An Anti-Horse Slaughter Event; Washington, DC, June 15-17th, 2009

The American Horse Council - 2009 Conference;

June 15, 16, 17, 2009
The Regency-Hyatt Again!
Hotel Info;

Permits will be in order for this annual event in case any "Friends of Equines" might want to show up to demonstrate their support for anti-horse slaughter legislation. DO NOT forget that the AHC and its state affiliate "Horse Councils" are pro-slaughter and they pay lobbiest in DC to fight against our efforts. They are the ones stalling our anti-horse slaughter bill(s)

The pro-slaughters' are telling the American Public (as well as our U.S. Congress,) that the only people opposed to horse slaughter are PETA and other people that dont own horses!
We MUST rebut this gross information, and this would be the perfect time and place to do it.

Last year, although only one lone protester showed up, the action was quite successful. Many people stopped to talk "horse-slaughter" and hundreds of fact-sheets & brochures were passed out, and, best of all, the pros were bothered by our presence and really really really didnt want "us" there! They actually tried to have us removed but DC Metro gave them a lesson in U.S. Constitutional Law. Page all the way down to read the full DC Demo 2008 Report.

In the link below you can read all about what the AHC "Issues" are this year, and, as always, whatever it is it is always under the guise of "the welfare of the horse."

Be sure to bring your signs saying "We ARE NOT PETA and we DO Own Horses"

Lets make this our annual event!

What we do for others and the world
