UF Monkeys Get National Attn at Veggie Pride Parade in NY & Dual Demos in FL

Sunday, March 30 was a huge day for the monkeys enslaved inside the University of Florida. Two days earlier, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a third federal complaint, this time for Booger, a sick, infected, and compromised macaque who was just approved for three more years of torture inside UF simply because the funding was available to do so. And despite a University-of-Florida-initiated media blackout in Gainesville to keep their crimes hidden from the public, activists are stepping up in greater numbers to make sure the world learns of the taxpayer-funded atrocities thriving in their dungeons.

Federal Complaint Filed: Shut down UF’s Primate Labs for repeated violations of state & federal law

Last week Eleventh Hour for Animals introduced “Booger,” a victim inside the University of Florida who was contaminated with German Measles from the day he was purchased from the now-defunct Primate Products in Miami. Never treated for this condition, he has steadily deteriorated, exhibiting increasing indications that he is descending into madness, his body compromised by repeatedly being force-fed poisons at the direction of Raymond J. Bergeron for over a decade, and, recently, he began throwing his own feces at his tormenters in a feeble attempt to fight back. In January, he was just approved for another 3 years of torture that will turn Bergeron’s pockets crimson red with the blood of this pitiful victim. The following complaint has just been filed with the USDA for 6 counts of federal violations and to demand that the primate torture industry inside UF be shut down permanently for the reasons enumerated below.

Public Denunciations of UF as they appear at the University of North Georgia

The following comments have been compiled by the distinguished professor of political science, Dr. Barry Friedman and appear below as an unaltered snapshot of the denounciations of the University of Florida that appear on the site of the University of North Georgia. UNG has not endorsed any of these statements and they appear solely because of the efforts of Freedom Fighter Barry Friedman…

A tortured UF monkey named “BOOGER” by his tormentors

Thanks to an ALF raid in the 1970s, this image of a monkey inside a UK lab was made public. The name “CRAP” tattooed on his forehead epitomized the indignities and degradation to which vivisectors gleefully subject their victims… And now in a throwback to this pitiful little primate, meet “BOOGER” courtesy of the University of Florida…

On January 10, 2002, capuchin monkey 120V (along with his four brothers) was sold into slavery at the University of Florida from the now-defunct Primate Products Inc. in Miami. Documents indicate that UF determined that all but one of these individuals arrived inside their labs already compromised and infected with rubella (German measles). Monkeys living in the wild do not contract measles. This infection is exclusive to nonhuman primates forced to live in captivity and is sometimes fatal. However, left wholly untreated inside UF, little 120V and his 3 brothers are regularly documented as still living with this infection over a decade later. Sometime after his enslavement, sick little 120V was light-heartedly baptized “BOOGER” by vivisector Raymond Joseph Bergeron who continues to get rich from his victims’ misery and blood.

Background – Vivisector Raymond J. Bergeron

For 21 years, Bergeron has been conducting iron chelation “studies” (i.e., he poisons monkeys with heavy metals and then force feeds them chemicals to try to resolve the condition he created). One of UF’s largest benefactors is said to have succumbed to hemochromatosis, an iron-overloading disease and so this “research” is clearly politically- and economically-motivated. Yet Bergeron received close to $700,000 from the NIH (that means fr

Dr. Barry Friedman’s Plea to Congress: Stop Funding UF Labs with My Taxes

Editorial Note: This afternoon, Dr. Barry Friedman mailed the letter that follows to a significant portion of the Congress of the United States. It is our hope that activists across the country will join this Eleventh Hour for Animals event on Facebook and use a modified version of his communication to send a plea to your own representatives and senators. Demand that our government stop funding atrocities inside the University of Florida immediately!

Dear Senator/Congressman ___,

I am writing to you about an atrocity happening inside the University of Florida that can occur only because it is being subsidized by the U. S. government. At any given moment, it is estimated by lab techs inside UF that more than 10,000 innocent animals comprised of every species including monkeys, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and more as well as fish are held captive and tortured inside their labs. Many of these animals are afforded zero protection under the federal Animal Welfare Act, adopted in 1962, specifically to exclude the most-abused species (i.e., rats, mice, and fish) from being recognized as “animals” under this outdated and deliberately special-interest-serving legislation. Invoking the Freedom of Information Act and Florida’s open-records law, animal-welfare activists have obtained photographs that offer a grim portrayal of the horrors to which the sadistic researchers are subjecting the confused, suffering animals. Some of these heartbreaking photographs appear on the enclosure. [attached as images in this post].

March 16, 2014: Our numbers are still small but growing steadily. And it is a great feeling to be surrounded by aggressive and committed activists who are always willing to put their boots on the ground and get the job done.

Marco Salemi – $MILLIONS of Monkeys Unaccounted for Inside University of Florida

by Camille A. Marino

Almost every single time I learn something new, it only serves to highlight how much more I still have to learn. This is especially true when it comes to the obscured and intentionally-convoluted animal torture industry inside the University of Florida for which taxpayers award them approximately $400 million annually.

For five years now, I have been filing open records requests for veterinary records and protocols for every single nonhuman primate that the USDA confirms is inside of UF after each inspection of their labs. Although the USDA is a client-based agency that was established in 1862 to promote the interests of industrial animal abusers, these rubber-stamp inspection reports exist to give the public the impression that there is some accountability for how their money is bein

NIO Exposes Ding’s Fraudulent Grants, MILLION$ Cut Off from UF Vivisection Labs

While we are still reconciling everything that has transpired over the past several years, it is clear today that NIO Florida (now Eleventh Hour for Animals) has had a considerable impact on UF’s ability to rape taxpayers and quietly get rich off the blood and screams of their nonhuman victims. And rather than engage any issue in which there is exists a decided public interest to procure facts, they chose to divert attention from themselves entirely. Rather, they embarked on a dedicated campaign of police intimidation and harassment, subjecting activists involved in this campaign to repeated arrests and incarcerations since 2010.

On October 4, 2010, NIO published our first expose documenting the brutal brain-mapping experiments in monkeys for which Ding was being awarded $270,060 annually as the Principle Investigator conducting “biomedical engineering” experiments under NIH Project Number: R01MH079388-03. These were annuity installments that were paid out every single year totaling roughly $3,000,000 under this award.

Sunday, March 16: University City Church of Christ – Protest UF’s Monkey Torture Business

Sunday March 16 at 9:30 – 11 am

4626 NW 8th Avenue
Gainesville, FL 32605

In the summer of 2012, the University City Church of Christ in Gainseville was given the option of taking an active stand against against taxpayer-funded animal abuse or, by virtue of their silence, giving their tacit approval to UF’s unconscionable crimes against God’s creations. Their silence over the last 18 months has rendered them a legitimate target and Eleventh Hour’s initiative to Free the UF Monkeys is continuing where it left off.

Neutrality only serves the interests of the oppressor. And it essential that we engage the community. They are either defenders of the monkeys or are guilty of allowing atrocity to continue. There is no other option.

Join us on Sunday, March 16, outside the University City Church of Christ as we continue to establish a sustained presence in Gainesville.
