    Hi! Just letting you know, I organized my own protest in White Marsh Mall In Baltimore, Maryland. We only got 7 people to come, but we definitely took a stand and spread the word! We also gave people a card with the link to your chinese fur trade video, and passed out peta2 leaflets! It was definitely successful! We will be back next year!(:

    Aww! ūüėź I wish I was in Ottawa or Kitchener. I’m waay down south in Ontario. I’d host my own, but my little town doesn’t have very many animal activists… and protests get REALLY awful, almost like a riot.

    They need one in Calgary, Alberta, Canada,
    I would have no idea how to host something like this, but I would definitely attend one.

      KC – that’s unfortunate, but you can make a difference by yourself. One person is far better than none and can definitely have an impact.

      I’ve organized protests and had only 5 people show up, even if you’re out there taking a stand those 3,4,5 people are better than none! :)
