Ask Blockbuster to stop funding cruel primate experiments at UF

BACKGROUND | SOURCE FACEBOOK

It’s hard to believe, but now we inform Blockbuster/Dish and its affiliates about what their exorbitant donations to the University of Florida buys- primate torture and archaic frankenscience. We want them to know they are absolutely compliant in hurting primates if they continue funding UF primate torture. Tell Blockbuster/Dish NO MORE DONATIONS TO UF until primate testing is banned!!

It has come to my attention that the University of Florida Foundation donors are responsible for providing $3.2 BILLION in support of UF and as we know they spend it on primate torture. Unbelievably, these donors include corporations who state they act to benefit society; Blockbuster Entertainment Corporation, National Geographic Society, The Humane Society of the United States, PetSmart, The NASCAR Foundation and Anheuser-Busch most recently famous for formally denouncing the horrible and cruel event SnapperFest, saying they love and respect all animals. These giant corporations are hemorrhaging money into UF’s Death Camp and they need to be held accountable for what their money funds!!!

Primates are imprisoned in the University of Florida labs, poisoned, sickened, and killed when alternatives are available. Among 1000s of other animals, more than 200 are forced to endure painful experiments without anesthesia. UF has lost a lawsuit to animal rights activists and the vet records of agony and torture are now being made public.

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Blockbuster/Dish,

I am writing today because I found your name on the University of Florida’s special bragging list –  the “honor roll” of generous donors. I want you to know I am going to ask my friends and your supporters in the coming weeks to enjoy movies from your competitors until you no longer support the University of Florida.

No place that does archaic experiments on animals can “clean up their act” –  they need to ban animal testing completely at their school. The whole country of Canada has recently committed to this ban in all of their universities, so a single university has no excuse. There is no work that you do that can make up for supporting an institution using living, feeling, innocent animals for agonizing experiments. I think the only way for you to keep your “good name” is to stop donating money to the University of Florida until they ban primate testing.

The following is a link to the UF website where you are honored for contributing to a university mired in controversy about their animal experiments:

See the latest from a UF whistle blower at the following:

UF chooses primate torture, most times using 2 and 3-year old primate toddlers, when there are thousands of non-animal alternatives available to teach and use right now:

The bottom line is that is what those involved with archaic animal research will be able to say is that it must be OK since large corporations give to UF. I think Blockbuster/Dish should pull their money from UF until UF bans animal testing. Please help me ensure that your donations do not become UF blood money by contacting UF today. Your letter can make a difference as a voice for innocent animals trapped in a brutal laboratory.

Thank you for your immediate attention to these innocent suffering animals.

The University of Florida email contacts:

Sincerely,


blockbuster/dish, do you know,
where your funding of UF goes.
to primate torture and psuedoscience.
please stop sending them money,
with us stand in defiance.
no living being should be experimented,
it’s only value, sadism, evil and
demented.
do not use your dollars to feed
this killing machine,
UF and its medieval methods
vicious and beyond obscene!

      Hi, Vicki ~

      All mine went through, but I sent them yesterday; I can guess that since they have been receiving so many protests that they have disabled their email addresses. Thanks for your efforts nonetheless.
