UPDATE: Time has been announced. This event will run from 11:00am-1:00pm on Friday, August 29th. Please arrive a few minutes early for coordination.
Our friends at Animal ACTivists of Philly alerted us to the cruelty record of a recently appointed Berks County judge, Adolph Antanavage. Apparently this deplorable sample of the human species enjoys participating in pigeon shoots with our “friends” at Wing Pointe.
Our allies in Philly and SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness) have graciously organized an event here, at the Berks County Courthouse. Please attend.
More details to follow, but here is what was posted on Animal ACTivists of Philly’s Meetup page:
SAVE THE DATE – The below is from SHARK – more details (exact time of protest, etc.) will be posted when available. We will likely have a carpool for those coming from the Philly area.
SHARK is putting the call out to everyone; we want this to be a massive effort of humane organizations and individuals who are disgusted with the thousands of innocent birds that will be slaughtered this Labor Day weekend. We will be announcing more details of our plan next week.
There will be a very special protest at the Berks County Courthouse on Friday, August 29, prior to the shoot on the Labor Day Weekend. This protest is against longtime pigeon shooter and newly appointed Berks County Judge Adolph Antanavage. In the picture below, you can see Adolph shooting pigeons at Wing Pointe with a Confederate flag waiving near him. How can anyone who slaughters and wastes animals for enjoyment (and violates PA humane law) in front of a symbol of racism and hatred be put in a position to enforce the law and judge others? We are demanding the ouster of Judge Adolph Antanavage.
Most people in Berks County don’t know about the pigeon killing judge who stands with the Confederate flag. WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT! We need to let everyone in Berks County, and throughout Pennsylvania know what is going on. This is your opportunity to make a difference for animals, and for the American justice system!
