Bay Area Protests Against Ringling Bros Circus
Mon Aug 22 2005
Oakland, San Jose, and San Francisco Leaflet Ringling Patrons
At three week's worth of Ringling Brothers Circus appearances in the Bay Area, dozens of activists greeted circus-goers coming and going with informative signs and leaflets. Thousands of leaflets were passed out, some detailing the mistreatment of circus animals, some suggesting animal-free circus alternatives. Other than the occassional hot-head making a scene in front of his children or aggressive circus security details, most people were receptive and a few noted right away that they would never attend another animal circus once they became aware of the inherent cruelty. After the first round of demos in Oakland, activists turned their attention to Ringling Bros. appearances in San Jose the following week and San Francisco the week after that.
