Announcing a new Meetup for Tampa Area Animal Rights Meetup Group!
What: Biggest SeaWorld Protest Yet
When: Saturday, May 29, 2010 12:00 PM
7007 Seaworld Dr
Orlando, FL 32821
Join us at this important event for the animals.
After a violent attack by an orca named Tilikum (aka "Tilly") resulted in the death of a trainer at SeaWorld Orlando, people around the world began to realize what many animal advocates have been warning for years—that animals are not ours for entertainment!
Unfortunately, SeaWorld has not learned a thing. The company just announced that two female orcas at SeaWorld Orlando are pregnant—one is expected to give birth later this month or in early June.
Animals kept in captivity and forced to perform silly tricks at SeaWorld face a lifetime of mental and physical torment, and they need your voice to speak up for them. This cycle of abuse must stop now!
Please join activists coming from all across Florida for this important demonstration to support freeing Tilly and making this the last generation of orcas born into a life sentence at one of SeaWorld's concrete prisons.
What: SeaWorld protest
When: Saturday, May 29, 12 noon–1 p.m.
Where: Main entrance to SeaWorld, intersection of Central Florida Parkway and Sea World Drive, Orlando (Please meet on the grassy median across from the entrance.)
**We need your help to spread the word! Please invite all your friends to this event!**
All materials will be provided, so just bring yourself and anyone you can recruit to join you! Again, please cross-post this message on Facebook and Twitter, and e-mail everyone you know!
Thank you for all that you do to help animals!
