MAD E-News: VICTORY IN COURT + Freedom for Dolphins and Whales Demonstration (Sun June 29th)
We’ve got great news!
As we began to deliver our defense yesterday in Ontario Superior Court lawyers for Marineland Canada rose and abandoned their “silent demonstration” motion! Clearly effected by our defense, our unwillingness to back down, and the overwhelming amount of support that had come since they served us notice at the very last minute - Marineland was forced in Superior Court to back down!
If Marineland would have been successful the restrictions would have stopped chanting and also severely restricted our ability to appeal to park goers to make informed decisions about what they support with their money. This is a huge victory for MAD and for those who oppose Marineland and none of it would have been possible without your support.
9 days ago we launched a GoFundMe and asked for support. In the span of 8 days $9,650 of our $10,000 goal is raised!
In the span of one month hundreds took part in the first ever “March On Marineland” and we’ve gotten our first activist defeat of Marineland in court!
So far our campaign year has been full of positives, but we also have to make sure we keep that up! Our next demonstration is coming soon on Sunday June 29th from 12-2pm. For those who have been waiting for a Sunday demonstration this is for you! The demonstration itself is part of "Freedom for Dolphins and Whales" another coordinated and international day of protest against animal captivity. Please do what you can to support that demonstration spread the word through social media and word of mouth, organizing and offering car pools and encouraging others to get active for captive animals! We’ve attached a facebook cover photo for facebook users to use to spread the word

We fought hard for the right to demonstrate, to chant and to appeal to the public to educate them on how they have a choice that captive animals do not. Now, it’s time to step up and use those rights!
