Speak for Tillikum the whale in downtwon Orlando FRIDAY

Please join local PETA supporters in speaking up for Tilikum, an orca who is currently being held captive at SeaWorld Orlando. Saturday, November 9, marks the 30th anniversary of Tilikum’s capture and removal from his family in the wild, and we are inviting you to take a stand for him by urging SeaWorld to let him retire and be released to a sanctuary. [SeaWorldofhurt.com] To learn more, watch this video about animals imprisoned at SeaWorld. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYKepW15MEk]

When: Friday, November 8th, 12:00 Noon-1:00 p.m.

Where: 206 S Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32801 (Please meet at the SW corner of Church St and Orange Ave; see this map.) [http://goo.gl/maps/EO1vl]

Posters and leaflets will be provided. Note that reserved parking will not be available, and please be prepared for the weather. Outreach events are a fun and effective way to help animals as well as meet local advocates, so before you go, check out PETA's outreach tips [

    I was just wondering if there might be more participation if this were held on Sat. downtown when the anniversary is dated. Weekday events really leave the majority of us out. Best of luck. I will be writing in support of this release. Thank you for all you do in this meetup.

      HI Victoria, today's event downtown was for media (weekdays are best for media with weekENDS having Skelton crews in newsrooms) Tomorrow there is going to be a protest AT SeaWorlld on the anniversary starting at 10am. Hope to see you there :)
