Protest at the Caulfield Cup

Late notice we know.  But, if like us, you were moved by last Thursday’s appalling expose on the cruel reality of the racing industry (and that industry’s inadequate response to that expose), we believe its worth highlighting this protest to our residents – after all it’s on your turf.

Details of the event are

 

The protest is sponsored by the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses (CPR) and they are asking you to

 “Join CPR as we educate attendees to the Caulfield Cup and call out the racing industry!

ABOUT THIS EVENT

 With the Spring Racing Carnival quickly approaching, it’s up to us to show racegoers the cruel reality of the horse racing industry.

 The racing industry has a lot to be ashamed of: whips, 2-year-old racing, jumps racing, tongue-ties and much more. Our recently released deathwatch report found that 1 horse dies every 3 days on Australian racetracks, 122 in the past year alone.

 But worst of all – the industry has no retirement plan for their horses, resulting in thousands being killed for pet food and human consumption.

 Join us as we ask racegoers to choose kindness over cruelty so that we can change the world for racehorses.

 Signs & banners will be provided

 BYO refreshments, sunscreen etc.

 Please dress smart casual at the minimum.”
