Activists to hold protests against zoos in Limassol

Animal Liberation Cyprus are planning a march against zoos  on Sunday, June 30 in Limassol to press for the closure of all zoos in Cyprus.

“We protest against slavery. The animals are not objects and we have no right to enslave them for any reason. There’s no educational purpose. It’s just slavery! We demand a life of freedom for all. We want all the zoos in Cyprus to close down,” the organisers said on a  post on Facebook.

The meeting point will be at Molos at 14:30. At 15:00 participants will march to Limassol zoo.

“We need a powerful participation, so we demand the support of every animal welfare organisation or team. Be there for the animals,” they said.
