Protest Marine Captivity & Animal Abuse at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, Vallejo

"Blackfish" has brought national attention to marine captivity and animal abuse at amusement parks across our country. On Sunday, February 16, Sea World will be holding a mass protest, educating the public of Southern California of these atrocities. Our protest will be held to educate the public of Northern California of the marine enslavement and recurring abuse taking place in our own backyard. Please contact Tina with any questions and/or to arrange carpooling. (916)[masked]

    • Catherine Vade Bon C.

      Peggy, PETA will be there with signs. Hopefully enough for everyone.

    Is there still a host for this event? I won't be attending unless I know (at least by the afternoon before the event) exactly where to go to meet up with the group.

      Wendy, I think Tina Marie is the host and I don't why she isn't responding to questions. I don't think it's purposefully - it's just a matter of she didn't get back on the site. Lots of others are signed up, so please join us! We need your voice. I'm getting on the site to see if I can find the entrances. Remember, we are a core group of dedicated and empassioned people who love animals and HATE animal abuse! Never forget that! Corporations do not have the right to abuse animals for profit! Thanks you! I hope to meet you! I have two posters and will share! Please tell your friends and family to read Death At Sea World by David Kirby!

    I'm so sorry I won't be there, but 4 hours on my feet would not be something I can do. I wish you all a great day educating park goers!

      FYI: You don't have to stay the whole time. It's been my experience that people come and go at theses events, as suits their schedules.

      Hard to do if you are car pooling from Sacramento. :)

    Tina - where should we meet?

    February 15, 2014

  • Peggy B.

    I live in Sac/Roseville if someone wants to carpool.

    (1) Where are we going to meet up?
    (2) I would recommend bringing a camera. Video cameras especially may come in handy.
    (3) Here are the Six Flags rules for public assembly. They refer to an attached map, but there isn’t a map attached.

    Also, see the reference below (the local Vallejo newspaper) that the park’s guidelines for public assembly may infringe free-speech rights. It’s an older article though (2006), so don’t know if its information is still applicable. http://www.timesheraldonline.com/ci_3860108 See also this posting by Deniz Bolbol, who was at the first Marine World protest I ever attended:

    Peggy. I'll call Sea World and/or look up on Google and see if they have a small link for a site map of the place. They may have a small map on their web site.

    Where are we supposed to meet at Sea World? It's a huge place!

    I don't have my driving partner and won't be going. John said from now he will go with me to most protests including those further away. I wish I could be there because I was so inspired by Death At Sea World by David Kirby. Have a passionate protest and I hope you "reach" a lot of people! Thank you Tina Marie for organizing the event! You have courage and I admire you! Hope to meet you another time. God Bless.

    I don't have my driving partner for this and it's further than Sac. John said he will go with me from now to MOST protests including those further away like Vallejo. I wanted to be here because I was so inspired by the book by David Kirby - hope a lot of people read it. John and I will participate in another Sea World protest if there is one later this year. Have a passionate protest and illuminate the public! I'll miss you all and hope to meet Tina Marie and others at a later event! God Bless. In the meantime, we can also donate to groups helping STOP/fighting for marine animals in captivity!!

    For those who do not know exactly what goes on at Sea World, please read Death At Sea World by David Kirby. You'll understand from this very well-written book, how these SUPER intelligent mammals live (suffer) at Sea World, and you'll be very enlightened and UNDERSTAND why animal lovers want to protest!!!! Thank you.

    Catherine, we are against SeaWorld and Tina is organizing an event protest Sea World!!! Please join her! I cannot go as I am out of town and so thank you Tina!!!!!

    You say "Seaworld is holding a mass protest..." Do you mean a protest is being held AT Seaworld? Because I would not want to attend a protest put on by Seaworld. But I would love to protest and educate against what Seaworld does.
