Protest Ringling Bros. Circus on Friday, Jan 24

This is the page for people attending the protest on Friday, January 24th. I'm making three separate events for the protest so I can get a better estimate of who will be at each protest. Please RSVP to both this meetup and the original meetup (see link below).

The protests on Friday are at 9:30 am and 6 pm.

Signing up for this day does not require you to attend both protests, but please comment and let me know which hour you will be attending.

    So our first protest was a great success, but the next one should be bigger and better! Don't forget to come out tonight at 6 pm to protest animal cruelty!

    P.S. Be sure to check out the local news channels for coverage of this morning's protest!

    So I have just a few ground rules and tips:

    1. BE RESPECTFUL.
    Many of us went to the circus as children or have taken our own children before we were aware of the pain the animals suffer and the atrocities committed by circus animal trainers. We must be kind and respectful when approaching everyone in line for the circus. To do anything less compromises our cause.

    2. Do not respond to heckling.
    If someone starts to harass you, ignore them. There is no use getting worked up, and yelling only brings you to their level. If you cannot handle it, walk away. Do not ever raise your voice or act rudely, no matter how rude the other person is being.

    3. Dress appropriately.
    It's going to be cold tomorrow, folks. Please wear heavy coats, gloves, hats, long johns, etc. It's hard to be cheerful when we're freezing our butts off, so dress accordingly!

    Hi guys! So, the first day of protest will soon be upon us! I will provide materials and signs, and we will meet right under the large "Bridgestone Arena" sign.

    If you are looking for parking, there are a few metered spots on Broadway but if they are all taken the cheapest parking will be at the public library parking lot, between 6th and 7th off of Church St.
