest at a UF Protest in 2012. Documents obtained through public records requests demonstrate that he also orchestrated two extraditions to get me out of Florida, the first torturous excursion cost UF a grand total of $536.50. Having failed to silence me, he then set out on a mission to extinguish my work from the internet and attempted to have me imprisoned for 5 years for the banned video, Defiance is a Virtue. This online video which he alleged constituted a probation violation was reported in the news as my having committed “wire fraud.” Jeff Moran tried every dirty trick to shut down Eleventh Hour for Animal’s campaign to expose primate experimentation at UF.
