End Animal Circuses Now!
Although not the most pressing issue facing our world today, the cruelty and abuse of animals at animal circuses is still an important issue for two main reasons:
1) Living beings are being harmed for profit.
2) Families are encouraged to ignore this harm in exchange for entertainment by paying to attend animal circuses. Attending animal circuses supports trainers in "breaking" animals and forcing animals to perform.
PETA has a campaign against Ringling Bros circus treatment of animals, elephants specifically. Abusing animals for the purpose of profit and entertainment needs to end.
As anarchists, it's important to fight against oppression, exploitation, and domination in all of its forms, including those forms directed at non-human animals. The more sensitized our world becomes to the murder and abuse of non-human animals for profit, the more sensitized our world will be to the murder and abuse of humans for profit.
