NEW DATE: Sunday August 16. Animals and Circuses: A Teach-In

NEW DATE AND PLACE: SUNDAY AUGUST 16th in EAST LAKE LIBRARY

You’ve heard about circus protests and the criticisms circuses receive for having wild animals in their shows. But what about the domestic animals? What about this announcement Ringling made about “retiring” their elephants in three years? If things are that bad, why isn’t there a law against it?

Come to this teach in and get the details about circuses and animals. We’ll go over some of the most commonly cited arguments so you’ll be prepared to speak to folks who don’t yet have all the facts. We’ll go over the current state of animal circuses in the United States and around the globe, and we’ll talk about local efforts here to raise awareness around both circuses and the exotic animal rides at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, coming up in a couple months.

The teach-in will be Sunday August 16 between 12 and 2 pm at East Lake Library in  2727 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55406, from 12pm – 2pm.
