End of summer brings protesters back to Marineland
From the Niagara Falls Review:
No sooner does Brenda Manning start talking about the scorn she’s endured as a Marineland protester over the years than a woman exits her vehicle, glares at her and proceeds to tell her she should “fight for human lives” instead.
Manning offers a smirk, then points out the woman left a child alone in the car.
For Manning, who has been protesting Marineland since the early ’90s, another day in front of the Niagara Falls theme park means another day of insults from random strangers.
“It kind of makes you lose faith in humanity when people throw things at you,” said the St. Catharines activist. “They’ve thrown packs of ketchup, I’ve been hit by a tomato … it just makes me stronger. I feel sorry for those people.”
