There will be a rodeo in my small town of Whittlesea Vic on Saturday 27th Feb 2010.
I am planning to turn up to stand outside the venue holding a banner of showing the cruelties of rodeos.
Would anyone be able to join me as at this stage I am on my own.
Please let me know, it will be held at the Whittlesea showgrounds and gates open at 3pm so I plan to be there at 2.30pm.
Oh and if anyone who can make it could bring a banner showing or telling of the cruelties of rodeos, that would be great, at this stage I have 5 banners.
Also I am hoping to get someone to come along who would be willing to go inside the venue with a video recorder to tape any cruelties that WILL happen.
Thanks,
Lisa Rees

Good on you!

Make sure you also write to your local papers and council and let them know why you oppose the rodeo.  Who knows, your local paper might even report on your protest and help get the word out!

peace

Oh I so wish I could teleport!!!

I'd go inside and record but I'm obviously not in the same state.

Sorry!
Good luck!!!

Today I had confirmation from the media that they are interested in interviewing me regarding this protest.

Unfortunately, everybody has told me they MIGHT come or are NOT coming.

I am afraid that if I do not get any activists interested in attending this protest, I am going to have to cancel it.

I do not want the movement to look stupid when the media turn up and see me protesting on my own.

FYI to everyone who says Whittlesea is too far for them to travel, it is not far from Roxbough park where AA is having the protest against the Ringlings Bros circus.

I have even offered to pick people up from the Epping train station but that is out of the question for some.

I will be so disappointed if the rodeo win this one because its TOO FAR for Animal activists to travel!  sad
