Video: 'Shut it down!' Activists storm Ontario's Marineland

Marineland: SHUT IT DOWN!

Hundreds of activists protested on October 7 at Marineland's last day of the season beginning with a rally featuring Ric O'Barry, former Flipper trainer turned dolphin rescuer and star of the Academy-Award winning The Cove and ex-Marineland trainer Phil Demers. Protesters then stormed Marineland and stopped the dolphin "show" -- a modern day re-enactment of the stroming of the Bastille prison in Paris in 1789.

Ric O'Barry said the protests were a "demonstration of compassion" and that he wished elected officials "would show as much compassion as the people who put them in office." O'Barry would like to see the prohibition of the use of marine mammals in so-called amusement parks.
