Simulposted with Negotiation Is Over!
by NIO Florida (more pictures and other information HERE)
NIO Florida extends our sincere appreciation to the University of Florida for hiring all of the extra Gainesville police, University police, security guards, and assorted undercover thugs who helped us disrupt their event last night. But we need to give a special “shout out” to Matthew, the guard who was hired as Marino’s personal chaperon. He was instrumental in piquing the revelers’ curiosity who, otherwise, would have had no clue about what we were doing. Thank you, Matthew. You are now an honorary member of NIO Florida! And thanks to the University as well. We could never have afforded to pay for all the extra intrigue. We look forward to having you fund many more of our disruptions in the future.
Every single guest was “educated” with an elegant little party favor.
Our newest admin, Divine Destiny (Stephanie), led an effective and coordinated demonstration outside UF’s “Chocolate & Champagne” holiday gala
while Lisa Grossman & Camille Marino infiltrated the event. Although we have no pictures of the outside action, Stephanie and our comrades intercepted every single guest before Lisa & Camille took over inside.

UF was prepared and waiting for us. Lisa and Camille entered the event separately and, just coincidentally, they were the only two guests who were taken aside and searched. We have a sneaking suspicion that they knew who we were… especially since they set up a special table by the stairs that was “Reserved for Lisa Grossman & Camille Marino.” Advised that they could not enter the event with their terroristic paper party favors, the NIO Florida admins went outside and made an obvious showing of passing the contraband off to Stephanie while tearing the lining of Marino’s bag to smuggle half back inside.
Having gained entrance, waitresses dutifully followed Lisa & Camille into the ladies room and thugs glared at them from their posts in the lobby and inside the theater. Simultaneously, the protesters outside sprung into action.
The only uncontaminated food at the smorgasbord of steaming animal carcasses was the asparagus and olives. Marino and another vegan happened to have struck up a conversation over the two palatable veggies which seemed to frighten Matthew. He ran over to intercept the conversation asking the reveler “is everything alright here?” Marino walked away laughing. Seeming to tire of following her around the room, Matthew sat down with Lisa and Camille and asked to check their purses again. Lisa dutifully complied and allowed Matthew to shine a light in her bag and remove two or three favors. What were the other guests thinking? His attention then turned to Camille who responded “NO” and, while Lisa slipped away, proceeded to walk around the crowded room wishing everyone “happy holidays” while handing them a scary little sheet of rolled up paper. In a singularly comical turn of events, Matthew followed her around the room, frantically grabbing the scrolls out of the hands of the guests who had already received one upon entering the building. But we suspect everyone was far more curious about the information that the agents of repression were desperately trying to censor.
Camille is banned from UF property. Both the university police officer and she appear amused.
Matthew scolded Camille for her “inappropriate behavior” and, fortunately, as the music stopped, the guests only heard her retort that the inappropriate behavior was on the part of UF who was imprisoning and torturing animals only yards away. She then invited him to subdue her in the middle of the dance floor and drag her out. He didn’t like that option so Marino continued passing out favors, Matthew followed her retrieving them, and, finally, the police and undercover thugs converged — around 6 or 7 of them we think (we’re not sure) — and escorted Marino outside. While she was being trespassed and banned from the University, Lisa re-entered the affair and, with skill and ease, continued where Camille had left off, making her way around the room, smiling and wishing everyone “happy holidays,” and passing out party favors. Eventually, the repressive forces realized that they had lost track of Lisa and returned to escort her out of the event.
Lisa being banned from UF property.
As of last night, they were both banned from the campus and all UF property. Camille is now officially banned from both UCLA & UF. Animal-abusing parasites seem to think that bans, citations, injunctions, and arrests deter us. But the agents of repression only deepen our resolve and militancy. The laws that demand the enslavement and torture of sentient beings also demand our silence and complicity. The sadists fear exposure. We’re here to provide it.
We will demonstrate in the streets, we will infiltrate UF events, we will visit the abusers at their homes and churches, and we will galvanize an outraged community that demands an end to atrocity.
We will never back down until UF stops the killing.
