There are SEVERAL Ringling Circus Protests going on during the week that Ringling is showing in Worcester. Please note the event dates and times. You are invited to attend any of these event times and please contact the appropriate contact person for each time. It will be a peaceful protest, with sign-holding in front of the building as circus-goers enter the event. Its a good way to take a stand against cruelty by simply showing up and having a large group, to show people that we don't accept cruelty in our city.
