About this Event

Unite with the Anti-Speciesist Action Collective and Animal Liberation ACT to protest the Melbourne Cup Day race events in Canberra.

Annually more than 6 million dollars in taxpayer money is funnelled into Thoroughbred Park here in the ACT, horses have died on and off the track and numerous trainers have been involved in neglect yet they continue to operate. Take a stand against this shitty, abusive industry.

WHERE: Thoroughbred Park (outside the gates)

WHEN: Tuesday 5 November – 10:30–12:00

What to bring: Signs, hats/ sun protection. If you can, use public transport as parking is a bit shit.

Please note that this event is not child friendly given the drunks and occasionally hostile (funny that!) people who find horse racing amusing.

And don't forget that Little Oak are putting on the Compassionate Stakes - an ethical alternative to the cruelty of the Melbourne Cup to raise money for the survivors of the horse racing industry cared for by Little Oak:
