February 4: Funeral for Monkeys Murdered by UF will be held at “Gator Gala”

On Saturday evening, alumni will gather in Gainesville to celebrate “Gator Gala.”

Simultaneously, a funeral will be held for 2A4 & Louis, two monkeys tortured to death by UF vivisectors. Activists are encouraged to wear black and dress appropriately.

This will be a peaceful demonstration with a closed-casket ceremony. A somber eulogy will be delivered.

Cyber Action Monday: Stop the Flow of Money to UF – Week 8

The University of Florida Gators Clubs around the world support and fund animal torture at UF, even though non-animal alternatives are available and used world wide. Primates are imprisoned in their labs, routinely terrorized, poisoned, sickened, and killed.

by NIO Florida

This week’s target is the Central Florida Gator Club.

Last week this club published a warning about NIO activists and our anti-viv campaign on the front page of their website. Days later, an anonymous 6-page “Neighborhood Crime Watch” letter was mailed to each of Camille Marino’s neighbors warning them that she is an “Animal Rights Terrorist.” The Central Florida Gator Club is located in Orlando. Interestingly, the “Neighborhood Watch” letter was mailed from Orlando… both 60 miles south of Marino. read more

Bergeron & Roberts forcefed monkeys toxic waste, gave okay for children to play in toxic dirt

by NIO Florida

The state of Georgia wanted to turn an arsenic-poisoned waste site into a little league baseball field so they commissioned the University of Florida to conduct bioavailability studies. Always eager to profit from animal suffering, UF dispatched Raymond J. Bergeron and Stephen Robertsto conduct the torture sessions in which they forcefed monkeys arsenic-poisioned mud. In turn, the state of Georgia was provided with the results they had hoped for which allowed them to go forward with their project. So, now, little Johnny is eating arsenic-laced dirt every time he slides into home plate, compliments of UF. read more

UF “encourages” its “alumni” to spam activists!

by NIO Florida

Profiting from monkey torture appears to have become a public relations nightmare for the University of Florida. Now that their secrets are out, they are squirming and writhing trying to keep their benefactors and the public from hearing them.

One after another, their Gator Nation networks are disabling the emails of entire clubs. Unfortunately for them, several more Gators already denounced UF over the weekend and those declarations will be published later this week. In addition, a stunning post that went up on the Central Florida Gator Club on Friday urges their alumni to not read emails about UF’s monkey experiments and, in fact, encourages its members to spam activists!!! Isn’t spam illegal??? My how the once-pristine institution appears to have slipped in a puddle of blood and fallen in the mud… read more

Cyber Action Monday: Stop the Flow of Money to UF – Week 7

This week’s target is the Windy City Gator Club. This Chicago club boasts 4200 Gators in Chicago. That’s $210,000 per year, just from paying basic dues, going straight into UF’s prison camp coffers. There’s no telling how much more comes from donations or lifetime memberships from Windy City Gator Club members. We need to make this week the most productive UF Gator Club action so far to stop this flow of money. Tell them to stop paying dues and donating until UF bans animal testing!

Cleveland Students Discouraged from Applying to the University of Florida

an imprisoned and victimized macaque

by Linda Beane (The Examiner, Original Title: “His Name Was Louis”)

Today I am writing about the future of our cities youth and their exposure to a compassionate and empathic world where animals are treated as respected beings not as commodities. We all want great happiness and success for our children, this starts with their education. Though we have a common experience and familiarity in our offspring’s first twelve years of schooling, once they enter college their final impressions and decisions will be formatted under the tollage of a variety of diverse educators.
So how does this become an issue of animal welfare? Very simple. As our young students select their college and then their specialized fields of education some of the classes in the student’s curriculum might require studies that are specialized in research, biology, sciences and other similar subjects. Some of these may present with the practice of vivisection, an archaic and dubious method of teaching, one in which helpless, sentient beings are forced to submit to painful, deadly and terrifying tests. Some of these animals die after one experiment, other creatures are used year after year until they finally decease from the misery and constant trauma. read more

A Monkey named Louis: UF gave him no pain relief for broken hip, made him suffer and deteriorate for a full year

In August of 2010, we learned about a monkey named Louis. A lab tech pleaded with UF to release him to a sanctuary and stop his suffering. While the lab tech was on vacation, Louis was murdered and incinerated on July 9, 2010. UF wanted to ensure that the world would never see his deteriorated condition or know his story. In October of 2010, NIO’s campaign against UF commenced. Now we know that Louis was allowed to languish in torment with a broken hip and never given any pain relief. His records document callous neglect, violations of the law, and incompetence. In death, Louis has a voice. read more

Members of the Gator Nation Denounce the University of Florida

by NIO Florida

The following members of the Alumni Association and Deep South Gator Clubs have been persuaded by this week’s outreach exercise to issue the public denunciations of the University of Florida that follow below.

We will be maintaining weekly lists of members of Gators who come forward to work with us to end primate experimentation at UF:

  • “I, Jeff Ozer, denounce primate experimentation at the University of Florida.” -Saturday, January 14, 2012
  • “I, Lauren Ettlinger, denounce primate experimentation at the University of Florida.” -Wednesday, January 18, 2012
  • “I, Lorrie Dixson, denounce primate experimentation at the University of Florida.” -Wednesday, January 18, 2012

by NIO Florida

At the University of Florida, Stephen Roberts has had a long and storied career poisoning a variety of his imprisoned victims to death. But, since our objective is to win release for the primates, we will confine the discussion to Roberts’ crimes against monkeys.

About 18 months ago before we started this campaign, we saw a video presentation at an undisclosed location in Gainesville given by an activist who worked in the labs. We saw images of every species imaginable, some so exotic we had never heard of them — all imprisoned in UF’s dungeons. We learned about the insidious experiments to which each was subjected. But there is one story that has stood out for us and, at this juncture, we have a personal connection with “Louis,” one of Roberts’ victims. read more
