Animals used in circuses live a dismal life of domination, confinement, and violent training. It is standard practice to beat, shock, and whip them to make them perform ridiculous tricks that they cannot comprehend.
Join us and PETA activists for a demonstration against Ringling Brothers Circus (http://www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com/) when their show comes to the Pepsi Center on Saturday evening, Oct. 12! This should be an easy and fun demonstration. All of the posters and leaflets will be provided -- all you need to do is show up and bring friends and family.
Activists will be meeting on Chopper Circle on the public sidewalk in front of the Pepsi Center. Here’s a link to the map: http://goo.gl/maps/dqUdk . One easy way to get there is to take light rail to the Pepsi Center; take the W, C, or E lines which all go to the Pepsi Center / Elitch Gardens station, and avoid parking issues.
If you haven't already, check out PETA's guide to effective advocacy for how to make the most impact for animals (http://www.peta.org/action/Effective-Advocacy.aspx). And, take a look at Quick Facts about the circus here: http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-in-entertainment/Quick-Facts.aspx. Be sure to let your friends know too!
