I'd donate money too for someone to represent me (us) at such a demo whether as pay for a person or for food/ drinks/ transport. I'm all for going through formal channels but believe a variety of techniques might be needed. One thought would be for the protest to invovle those who can't travel -- if someone has a Wi-Fi connection and a computer and is able to hook up to people remotely who have a computer and camera, a virtual protester could be present. Also, see the 2009 Academy-winning documentary -- 'The Cove' -- about the killing/ abuse of dolphins. Whether you agree with it or not, that one scene at the end where Flipper's original trainer walks into the packed international meeting wearing a video monitor on his chest showing the dolphins dying -- is one powerful statement. The new cameras and media people gathered there followed him as he walked around.
