  • This location is shown only to members

There will be a Protest/leafleting this Thursday 25th April, from 6pm to 7.30pm, when Zippos Circus comes to Finsbury Park.
We'll be meeting by the gates to the circus. Leaflets, placards, and banners, will all be provided for you to use there.
Contact number for this demonstration is:
[masked] 383.

Zippos Circus are one of only eight circuses in the UK that continue to use animals. The other 23 UK circuses don't use animals. Zippos Circus uses Horses, Ponies, a dog and Budgerigars in they're performances.
Animal Defenders International did an undercover investigation of this circus, in 2006. Here's a link to that investigation, this link shows what they found:

There's also a Youtube video of Zippos Circus, by Animal Rights Cambridge, that you can watch. Here's the link for that video:

There are already advertising posters up in the area, so if you live in the area please try to remove illegal posters, and please try to persuade shops not to display them either.

The nearest underground station is Finsbury Park, which is on the Piccadilly, and Victoria lines. There's also Finsbury Park National Rail station, right next door, where you can get First Capital Connect trains. These stations are in fare zone 2. The Circus is no more than a 5 minute walk, from either of these stations.

The exact address for the circus, at this location is:

Finsbury Park,
Seven Sisters Road,
London,
N4 2DH
Here's a map showing how to get to the circus:

Please try you're best to make this important demonstration. These animals need us to protest for them whenever we can, in order for them to eventually be freed from their exploitation, and allowed their freedom.
