Circus protest was over the top

Sir,

I want to express my outrage at a group of animal rights protesters who stood outside the Circus Sydney recently.

While I've always admired people who stand up for what they believe in, I do not appreciate having it rammed down my throat.

I took my child to the circus and the protesters completely blocked the entrance, forcing us to squeeze past them.

They made many people feel so uncomfortable that mothers and fathers were climbing over the barrier and carrying their children down a hill because they didn't want to have to force their way through the protesters.

Have your protest, it's your right, but don't stop people who have made a decision to attend from going into the circus.

People will have a lot more respect for you if you allow them to make their own decisions.

Yours etc.,
