Elephants in the hands of Ringling Bros. are whipped as well as yanked and beaten with heavy steel-tipped bullhooks—sometimes until bloody! The good news? Street Teamers are taking action against the cruelty of the circus!
When Street Teamer Alexandra Craig found out that the circus was coming to town, she took it upon herself to speak up for these animals. Alexandra and her friends protested for four days! Many people who were heading toward the circus even changed their minds and went to a nearby music festival instead when they learned about the horrible ways that elephants and other animals are abused in circuses. Way to go, Alexandra!
Check out these rockin’ pics from the protest:

Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
