Courtney Brother’s Circus Protest 2013

In July 2013, the Courtney Brother’s Circus were performing in Arklow town for four days. During those four days, a group in Arklow dedicated to animal welfare, gathered across the road from where the circus opened up and protested against the organisation. Those participating in the protest held up signs about animal cruelty in circuses and hand out leaflets to people passing by. The protest was largely peaceful apart from incidents where organisers from the circus or people who supported the circus engaged in verbal abuse against the protesters, one incident even resulted in the Gardaí being called.
