The University of Florida must be persuaded to abandon the archaic and torturous animal experiments from which they reap hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Therefore, we must begin to apply systematic and sustained pressure on them, their benefactors, their sponsors and the UF community worldwide. Sadly, we’ve found that many people believe primate experimentation is a thing of the past and they are horrified when they learn of primate torture currently underway in their labs. Additionally, unbeknownst to the public, hundreds of other animals are subjected to painful experiments without anesthesia and left to intentionally languish in agony. A formal lawsuit is now pending to compel the university to disclose records to taxpayers documenting the abuses visited on primates in their labs… We encourage activists to consider joining a global campaign against UF by protesting their alum and benefactors in your area.
THIS WEEK’S ACTION
The Washington, DC Gator Club. There are 100 Gator Clubs around the world whose members are UF alumni and friends. They all need to know the truth about the atrocities they fund! Sponsoring a sports team is fine but until UF bans animal testing, club members are sponsoring the heinous suffering in UF labs… and now we are telling the world about their CHOICE.

Dear UF Alum & Friends,
Gators Clubs around the world are unknowingly supporting and funding animal torture at UF. Primates are imprisoned in their labs, poisoned, sickened, and killed. More than 200 other animals are forced to endure painful experiments with no anesthesia. They are intentionally left to languish in agony until they die. In addition to being unresponsive for over a year about apparently-fraudulent grants, a formal lawsuit is now pending to compel disclosure of public primate vivisection records for taxpayers’ scrutiny.
There are non-animal alternatives available, but they make it much more difficult to secure millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded grants that are specifically earmarked for “invasive” and “painful” animal tests. Negotiation Is Over and other animal rights activists have been working for over a year to expose UF’s horrific primate experiments as well as the misappropriation of federal grants. (For further information, see: http://universityoffraud.wordpress.com/)
Testing on innocent restrained animals is archaic, painful and scientific fraud!
Here’s an example of the myriad of technologically-advanced alternatives available:
“VaxDesign’s groundbreaking Modular IMmune In vitro Construct (MIMIC) system uses human cells to create a working dime-sized human immune system for testing the safety and effectiveness of HIV/AIDS vaccines.”
I strongly urge you to consider withdrawing your support until UF chooses to adopt a policy consistent with a commitment to progressive science and respect for all animals. You can persuade UF to operate with integrity.
