FAUN in weekend of action against vivisection, circus, more

*****CROSSPOST FREELY AND WIDELY!!!*****

Join FAUN in a weekend of action against vivisection and Cole Bros Circus {Thurs May 30th~Sun June 2nd}. In NYC, we will proceed in our ongoing fight against vivisickness with a Gateway to Hell anti-Air France/KLM "lab" primate-trafficking demo on Friday. In NJ, we will continue our mission to enlighten the public and expose the abusers at the retrograde Cole Bros Circus across the weekend, Thursday through Sunday!
{Thursday, May 30th~Sunday, June 2nd}


 

** Friday, May 31st - Air France-KLM Gateway to Hell Primate Trafficking demo @ Air France/KLM Exec. Offices in NYC**


 
Join FAUN in NYC on a late spring afternoon, when/where we'll execute another noisy, scandalous demonstration to decry lab-primate traffickers Air France and KLM Dutch Airlines at their Executive Offices in New York City. Our objective, as always, is to publicly call out Air France-KLM and pressure them to cease and desist from their complicity in the HORRORS of the international primate air-trafficking mafia which sequesters thousands of terrified monkeys from their native jungles in the island of Mauritius off the coast of Madagascar, as well as Vietnam, Laos, China and other sub tropically situated countries, and dooms them to maddening/lethal confinement on intensive breeding farms, followed by torture and death in hellish laboratories of vivisection in Europe and across the globe.

** Thursday, May 30th ~ Sunday, June 2nd - FAUN Animal Circuses=Animal Cruelty demos @ Cole Bros Circus in Garfield, NJ**



 

Cole Bros has the widest variety of animals among all modern circuses, enslaving and abusing creatures as variant as camels, llamas, monkeys, tigers, horses, big cats and bears, as well as traditional token exploitees: our friends the elephants. One doesn't have to be an animal rights activist to comprehend the intrinsic cruelty of taking animals from their natural habitats (or breeding them in captivity), confining them in cramped, horrible cages, conditioning them through pain, fear and a calculated program of negative reinforcement, as ALL circuses that use animals do. Elephants, bears, tigers and other sentient beings enslaved by circuses suffer immensely from captivity-related diseases, and quite often die prematurely. The animals are beaten into submission as babies and perform out of fear from the pain of the bullhooks, whips, electric prods, chains - a cornucopia of insidious instruments of negative reinforcement and torture.

***Additional Background on Cole Bros. Circus***

 

The Cole Bros. Circus, previously known as Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus, has categorically failed to meet minimal federal standards for the care of animals used in exhibition as established by the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has repeatedly cited Cole Bros. for failure to provide veterinary care to animals, including elephants who have shown extreme weight loss; they have also abysmally failed to provide adequate space to animals.

The USDA has filed formal charges of AWA violations against Cole Bros. because elephants have shown signs of being abused with sharp metal bullhooks and other instruments of domination and punishment. The New Jersey Humane Society charged the circus with cruelty to animals for overloading and overworking an elephant, and two elephants�who were described as malnourished and neglected�died suddenly within a two-week period. In five separate incidents, Cole Bros. elephants have killed two members of the public, injured more than a dozen others, and rampaged during performances, which has caused tens of thousands of dollars in property damage. Click for more of Cole Bros' chronology of sordid deeds, including a recent fine of $150,000.00 on the head of John Pugh (company owner) for selling two very rare Asian elephants to a man who intended to use them for private parties, elephant rides, etc.

As always FAUN will provide signs, literature, video and relevant props. If you have something you have personalized and want to bring, that's perfectly fine... but all you NEED to bring is YOURSELF, a heart full of empathy/compassion and a voice to demonstrate your love for buffalo, primates, bears, big cats, small cats, all creatures great and small.

IF there are any questions about the circus demonstrations please contact FAUN Circus Cruelty Campaigns coordinator Cheryl: cherylsemcer@gmail.com. If you'd like to come to the demo(s) but securing a ride is your problem, please contact us, depending on where you are, we may be able to coordinate a ride or a carpool scenario.


If there are any questions about any of the above events or anything else on the FAUN NJ/NY calendar, send an email to information@faunnj.org or call (732)693-9044. All animals have INNATE RIGHTS. Being vegan is not enough to move us closer to a world where those rights are respected and protected by law. Sick and tired of horror stories of animal abuse?

What are you waiting for? JOIN US in taking this fight to the streets of New York and New Jersey.
