Sunday, October 25th: 2pm to 5pm: Join in with a number of organizers for a Peaceful Protest against the Ringling Brothers Circus at the Quicken Loans Arena, One Center Court, Cleveland, OH[masked], corner of Huron and Ontario Street. Parking in local garages (for a fee) or along the street (if you can locate a free area). Try to car pool if possible.
Ringling Brothers has a reputation to being a perpetrator of heinous abuse to their animals for many years, both in captivity, in traveling and in their training for all performances. There is no safe place for any animal in the circus. Let's be their voices and come out in large numbers to stop this from happening anywhere across the USA and the World.
We have found to it be successful when we are there one hour before the show starts and are there for when the show ends, so the audience sees our signs coming and going).
We are allowed to stand along the sidewalk out in front of the Q. Do not block the pedestrians crossing the street or block the people from being dropped off by buses. There is an 'invisible line' in which we are allowed to stand. The police do monitor us very carefully and the police are there and visible to keep us safe.
We will have handouts to pass out.
Signs will be provided or please feel free to make your own. All of your messages of are great importance!
Demonstration will happen rain or shine! The animals thank you! LET's make ALL circuses free of all animals other than just pure human animals (and they have a choice to join the circus or not)!
As further details emerge, continued updates and edits to this site will continuously occur. There will be Facebook pages, (created by savvy Facebook Circus peaceful protesters), as well for everyone to sign up and join. When the Facebook pages are created, posts to the links will be provided for all of you. Check the Meetup site for details of each of the Peaceful Protests and add your comments as well. Updated information will be added as needed and announced. Thank you from all the Circus Animals everywhere!
Call or text Sandie if you have any questions[masked] 9190.
