International Empty the Tanks protest

This is a day for everyone around the world to stand up against marine mammal captivity. The abuse and exploitation of these sentient beings has no place in the 21st century.


WHEN: Saturday May 24th, 10am


WHERE: SeaWorld Orlando


Signs & banners provided, just bring yourself, friends & family :)


On May 24th 2014, protests and educational events will be held all over world in front of marine mammal parks and aquariums. If the park is exploiting marine mammals for entertainment and profit then we want people out front creating awareness. The only way to close their doors for good is to get the general public to stop buying tickets. We need your voices and your dedication to seeing an end to the captivity industry.



More details to follow as we get closer to the event.

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know that there will be a fun fundraising event next Sunday the 1st for the video truck you saw at the protest. The truck is part of a non-profit org called Take Your Blinders Off. We hope you can join us! The details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1406996879571364

      There are a number of grocery stores, restaurants and strip-malls at either the corner of International Drive and Central Florida Parkway or the corner of Central Florida Parkway and Sea Harbor Drive. Because the social media pages are open, we do not want to list specific businesses that could cause problems with towing activist's cars.

    Do any of you guys know anyone that can foster a cat or two until we can find them homes? or any of you guys looking to adopt a sweet cat that hasn't had a home in a long time? they are super sweet and recently I found out they've been getting abused, please guys if ANYONE can help out in any way it would really mean a lot. Thank you.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
