A Student’s Questions

A student wrote to NIO to express his/her concerns about our campaign geared toward dissuading students from considering entering fields that involve animal torture. In the following exchange, Lisa Grossman responds and dispels several misconceptions:

Student

“Why not target the institution? Thats what I dont understand about your campaign… I know people just trying to get degrees in science. These students usually are poor and just trying to get a degree. Why not go to the level where they actually make decisions? These kids are just trying to get a degree, they don’t choose the cirrriculum in their given major. I’m a ________ student and you have made me fear for my friends’ safety.. what do you plan to do with this info?” read more

AMP’s Official Advice to deal with activists: “there is little one can do”

In response to a recent Security Advisory about NIO issued by the AMP, several students responded seeking guidance on how to deal with animal rights activists on campus. Here is the form letter they received:

From: Jacquie Calnan – Americans for Medical Progress [amp@amprogress.org]

Dear ______,

I can understand how such protests may be upsetting to you, but as long as they are conducted legally, there is little one can do, beyond refusing to accept the leaflets that are being handed out and simply walking past the protestors. read more

by Erin Jester (Independent Alligator)

A member of the extremist animal rights group Negotiation is Over may face criminal charges for violating a trespass order by distributing fliers on campus offering $100 for personal information about UF researchers who use animals in experiments.

UF police confirmed that Lisa Grossman, 50, of Jacksonville, entered the Cancer and Genetics Research Building July 9 to distribute the fliers.

Grossman, along with fellow NIO member Camille Marino, was issued a trespass warning Dec. 18 after staging a protest during a fundraiser inside the Curtis M. Phillips Center.

University Police Department Maj. Brad Barber said campus police are taking all necessary steps to secure campus research facilities. read more

UF Security Alert: If you see an NIO extremist, call police immediately

The following email was received by NIO early this morning and we have just been given the express permission of our embedded colleague, Dr. X, to publish this portion of his/her commentary:

“… [UF] has never encountered such a threat of public exposure as the NIO activists currently present… Dr. Guzick’s directive to ‘avoid contact with suspicious persons’ is eerily reminiscent of one of the most tragically-failed campaigns in U.S. history which was designed to protect children from sexual predators in the early 1970s… the flawed advice was responsible for grooming an entire generation victims… The university does not know how to respond either, but fears students may panic… Additionally, your ‘unpublished’ interview with the Gainesville Sun reporter was shared with his UF associates. Dr. Guzick’s statement follows.” -X read more

TO: AMP Academic, Security and Law Enforcement Contacts

As many of you have heard by now, a few academic institutions in New York City, Florida and Michigan were leafleted over the weekend by a very small, militant animal rights group, Negotiation is Over (NIO). The leaflets sought information and contact details about “biomed students.” A copy is appended below.

This is believed to be the next phase in an NIO campaign to which we alerted the academic community in April. (To receive a copy of our 4-page advisory and guidance, email AMP.) read more

Vivisection Students: Welcome to your new curriculum!

On July 8 & 9, 2011, NIO activists in New York and Florida began to place bounties on the heads of biomed students & aspiring animal torturers. Our infiltrations were coordinated with several orientation events and festivities. Since NIO FL is banned from UF, some of us choose to not reveal ourselves in disguise nor will we reveal the identities of any of our comrades in other states. Just know, the war has begun. We infiltrated every university area from where we were banned. We went to bus stops, christian reading rooms, taco bell, and various student hangouts. In Florida, we even gave the “reward” flyers to biomed students coming out of their torture sessions. The extremists have arrived… read more
