ACRES Concert to save the wild dolphins at RWS!

Resorts World, Sentosa continues to turn a deaf ear to the pleas of Singaporeans and international organisations to do the right thing and release the 25 wild dolphins.

So we think it’s time all the animal lovers—indeed, everyone who believes in fair play—come together and speak as one.

ACRES is hosting a concert in the park to raise awareness, to make ourselves heard and most importantly, to show our solidarity with the dolphins.

Several prominent bands and musicians, including Jack and Rai, Sixx, D’Fusion, Zal Empty, Alicia Pan and Michaela Therease are donating their precious time and talent for the dolphins’ benefit.

We need you there too.

We will gather together to form the shape of a giant leaping dolphin for the cameras. And we will sing, ‘Please let the dolphins go’, together, in one loud voice.

So, dear animal lover, please join us there on Sunday, 28th August at 4.30 pm.

And bring as many of your family and friends as you can. There will be music, food, drinks and fun. You can even make a picnic of it.

The more of us there are, the bigger that dolphin on the ground, the stronger our voice, and the louder the signal we can send.

We must not let RWS, or any corporation in the future, get the idea that they can simply get away with abduction and exploitation of wild animals for profit.

Sunday, 28 August 2011
4:30pm at
Hong Lim Park, Exit A of Clarke Quay MRT
The event is free of charge.

Please wear our black campaign t-shirt which explicitly says, “Resorts World, please let the dolphins go”. You can pick them up at the concert for $20. We understand that not everyone can buy a t-shirt, so just come in a black top otherwise!

We hope to see you there.
