Demonstration to Protest the Portland Aquarium

Join others at a demonstration to protest the Portland Aquarium on McLoughlin Boulevard in Milwaukie. This business opened in a former steakhouse last December to display captive marine animals, birds and reptiles. Since then, one of the owners has pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally obtain sharks and rays from Florida for an aquarium he co-founded in Idaho; former employees have expressed concerns about how the animals are treated; and the Oregon Humane Society has launched an investigation. (See http://www.oregonlive.com/milwaukie/index.ssf/2013/08/portland_aquarium_logs_200_mar.html.)

    We had a great time protesting together in the cold but sunny weather. We got lots of supportive honks and a nice man brought us all mochas.

    Hi Molly. Sorry I didn't address the transportation part of your message. For some reason I glossed over that. I don't know anyone coming from inner SE but Bus 33 goes right by the location and I will make sure you get a ride home. I hope that makes a difference and that I see you there. If not, see you next time I hope.

      I'm sorry, I didn't see this until after I'd made other plans.

      No problem. Catch you next time.

    Just learned there is a carpool leaving at 10:30am at Sweetpea Baking Co. Inner SE at Vegan Mall. Maybe you can join that PAL carpool! :)

    I'm afraid I can't make this. Due to the weather and my unfamiliarity with the neighborhood around the aquarium, I'd rather not rely on public transit.

    Sorry I didn't respond sooner to your messages on here. We are still on for tomorrow. I hope to see some of you there. Dress warm! It should be sunny at least.

    My Gmail account didn't recognize the above address so I tried to reach him through this site. Sorry!

    It is supposed to be very cold, is this still on? If so, is anyone commuting from inner SE that I can share a ride with?
