Ringling Bros. Circus Protest
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus came to Birmingham this week and we handed out about 1,000 leaflets and protested at 8 out of the 10 shows. I've had the privilege of spending the last 5 days with an incredible group of compassionate people and have made some wonderful new friends.
Overall the week went great. We've opened some people's eyes to the abuse and exploitation and have changed people's minds about the use of animals in the circus. We had a lot of negative responses and ignorant comments, but the good outweighed the bad.
Thank you to everyone that participated! We couldn't have done it without you!
