Along with the Animal Justice Party we will be demonstrating against the 2016 Melbourne Cup out the front of the Ascot Racecourse.
This year we will have a large screen that will be playing complied footage from past racing events so that we can show people what they are really supporting by attending the races. We will also have our tablets continually playing the footage.
We ask others to bring their laptops/tablets so that we can have as many as we can playing simultaneously as people enter the event. We will not be aiming to have people stop and watch the footage but we want to ensure that everyone sees or hears it as they enter the event. We will upload the relevant footage that we will be using closer to the event.
We will also have leaflets that we will be handing out that will include further information about the horse racing industry.
As with all our demonstrations this is a peaceful event and we ask that attendees act in a non-violent, peaceful manner in order to avoid conflict. Our code of conduct has been pinned to the top of our event and we ask that you read this. Also available here: http://alwa.org.au/
We also ask that people wear black on the day to appear uniform, either an Animal Liberation WA or Animal Justice Party T-shirt are ideal.
