Please join us to educate the public on why the circus is no fun for the animals. The protest is rain or shine and signs and literature will be provided, or if you prefer bring your own signs.

On January 16th, the Niagara Music Forum will be hosting a fun vegan fundraiser featuring a cooking demo with Suie Moffat, guest lecture from Brock Professor Lauren Corman, film showing of The Cove, and Hardcore show. The event will raise funds for the AETA 4, 4 animal rights activists from the U.S. who are currently facing terrorism charges (10 years) for things like chalking sidewalks, wearing balaclavas at demonstration to conceal their identities, etc. Although these charges are all frivolous, they are up against a major piece of legislation, the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA), and legal fees are mounting.
Let’s all get together to help all our jailed activists and show the world that unjust legislation like this will not stop the call for an end to animal cruelty.

Date: Saturday, January 16
Time: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
Location: Seventy Three, 73 St. Paul St.
