This just in from AFA Janesville where they will be handing out informative literature about how animals are treated in the circus on Tuesday, May 17.
WE NEED YOU! Once again, the circus “wagons” (overheated, poorly ventilated, cramped, stinky trailers and semis) are coming to town. We need to continue to set the tone that we don’t appreciate this kind of “entertainment” in our community. We need people to join us in holding signs (we have some, but feel free to bring your own as well) for both shows.
We will take care of talking with people attending and circus workers, as well as handing out educational information. All we need from you is your willingness to take a stand and a few hours of your time. 🙂 Show times are at 4:30 and 7:30, but they are advertising a “pre-circus party” an hour before each show time. So…let’s meet at 3 and 6 in order to catch people coming into the pre-circus party.
Please consider joining us for one or both demos. We have only a few circuses that continue to hit up our area, let’s keep up the pressure in order to put an end to this cruelty!
Let Les Blumreich (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you think you’ll be able to make it. Everyone who wants to help stand against animal abuse is welcome, please tell your friends and spread the word. Thanks, everyone~ hope to see you there! 🙂
The circus will be on May 17, 2011 at the Rock Co. Fairgrounds on Craig St. right in the middle of a residential area of Janesville.
