LGBT Compassion is spearheading a campaign against the sale of these live animals, including an upcoming outreach effort this Sunday, August 9th. If you can join, please do so.
From LGBT Compassion's alert on this important issue:
- Sunday, 9:30am-11:30am at Good Hope Baptist Church,
551 Nevada Street (at Peralta Ave.), Glen Park area, San Francisco.
(one block west of the 100 Alemany Blvd. farmers' market lot).
We'll be reaching out to the church's congregation as they arrive, politely asking them to ask the Rev. to stop providing the church's parking lot for animal cruelty activities. Flyers and a few signs will be provided. We won't actually have to witness cruelty, as the vendor is only there during the farmers' market on Saturdays.
It may be a good idea to dress nicely/conservatively, as the church-goers will likely also be dressed. Also, during these live market protests, please don't acknowledge or discuss any issues of culture or ethnicity. That's just an attempt to distract from the real issue of illegal animal cruelty.
If you can attend, please contact Andrew at LGBT Compassion via email.
