To protest the arrival of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus in Orange County PETA's Meggan Anderson stripped down and donned shackles to stage a protest, according to the OC Weekly. Said Anderson: "I'm here to expose what the circus is so desperate to hide from the public. These animals have been beaten and deprived of their precious freedom for a lifetime of cheap tricks." The circus begins at the end of the month at the Honda Center, and other protests are slated for July 28, 31, and August 1 there. A protest, dubbed "The Greatest Protest on Earth" is planned for L.A. this Wednesday, July 14th at 5 p.m., to mark the arrival of the circus to the Staples Center.
