Protest "The Cruelest Show on Earth" in Duluth

In the Ringling Brothers Circus, elephants are beaten, hit, poked, prodded, and jabbed with sharp hooks, sometimes until bloody.

Constant travel means that animals are confined to boxcars, trailers, and trucks for days at a time in extremely hot or cold weather, often without access to basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinarian care. Elephants, big cats, bears, and primates are confined to cramped and filthy cages in which they eat, sleep, drink, defecate, and urinate, all in the same place.

In November 2011, Ringling was fined $270,000 by the USDA for multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act. This is the largest fine ever assessed against a circus under the Animal Welfare Act. Ringling has made history as The Cruelest Show on Earth.

This is a legal and peaceful gathering. Posters, banners, and leaflets will be provided. The more activists we have to protest, the bigger the effect.

We will be meeting at the main entrance to the Gwinnett Center.  You can park across the street in the Kroger's plaza.

Here is GARP at Philip's Arena in Atlanta February 2013.

    Heartwarming to see so many people brave the extreme cold/wind to stand up for what's right.
