I am, as usual, lacking in vegan straightedge friends. Part of this is definitely because a large number of vegan straightedge kids are not queer and are not anarchist. Other parts of it have to do with historic bullshit, gossip, and stylistic differences. If anyone in Richmond is XVX and wants to hang out let me know.
I’m listening to XtruenatureX and hanging out in my room. Something I haven’t done in a long time. Too long? But its hard to listen to xvx stuff by myself without anyone around who ‘gets it’.
I guess I’m just sayin I could use some support, preferably in person, from other xvx people who either identify as anarchist or queer or don’t mind that I do.

They will be having 11 different showtimes over 4 days, which gives all of us an opportunity to make it out before a show at least once, to hold signs, to pass out leaflets, to try an convince people to not go to the circus and to not expose their children to that type of animal cruelty.
If we go out about an hour before each showing we can probably catch people going in before each show, and convince them not to go in.
If we could also get things like letters to the editor of local papers, press releases etc. written we can make sure that our opposition to the circus get noticed.
If you know anyone or any group who would want to help out with this protest please show them this event page.
There are so many really cool human-only circuses around that it is high time the animal circuses ended.
