Especially on Wilshire Blvd there is lots of foot traffic, lots of sidewalk, lots of leafleting opportunities. Not to mention that Wilshire Blvd is a very interesting place to visit. Not only will anyone staging along Wilshire have a chance to educate people and hand out leaflets, it will be fun as well. There is Wilshire and Rodeo Dr., Wilshire and La Brea, Wilshire and Vermont, Wilshire and Fairfax; this entire 8 mile route is not boring. Plus I have contacted several media agents including Jane Valez Mitchell, and hired a professional photographer to film the event. His name is David Sobel of David Sobel Photography and he has experience with events like this. I also sent messages to several celebrities that are know animal activists and vegans. We can do this folks, and even if this year’s event flops, I am going to do this again next year, the year after that, and the year after that….’Until all the cages are open, and all the shackles are broken’.
April 15th 2015 10:00 A:M Pacific time we will be at 2029 Century Park E on the corner of Century Park E and Olympic Blvd across from the Century towers where the Australian Consulate as well as the British Consulate have offices. We will be protesting the live export of animals from Australia as well as holding up signs to stop the cull and fox hunts in Britain. It is our hope that enough animal rights activists and animal sanctuaries join in this demonstration to line up all along Century Park E. to Santa Monica Blvd, all down Wilshire Ave. all the way to the Chinese Consulate on Shatto Pl. and 6th st. We will start at about 10:00 A:M with leaflets, posters, banners etc…and about 11:00 A:M Pacific there will be a moment of silence while I ring a gong in memory of the species of animals lost forever to greed, profit, and human apathy, as well as all the brave activists that have lost their lives protecting them and speaking out for those who cannot speak for themselves. After a couple of minutes I will play a song by Radiohead called “Give Up The Ghosts” a beautiful song that was used for the credits in the award winning documentary “The Ghosts In Our Machine.” During this song we will be liberating some stuffed animals from shackles and cages and holding them in our arms hopefully invoking an emotional response from folks driving by. When the song is over I would like us to chant “Until all the cages are opened, and all the shackles broken” hopefully once again to invoke the folks driving by to either honk their support or chant along with us. This is the plan thus far.
