Infamous Marineland Billboard the Scene of Protest Action

With the city council of Niagara Falls recently handing over more public land to Marineland, activists working to oppose the captive marine mammal park are bringing their fight to the city itself.  Six activists took over a street corner in the busy Fallsview tourist district Saturday afternoon.

Under the very shadow of the dilapidated sculpted orcas affixed to the "Let's all go to Marineland" billboard, advocates handed out hundreds of leaflets to citizens and tourists making their way through the area during the Labour Day long weekend.

Many stopped to read and discuss the information on the pamphlet with the activists who were eager to engage the more curious passersby with further dialogue about Marineland.  Signs were also used where for the very first time anyone passing by could text a phone number to automatically receive a link sent to their phone which provides further information on the park.  Activists plan on continuing this action throughout the weekend and in the future at high profile locations throughout the city of Niagara Falls.
