Worcester Fur Protest with MARC - Cancelled due to snow

Join MARC and VegWorcester members in a peaceful protest against fur. Wearing the fur of dead animals is NOT fashionable and is rampant with cruelty.

WHAT: MARC Fur Protest, Worcester.

(Massachusetts Animal Rights Coalition)

WHEN: Saturday December 1st 2012, 1:00pm~2:30pm

WHERE: Outside Greendale Mall, 7 Neponset Street, Worcester Meet on sidewalk at entrance to drive to the mall. This
is a great location - thousands of people will see our signs.

RSVP: RSVP/Info/Direction: [masked]

Weather dependent event. Check emails or call cell [masked]) morning of event for weather-related notice. (If it's very cold we make break early. We will bring handwarmers/footwarmers, though.) Literature and banners also provided.

WHY: Farmed fur animals are kept in tiny, filthy cages and often go insane. Fur bearing animals receive zero protections under the Humane Slaughter Act. They are killed by anal or vaginal electrocution, stomping, having their necks broken, or poison injected directly into their hearts to not spoil their fur. Animals electrocuted through their genitals often convulse for two or more minutes before succumbing to massive heart attack. Trapped animals suffer awful, slow deaths in body gripping traps. They often chew off their legs or other body parts in a failed attempt to escape. If still alive when traps are checked they are usually stomped or clubbed to death.


DIRECTIONS/PARKING: Greendale Mall is located off of I-190 (Exit 1) near the junction of I-190 and I-290 in Worcester, MA. You can park in the mall lot. We will be near the entrance - just look for us and our signs.

    Unfortunately due to the snow, MARC has decided to cancel the fur protest.-- "We are cancelling the fur demo today due to snow. It may or may not be snowing during the demo, but we don't want to put anyone in harm's way on the roads, plus we have to protect our un-laminated signs. We will try to reschedule. ~Helen & Steve"

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.
