For Immediate Release
March 3, 2006

John Carmody 087-6275579

Limerick — Confined to a cage with her nude body painted like a tiger and a banner above her reading, "Wild Animals Don’t Belong Behind Bars," a woman will protest the use of exotic animals by Duffy’s Circus. The protest will highlight the dangers that animal acts pose to humans and animals alike:

Date: Friday, March, 3
Time: 12 noon sharp
Place: Start of Cruises Street (Opposite HMV Music Store)

Recently animal protection group Animal Defenders International revealed for the first time ever their findings of an undercover investigation into several Irish circuses in Ireland including Duffy’s Circus. The campaign report on Ireland's circuses is based on undercover investigations by ADI Field Officers into seven circuses touring Ireland in 2000 and 2003. ADI Field Officers obtained employment with two Irish circuses, and observed many more. Examples of the violence used to control the animals were captured in the Irish launch video:

* a camel slapped in the face and then hit in the face with a
broom and finally jabbed with a broom handle
* an elephant kicked in the leg and then punched in the face
* a hippo whipped to hurry it along when it was already
walking in the desired direction
* a keeper whipping an elephant in order to get her to move
* a baby camel being roughly handled to force him to move
* a pregnant camel performing just days before giving birth read full story / add a comment
Who Would Say No To Pure Spring Water On Tap

"LIKE the Rossport five, a group of Limerick men are willing to go to jail in order to stop water from the "highly polluted” River Deel from
coming into Pallaskenry."

Setting up a picket line to stop the pipes being laid, the Kildimo/Pallaskenry Bleach Lough retention committee say that they would rather be locked up behind bars than be forced to drink water from a river that is "floating with dead animal carcasses, human excrement, fish kills and rubbish”.

According to the vice chairperson and secretary of the group, Dan Foley, they have enjoyed clean pure water from the nearby Bleach Lough spring source for the past 50 years. And he said that they shouldn’t all be forced to take water from "one of the most polluted rivers in Ireland” when there is ample capacity at the Lough to cater for everyone.

The controversial pipeline is due to reach the white picket line within the next two to three weeks. But Mr Foley said that they will be there to meet it when it comes.

Say it out loud and you’ll get it.

The blurb describes it as Fahrenheit 911 meets Moulin Rouge and it has something for everyone- brilliant comedy about the current US President, fantastic music from 60s, sex and full frontal nudity, and a ‘God’ figure that I think most of us would be happy with! On top of that there’s a strong message about political activism. definitely one to debate in the pub after.

Everyone in limerick should grab the chance to see it. Only till Sat night in Belltable. For those of you unfortunate not to be in Limerick, I hear rumours of a movie version... read full story / add a comment
