Camille is a driven animal rights activist and a wonderful lady who I can honestly say that whenever I've contacted her she has ALWAYS taken time to contact me back. This whole thing revolves around her trying to stop Donal O'Leary from doing cruel experiments on dogs,,, many of who were pulled from animal shelters. Yes, this goes into the heart of Class B dealers. If our government would do their job and stop this sickness, Camille would NOT be in trouble right now

Statement from Camille Marino
Posted by Negotiation Is Over on February 5, 2012

Last night I was arrested in Gainesville, and am awaiting extradition to Michigan. I deeply appreciate the outpouring of love and support from all of you. Please do not let this minor inconvenience distract attention from the monkeys in prison at U.F. I am proud that 20-30 activists carried on the demo last night after Lisa and I were taken away.
Despite my incarceration, we will be suing U.F. this week to disclose the address of their monkey prisons. Then Lisa will get their vet records through 12/31/11. The campaign will go on with or without me and I will be back as soon as I can.

If you are like me and don't have a credit card, send me a message and I'll send you a mailing address to send your donation. I'm sending 40 dollars tomorrow, I wouldn't ask for money if I wasn't pitching in. If you could do even 1 or 2 dollars, those add up. I'm sending more because like I said, Camille has always been so kind to me and I want to help her now. She has lived her entire life helping our animals, now she needs a little help. Let's not turn our backs on this courageous woman

Thank you Kathy for setting this up. I know Camille will be grateful for this as we all are. EVERYONE of us could have this happen to them with the vague Animal Terrorist laws. If we all band together and help each person, then a person that is unselfish enough to end up in jail for helping animals will know they will be helped!!! Us animal activists have to stick together under this oppressive society!!

Thank you all, I wish we had the stats on how much has been raised so we could motivate everybody:(
But please even a few dollars if you can spare it, she does so much for the animals.
For my political friends, QUESTION? How can one be extradited on a warrant from Florida to Michigan (we all know Michigan has poor animal rights laws, they still allow Class B Dealers) when the person has NEVER stepped foot in Michigan?

Thank you all and thank you all who dug into your pockets to help. Janis comment really hits home. I fear for Camille, she really didn't do anything and she has never been in the State of Michigan. I fear that they are going to charge her with that unconstitutional A.E.T.A. bill. Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act. This bill was designed to do nothing more than to shut us all up. And I don't know how to shut up. Animal activists/lovers must all stand together.

It was only a matter of time before she got what she deserved. She is no hero. She is a tyrant, and this is what happens to bullies-eventually it catches up...and mark my words, it will also catch up to others in this little group sooner rather than later. Sorry for the animals that they have a bunch of jerks who think they know it all and like to hurt OTHERS claiming to be defending them. Using animal rights as an excuse to be a monster, doesn't pardon it- apparently. Hope you can take it, just like you dish it, Camille (and friends).......

Kathy Chadwell (354)
Tuesday February 7, 2012, 8:51 pm
Karma C, another faceless, empty cowardly profile condemning those who risk their freedom to save animals. You know her? You know any of us? Sit behind your computer spewing your hate but keep it off my threads. I don't tolerate those with no empathy or compassion.

didn't realize it wasn't ara. just assumed camille's supporters were animal people. and he wasn't slaughtering a pig, just talking about bringing one for an event.
