Original event invitation starts here:
Unless you live under a rock, you know that Lennox is a dog that was wrongfully seized and who has been sentenced to death after a 2 year battle to save him. All attempts to return Lennox to his family have failed. There are numerous petitions, letter writing campaigns and phone-in campaigns. It’s time to take it to the streets in support of the Save Lennox campaign.
This event is being organized by the Oreo’s Law Task Force, a project of No Kill New York. We chose to launch the event from the Oreo page because we hope that Oreo’s spirit and memory will shine on our endeavor. It is also our wish to let the people who hold Lennox’s life in their hands that the animal advocacy community never forgets an injustice. The campaign to honor Oreo’s memory started in 2009 and is still going strong today.
On Monday, July 9, 2012 @ 10:00 am we will gather at the British Consulate Office in New York City. When the Consulate closes at 12:00 Noon, we will move the protest to the Irish Consulate Office and continue there.
