Over 4000 people marched alongside our ADI Colombia team on 10 May, in support of the ban on animals in circuses and the reform of the out of date animal protection law.

Citizens and local groups travelled from all over the country to Bogotá for the march that started in the Planetarium and ended in the Plaza de Bolivar. Several congress members from all political parties and local politicians attended the event.
High profile celebrities, such as the renowned soap opera actress Margarita Ortega, joined ADI in support of the circus ban and inviting to the march. Once the march concluded, ADI along with other representatives of local groups went into the Congress to read a statement in support of this new legislation.

A few days after the march, the Colombian Police gave a commendation to ADI in recognition to our "leadership in the development of activities for the protection of animals". ADI holds weekly information stalls throughout the city to spread the word on the Stop Circus Suffering campaign.
A big thank you to all those people who joined us in the march!
