Circus Protest at the Pepsi Center!

Animals used in circuses live a dismal life of domination, confinement, and violent training. It is standard practice to beat, shock, and whip them to make them perform ridiculous tricks that they cannot comprehend. 

Join us and PETA activists for a demonstration against Ringling Brothers Circus ( when their show comes to the Pepsi Center on Saturday evening, Oct. 12!  This should be an easy and fun demonstration.  All of the posters and leaflets will be provided -- all you need to do is show up and bring friends and family. 

Activists will be meeting on Chopper Circle on the public sidewalk in front of the Pepsi Center. Here’s a link to the map:  One easy way to get there is to take light rail to the Pepsi Center; take the W, C, or E lines which all go to the Pepsi Center / Elitch Gardens station, and avoid parking issues.

If you haven't already, check out PETA's guide to effective advocacy for how to make the most impact for animals ( And, take a look at Quick Facts about the circus here:  Be sure to let your friends know too!

    I wanted to say thank you for coming out this past weekend. It was not only eye opening for me but others I know. Your signs did not go unnoticed. You also did a really good job showing the facts without putting people on the defensive. I am a Christian and believe God honors your work.

    Kate and Keith,

    Ted will be there for sure and I really, really hope that I will be too but it will depend on how I'm feeling. See you next week (finger crossed)!

      Cheyenne, it looks light light rail is the best way to get there, and I've updated the announcement to indicate this. That way you don't have to park at the Pepsi Center at all.

      yes, you're right, Keith - I spoke to an acquaintance who happens to be a light rail car driver and he told me which way to go. It's very simple from my house.
