We have a demonstration here tommorow againts the monkey farm that sells them to labratories. I'm gonna dress like a monkey and while someone will makeup me to it, the local news want to interview mw about the subject.

I've never done anything like this, and don't really like the idea of being on tv, even if it's just local.

I'm so nervous and afraid to ruin something



wanna try to encourage me?

Just remember that it is for a good cause, and have fun.

You will do awesome.. no need to worry!





great idea..



we will likely protest the circus here in Nov. Someone will likely be wearing an elephant costume with a chain around their ankle.

thank you, I hope it'll be ok...

I'll show you the photos later, it's probably be fun to see after the pressure is gone



we had a lot of circus demos too lately, the Europe circus is here for a long tour, and I hate this evil circus!

However, they couldn't bring any wild-animals, jusr domastic animals, this it due to a new law we had after the Mederano circus was here a few years ago. I hope the new demos will help make a new law againts animal-circus at all.



What circus your protest is about?

That's so cool that you're doing that. I hope all goes well.

LadyFaile 10-14-2003 12:19 PM

good luck!

if you feel subconscious just remember that it's not about you, it's about helping those poor animals, and if putting yourself in the spotlight for a minute will help so be it

it's all worthwhile if it makes a difference

Don't forget to bring bananas for a snack!

Neta558 10-14-2003 05:41 PM

I didn't feel good about the interview, but people who saw it told me I did fine.

The make-up took a lot of time, but it was so great!



Being a monkey is so fun!

Hey, good stuff.

The pictures are really cool. I'm glad to see that you got more people out for your circus protest.



About 7 years ago I was walking along with my sister and we ran into a guy named Daniel. He said he and his sister were protesting the circus. So we decided to join in and there were the four of us. We got really good press coverage though so it went well. But I'll tell you what really pisses me off.



Daniel went to the City council and gave them all the facts about circuses and the harm to animals and all the alternatives and stuff. But Daniel wasn't such a great speaker. So they didn't listen to him. I guess facts don't mean anything. Then 3 years later some Vet Dr. guy says the exact same thing to council and the ciruses were banned. Now that's a good thing but the fact is the 'powers that be' only listen to doctors and other distinguished members of society.



So if you have all the facts on your side you still need a "doctor" or you're screwed. And if there happens to be an idiot doctor opposed to you, you're really screwed.



Hope your protest has the desired results.

Wow, Neta, you looked great! It was a wonderful thing you did.

Gnarly 10-15-2003 07:20 AM

Agreed. You look fantastic, and congratulations for the protest. I'm sure I would be way too cowardly to try anything like that, as much as I would love to..

michael_veggie 10-15-2003 08:06 AM

Cool! There were lots of people supporting you so I assume you must of stopped a bunch of people going in.

The pictures looked awesome! Glad to see that there are active pro-animal forces at work in Israel, too.

Neta558 10-16-2003 06:26 AM

It wasn't a demonstration in front of a circus, it's forbidden to bring wild animals to circuses in Israel.

This demo was about Mazo-farm. It's a place in which monkeys are raised to be sold to labratories around the world.



And we have a lot od ar action here lately, it's hard to tell if it's good or bad. It's nice to see a lot of people puting time to it, but thinking about all the issues there are..
