8-20-25 Protest the Circus Coming To SAP Center

The Cruelest Show On Earth! Barnum and Bailey's Circus

As every year in the past, SCCAA and members from many other Bay Area Groups, will be out front SAP Center in San Jose peacefully protesting animals used in circuses. This is an absolutely legal venue to do such protesting and we do it every year.
Local Bay Area leader Pat Cuviello will be publishing schedules at all the other Bay Area Ringling Bros Tour stops as well, such as San Francisco, and Oakland.
from Pat Cuviello:
It's that time of year again, and YOUR VOICE is needed to oppose Ringling’s horrible, inhumane and demeaning treatment of animals AND their lies regarding these practices. Please join Humanity Through Education to protest the circus and educate patrons about the inherent cruelty of using animals for entertainment. Ringling is again performing in four Bay Area cities this year -- so your help is greatly needed. Signs and leaflets are provided at each leafleting time listed below. For more information call[masked] or email [masked].
You can protest for an hour or 2 or all day. We need to be there when shows start and stop for the most traffic. The times reflected below are optimum for those show times.
Location: Santa Clara Street, San Jose
Please meet on the corner of Santa Clara & Autumn Street.
Wed ... Aug 20 ... 6p
Thu ... Aug 21 ... 6p
Fri ... Aug 22 ... 6p
Sat .... Aug 23 ... 12:45p* and 5:30p
Sun .... Aug 24 ... 2:45p*
Mon ... Aug 25 ... 6p
Progress is being made with each year!

      Good question Sophia. Please use the schedule in the post above. That is when you need to be in place. No matter which time you are available to go, (Some go once some go every time), There will be at least 20 to 30 others there holding signs and handing out flyer with you so you won't be alone. For instance I plan to go Sat or Sunday midday. I know others will be there then as well...but others will be there at all the other times to as their schedules allows.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
