Ask Everett to stop supporting animal circuses
This coming week, Ringling Bros will have numerous performances at the Everett Events Center
The animals do not enjoy being carted all over the country to jump through hoops in a brightly lit circus ring. Elephants, and the other animals in the circus, deserve better than to be forced to perform tricks for peoples’ amusement.
There has been endless documentation to show that the elephants in the circus are abused, and it is time to stop supporting animal circuses.
In addition to attending the circus protests, please contact the Comcast Arena at Everett, and politely ask them to make this the last year that they host a circus with animals.

Help Stop the Army From Poisoning Monkeys
During the week of September 12, the U.S. Army at Maryland’s Aberdeen Proving Ground is planning to conduct a cruel exercise that involves injecting vervet monkeys with a drug overdose to crudely recreate the effects of a nerve agent attack. Monkeys used in the exercise suffer from vomiting and uncontrollable twitching and seizures, and some even stop breathing.
Please help spare monkeys from outdated and cruel chemical casualty training exercise.
Tell the commanding general of Aberdeen Proving Ground and the Commander of U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense urging them to replace the use of animals in this laboratory with modern non-animal training methods.
In addition to being incredibly cruel and ineffective, the Army’s monkey laboratories clearly violate Department of Defense policies that prohibit harming primates for training purposes and that require that alternatives to the use of animals be used when available.
