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.

Lisa Grossman at the Jax protest reports:
“We got quite a bit of support, got some flyers out (with the incredible new complaint by Eleventh Hour for Animals attached), got NO finger flipping us off , and talked about UF with a couple pedestrians. A reporter for the University of North Florida’s newspaper came by and interviewed us. http://unfspinnaker.com/ While I was being taped, Cathy confronted a woman who had pulled over crying! She was upset by our signs about the monkeys’ suffering she said and was further upset by the info on our Eleventh Hour For Animals flyer. Cathy talked with her and soon she was drying her eyes and able to drive ♥ So the young reporter was one of a kind to me!! She was genuinely disturbed and hurt FOR the monkeys after her interview with Camille yesterday and learning more today. It was the longest taping I’ve done with anyone…I so hope she is able to publish something.”

Some students appeared shaken upon learning about the monkey torture industry inside UF and we will be in touch with several. One anonymous student will be sporting her complimentary “fFree the UF Monkeys” t-shirt in the Communicore Building where she coincidentally works. Like most students, she had no idea that the monkeys are imprisoned and tortured in the dungeons of Communicore. We will be in close contact with that student as s/he works to recruit others from the Communicore vivisection labs for our next demo,
