We rock NBC-Friday Report about Bullriding

Just when I was ready to hang up my activist britches, the tiny army's ranks swell and we kick NBC's butt!!! Thank you Ardele, Blair, Richard, Hugh, Marisa, Allison - and the ten young Arkansas teens who asked if they could help, picked up signs and gave literature to EVERYONE, I mean no one could pass these kids without leaving with bullriding information!

Interesting education for us here...they were a little raucous at first and seemed like they might be mocking us, but I took a chance when they asked if they could help. And though they needed to but advised to say 'genitals' instead of 'balls' and to stop a little dance they began - they did everything we asked, made up their own chants ('Ride bicycles instead of bulls!' 'How would you like it if some cowboy was riding on your back?') took pictures of each other wearing our signs, and made sure passing cars saw signs that said HOW

DO YOU SPELL CRUELTY? N B C and BUCK THE RODEO with the awful picture of the filthy cowboys tormenting a bull.

No AR employees with offices within walking distance helped, though they were asked directly; well, that is between you people and whatever God you serve. We gave out over 400 pieces of literature on Friday. We weren't hassled by NBC security or police, as we were previously; I think they finally saw there was no point. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR SPEAKING FOR THE BULLS! Contacts/sponsors below:
