Animal Defenders International (ADI) has just launched a big push in Brazil to try to secure circus legislation, a year after we achieved a groundbreaking ban in Bolivia. We have screened a new shocking new video 'Unnatural Acts' in the Brazilian House of Representatives, and have launched an online petition.
The new video contrasts the shocking abuse and confinement of animals in circuses with how the animals would live in nature. The video includes footage filmed during the past few weeks from inside Brazilian circuses, as well as examples of circuses cruelty from across South America.

Our petition calls for legislation that would prohibit the use of all animals in circuses in Brazil. Please sign & share this petition - this could be another big step on the road to securing an end to the suffering of animals in circuses world-wide.
Many, many thanks for all you do for animals,
