WHAT: Peaceful Demonstration against Bird Paradise
WHEN: Saturday, June 21, 2008 from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
WHERE: Public right of way in front of Bird Paradise, 551 E Rt. 130 S, Burlington, NJ 08016
The New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance (NJARA) reported that " NJARA sends kudos to ROAR for not letting Bird Paradise squelch their first amendment right when they attempted to stop ROAR's protests. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey beat back a lawsuit from Bird Paradise, that sued ROAR, Mobilization for Animals and the New York Bird Club as well as the City of Burlington, which had approved a previously scheduled protest. "
Every year thousands of birds are bred and sold by one of the largest bird stores in the nation: Bird Paradise. Pet store birds are deprived of their natural environment and often imprisoned in cages. Even the most well intentioned person cannot provide for the needs of any bird. Bird Paradise brags about having thousands of birds for sale. On their own Web site, they claim they are the "World's Largest Bird Store". Let's tell them that profiting from the exploitation of birds is not something to be proud of.
