I was at the 5:30 protest yesterday. I was disappointed that I didn't see anyone from our group

That's too bad, Rick. I was there Thursday evening and again this afternoon, but the rain chased some of us away a little early. I'm hoping to make at least one of the shows tomorrow. It really would be nice if others could join in. Folks, if you're not sure how you feel about this issue, please visit RinglingBeatsAnimals.com and then decide.
I was there on Thursday also. Would have liked to gone for every time slot but my schedule dictated otherwise.
Great turnout this evening. Thanks to everyone who came. Please join us tomorrow, Saturday & Sunday!

What are you protesting....none of the links have any explanation..not even in description..those of us who don't live on the Iinternet or have the tv on nonstop have no idea!

You don't have to watch TV nonstop to know the circus has animals... I don't own a TV and I know that.
Really nice attitude..I sincerely do not know what you are protesting..and was just asking..and now I don't care. I am leaving this Meetup!
Kathy, I will speak for myself; I am protesting that 1) the animals are used for entertainment, 2) they are horrifically beaten (with bullhooks and whips) for training and for dominance/control throughout their lives (unprovocated), 3) their confinement is extreme - elephants are chained by 2 legs for 96 hour rides between cities and then during setup and take down. 95% of their lives they endure this bondage, I don't think they are able to lie down. Elephants live very long lives, around 55 years, so they are some of the longest-tortured animals on the planet, many continue to be forced to perform for years after they develop serious foot disease.
I hope you reconsider.
This is why many of us protest against the circus.

I will not be there Thursday, but will make it for one of the 3 Saturday protests. There are 7 protest times for the 7 circus performances. See the schedule on this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/544802612287280/
Likely I can at least wear a shirt that reads "vegan" as I pedicab circus goers. Engaging my customers about this issue is possible
