Saturday, April 28

An outraged citizens group emerged in Gainesville over the weekend to launch a surprise offensive against primate torture at UF.

The group had an energized and productive demo at a still-undisclosed location. Many in attendance report that people were “shocked and disgusted” upon learning that UF imprisons, terrorizes, and murders monkeys with their tax dollars.

NIO Florida regrets that we were unable to join our new comrades yesterday, but look forward to strengthening each other’s efforts in the future.

Details of yesterday’s action will be updated as we learn more.

Sunday, April 29

This morning’s 9 a.m. demonstration at the University City Church of Christ — church of the Gators – was an extraordinary success. The congregation is composed of UF alumni and faculty, several of their vivisectors, and community members from the surrounding area.

Parishioners met a spectacle this morning as they arrived to a church being “protected” by four police cruisers. Activists were ejected from the property and a minister named “Mike” retrieved all leaflets that had been distributed. When asked if he thought God approved of monkeys being tortured for money, he replied “God doesn’t approve of many things.” Rather noncommittal for a man of the cloth. We were relegated to the back of the church where all traffic entering or exiting needed to pass through our lines. It was reminiscent of other activist groups who’s tactics NIO hugely admires.

Many who came for the later 10:20 a.m. service took our literature.

We thoroughly enjoyed being flipped off, told to “go fuck yourselves,” and “go get a job” by these devout Christians — they could not contain their anger at our presence. It was apparent that monkey murder at UF was the subject of today’s sermon and every single person in that overflowing church knew exactly why we were there. They support the atrocities were and were very uncomfortable about having to face us. They trickled out all morning to confront us, curse at us, and, our favorite by far, was the old gentleman that Marino smiled and greeted with a “good morning, do you know what UF is doing with your tax money?” He replied with a Nazi salute and a “Zeig Heil!” The exchange descended rather rapidly from there. 😀

Because we felt so welcome and at home with all the monkey-torture-supporting alumni in this congregation, NIO Florida is looking forward to our next action at this location. In fact, several of us are thinking of joining the worshipers in the future.

If you worship at the University City Church of Christ, then you should take a second look at those kneeling to your left and right. They may be vivisectors from the University of Florida or part of their extended team of monkey murderers.

For those who cannot attend our community outreach exercise this Sunday, please feel free to contact the University City Church of Christ and suggest that the vivisectors in their congregation be identified publicly.

I’m certain we all want to hear them explain how God condemns animal torture unless, of course, the atrocities are committed by sadists employed by UF wearing bloody white lab coats: http://www.universitycitychurchofchrist.org/Contact-Us.html

On February 4, the University of Florida orchestrated Camille Marino’s arrest, as well as that of an associate, Lisa Grossman, at a protest in an attempt to shut down the most damaging action NIO Florida had staged, thus silencing dissent and neutralizing the voice of the animals.

The records that Marino won in a lawsuit against UF on December 30 document unspeakable torture perpetrated on monkeys, as well as the unending nightmare of terror, misery, pain, and hopelessness in which these primates are entombed. Exposing their crimes within our community is essential. But it is even more vital that we destroy UF’s reputation and public support by effectively infusing the truth into the local community consciousness.

Therefore, NIO’s official response to UF’s attempt to silence our voice on February 4 is to escalate our tactics: we are going to church with the purveyors of death.

While the vivisectors and faculty gather to worship God in the bosom of their community, NIO will be outside making certain that their community learns the exact nature of the atrocities in graphic detail as their veterinary records document.

SOME OF US ARE WILLING TO GO TO JAIL TO EXPOSE THE TRUTH!

PLEASE STAND WITH US AS WE SHOW THEIR COMMUNITY EXACTLY WHY!

Because of the unusual early hour at which this demo will take place, activists are invited to spend Saturday night with Camille and travel to Gainesville together on Sunday morning. For further info, contact Camille at (352) 396-4132 or camille@negotiationisover.net

Signs and leaflets will provided.

The names of alumni and private benefactors from the University of Florida’s College of Pharmacy have been leaked to NIO Florida. These are the people who support or fund animal experimentation. Each is deeply entrenched in the vivisection complex. Each is directly responsible for the torture the monkeys are forced to endure. Each is deemed an enemy combatant. Each should be made as uncomfortable as possible. And all should know that it is their association with UF that has earned them our attention.

This week’s sampling of benefactors is embedded in the vivisection complex around the world.
