DUBLIN COUNCIL VOTES TO BAN WILD-ANIMAL CIRCUSES 07/29/2016

On Monday, Dublin City Council voted in favour of banning wild-animal circuses from public land! Thanks to the motion, which was introduced by Councillor Noeleen Reilly, Dublin now joins Limerick, Galway, and many other local authorities across Ireland that have taken a stand against circuses that force animals such as elephants, tigers, and zebras to perform. In response to the news, Ms Reilly said: ''I am delighted my motion was passed. This is a cruel outdated practice that holds no place in modern Ireland. Training and torturing animals to perform tricks for our entertainment in an unnatural environment is inhuman and degrading. Not only that but animals are chained or caged for up to 24 hours a day and are only let out to perform. I want to commend all the local Authorities who have passed similar motions to date and now call on the Minister to listen to what the councils are telling him and to ban this practice from the state immediately.''

Activism

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter...
