PETA protesters aren't sorry they tried to stop the SeaWorld float at the Rose Bowl Parade 2014 on Wednesday morning. KNBC confirmed that 10 people were arrested during the incident and those folks were put in a van to be hauled off. So what do protesters do after such a big ordeal? Well, take a selfie and post it on Twitter. Right after being arrested those individuals who allegedly caused an issued posted a picture from the police van.
“From the POLICE VAN,” tweeted PETA from the organizations official Twitter account on Wednesday. “Some brave PETA activists who got arrested protesting @ SeaWorld at #RoseParade! #NeverBeSilent.”
Extra security was present for the SeaWorld float and protesters had promised to be vocal. However besides the chanting and stopping the parade for a few minutes, it was overall peaceful. The Rose Bowl Parade is seen on a national level and it was the perfect place to highlight the disliked treatment of the whales.
There hasn’t been word on whether the protesters will be charged for stopping the parade. It’s doubtful as the individuals has so much support in Pasadena. People watching on television might not have seen it, but fans watching the parade were booing when the SeaWorld float rolled by. These folks were the average people who might travel to the theme park to see the animals so it's obvious PETA's message is getting out to the world.
