**CANCELLATION of Sat. 11/12 FAUN Abolish Live Markets! demo @ Marzigliano's Live Animal Dungeon in West New York, NJ**: As most of you know having received this email (original form) last Saturday, FAUN was scheduled to stage another Abolish Live Markets! demo in our ongoing campaign @ Marzigliano's Live Animal Hellhole in West New York tomorrow, Saturday Nov. 12th from 3:30-7pm. Those among you who participate in these demos regularly know the powerful impact these event have on the local populace, most of whom are shocked and horrified, some to tears, to discover (via our setup/props & video) just exactly how heinous is the demise of sentient birds and mammals so ill-fated as to end up trapped in Marzigliano's dungeon after a life of what we can only guess was pure, unmitigated misery and exploitation. Those who frequent these demos are, also, already aware of the ludicrous police oppression we deal with in West New York - being required to fill out an NOTARIZED APPLICATION with personal info to the WNYPD for every single demo - mandatorily submitted to WNYPD 30 days in advance) Above and beyond this rudimentary violation of our right to free speech, they have recently attempted to impose upon us a "Police Protection" fee of $45 per demo, based on a town ordinance dating back to 1977, which our wonderful friends/advocates at the ACLU of NJ have definitively determined is entirely irrelevant to what we are doing. The West New York PD has essentially told us that if we do not pay, their (unconstitutional) demo "permit application" would be denied us, and we would not be permitted to protest.
