Saturday, March 1 – Protest Monkey Abuse inside UF

Negotiation is Over - Florida

jacksonville demo - 2/15/14

March 1, 2014
12 PM TO 1:30 PM

In Gainesville at the corner of University Blvd and 13th St. (the hotel corner)

SIGNS & LITERATURE PROVIDED

Inside the University of Florida, at least 18 monkeys are still confined in tiny cages, being turned into drug addicts, being poisoned, maimed, and driven insane at the hands of mercenary vivisectors. At least 6 were murdered last year, brains extracted from their skulls, and their little bodies incinerated. We have repeatedly sued UF in court over the past few years; each time we were successful in having the courts compel them to disclose the details of their crimes against animals. In December, a federal complaint against UF cites “systemic incompetence and negligence” in their labs. On February 14, a second federal compliant was filed when they actually LOST one tortured macaque. More complaints for incompetence and negligence are forthcoming.

The University of Florida earns approximately $400 million in taxpayer-funded federal grants in addition to private funding for the sole purpose of torturing these innocent animals. We need you to stand with us and raise your voice! Make it clear we will not tolerate their lucrative crimes against the innocent anymore!

The on-the-ground initiative in Florida to raise awareness about the horrific crimes against nonhuman primates inside the University of Florida is expanding across the state. On Saturday, March 1, join activists as they congregate Gainesville. The following week, another protest will be held at their campus in Jacksonville. Simultaneous online actions will accompany both demonstrations.

    Dear Student,

    Inside UF, crimes against animals are being committed for money on a daily basis amidst an endemic culture of corruption! Will you take a stand
    At least 19 monkeys are confined in tiny cages, being turned into drug addicts, being poisoned, maimed and driven insane in the name of science when alternatives are available. At least 6 were exterminated, their brains ripped from their skulls, and their tiny bodies incinerated last year alone. They actually LOST a monkey in 2012!

    Among the 10,000 animals estimated by your own lab techs, more than 200 are forced to endure painful experiments without anesthesia also experimented on are horses, dogs and cats.

    Over the last four years, activists have successfully sued the
    University of Florida three times to compel transparency. And, thus far,two federal complaints have been filed citing systemic incompetence and negligence. More are forthcoming.

    The University of Florida earns approximately $400 million in
    taxpayer-funded federal grants in addition to private funding for the sole purpose of torturing these innocent animals. We need you to stand with us and raise your voice! Make it clear we will not tolerate their lucrative crimes against the innocent anymore!

    I can assure you that activists will not stand silently and let these
    atrocities against the innocent to continue in silence. So I am asking you today to make the ethical decision and take a stand.

    I am inviting you to join us at our next protest in Gainesville next
    week. Please make your voice count!
