Simulposted with Negotiation Is Over!
UF was prepared and waiting for us. Lisa and Camille entered the event separately and, just coincidentally, they were the only two guests who were taken aside and searched. We have a sneaking suspicion that they knew who we were… especially since they set up a special table by the stairs that was “Reserved for Lisa Grossman & Camille Marino.” Advised that they could not enter the event with their terroristic paper party favors, the NIO Florida admins went outside and made an obvious showing of passing the contraband off to Stephanie while tearing the lining of Marino’s bag to smuggle half back inside.
Having gained entrance, waitresses dutifully followed Lisa & Camille into the ladies room and thugs glared at them from their posts in the lobby and inside the theater. Simultaneously, the protesters outside sprung into action.
The only uncontaminated food at the smorgasbord of steaming animal carcasses was the asparagus and olives. Marino and another vegan happened to have struck up a conversation over the two palatable veggies which seemed to frighten Matthew. He ran over to intercept the conversation asking the reveler “is everything alright here?” Marino walked away laughing. Seeming to tire of following her around the room, Matthew sat down with Lisa and Camille and asked to check their purses again. Lisa dutifully complied and allowed Matthew to shine a light in her bag and remove two or three favors. What were the other guests thinking? His attention then turned to Camille who responded “NO” and, while Lisa slipped away, proceeded to walk around the crowded room wishing everyone “happy holidays” while handing them a scary little sheet of rolled up paper. In a singularly comical turn of events, Matthew followed her around the room, frantically grabbing the scrolls out of the hands of the guests who had already received one upon entering the building. But we suspect everyone was far more curious about the information that the agents of repression were desperately trying to censor.
As of last night, they were both banned from the campus and all UF property. Camille is now officially banned from both UCLA & UF. Animal-abusing parasites seem to think that bans, citations, injunctions, and arrests deter us. But the agents of repression only deepen our resolve and militancy. The laws that demand the enslavement and torture of sentient beings also demand our silence and complicity. The sadists fear exposure. We’re here to provide it.
We will never back down until UF stops the killing.
