July 20, 2011 from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Staples Center Los Angeles, California.
From a Facebook event description:
Join in *The Greatest Circus Protest On Earth* on the opening night of the Ringling Brothers Circus July 20th, 6pm at the Los Angeles Staples Center.
Join us in protesting the cruel use of animals in the circus, where they are brutally treated in the name of 'training' to perform unnatural tricks, chained and confined to small cages and pens, and trucked around the country for months on end. Ringling Bros. Circus has repeatedly failed to meet minimal federal animal welfare standards for the care of animals used in exhibition.
Plan now to protest the Cruelest Show on Earth! Other protests to follow in Ontario and Anaheim.
Last year we had over 200 people there to unwelcome Ringling Bros.! Let's double it this year! Mark your calendar! Be there! Be a part of history!
If anyone wants more info, I can provide an email address if requested.
