The University of Florida fought for 14 months to keep the torturous experiments to which they subject monkeys hidden from the public. Pursuant to winning their lawsuit against UF on December 30, 2011, activists in Florida are now making these horrifying records public. We are now calling on the international community to be heard.
Please read this petition and commit to working to discourage students and parents in your region from applying to UF until they abandon primate experimentation.
We, the undersigned, confirm that we will actively discourage students and parents in our region from applying to the University of Florida until their barbaric crimes against primates are discontinued.

As of February 1, 2012, NIO Florida has released three sets of records. Many more will be forthcoming and all will be available for public inspection at Vivileaks: http://universityoffraud.wordpress.com/vivileaks-uf/. Among these records:
*One documents the harrowing ordeal of one Capuchin monkey who was kidnapped from his home in the jungles of Guyana, was terrorized for 17 years in UF's underground prisons, and he finally died in 2009 as his tormenters tried to subdue him for the last time.
*Another documents the short life of a macaque purchased from Alpha Genesis. Louis lived in his cage with a broken hip -- his leg was detached from his hip -- and received no pain relief whatsoever. He was in so much agony that he suffered from chronic anorexia and vomiting throughout his incarceration. Finally, he was murdered in 2010 because, as UF notes in their records, "he could not be used."
*Documentation has been revealed detailing the ordeal of five monkeys who were forcefed toxic dirt gathered from five waste sites around Florida.
*Records will be published shortly documenting monkeys that were poisoned, blinded, and tormented in unspeakable and unconscionable ways for the durations of their lives. Some died after months, some decades. Many are still enduring their despicable and torturous imprisonments.
Thank you for taking a stand against institutionalized animal abuse.
