Hundreds of people, parents with children, came to the Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Rose Garden Arena tonight, and a dozen protesters were there leafletting them. Security set up a 10x10' sq. area for "free speech" people, but after getting our flyers, we all spread out among the throngs there to see the abuse of the animals. Security was rather vigilante in trying to make us stay on the sidewalk. At one point I was 2 steps within the arena space, and security told me to move. I did, but stuck out my tongue when I turned away. Gawd, it makes me mad. How would you like to stand on one foot for the entertainment of animals?
Thursday, Sept. 23, 6:30 p.m. Show up to support the animals.
