Public pressure is now building for Ms. Lisa Diersen and Ms. Diana De Rosa, Equus Film Festival organizers to either disassociate the Equus Film Festival from the following controversial sponsors, or remove the event from New York City, or else face an organized protest against it next year if it tries to return to New York City.

ALLEGED ASSAILANT MR. DAVE DUQUETTE – ‘PROTECT THE HARVEST”
Here is “Protect The Harvest” employee Mr. Dave Duquette violently snatching a microphone from a credentialed news reporter who was asking panelist Mr. Duke Thorson a question when moderator Ms. Candace Wade and event organizer Ms. Diana De Rosa attempted to censor the reporter who had been informed in writing by event founder Ms. Lisa Diersen, and verbally by event moderator Ms. Candace Wade, that he would be allowed to ask questions from the audience of the panelists at the Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016, panel discussion.
Nephew Eugene also wonders why Ms.Allison Thorson, daughter of Mr. Duke Thorson, was allowed to sit on the Panel, and yet Ms Thorson was not announced as a panelist prior to the event.

Nephew Eugene wonders why Ms. Candace Wade would “attempt” to moderate a panel discussion on a subject she doesn’t know much about.
Nephew Eugene wonders why Ms. Lisa Diersen and Ms. Diana De Rosa would want to sully the Equus Film Festival by having multi-millionaire proponents of Horse Slaughter and “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty (According to native Tennessean MTSU Horse Science Professor and noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, the “Big Lick” is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”) .in New York City when the University of Tennessee wants no part of the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty on display at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee at the annual Homecoming football game.
Please stay tuned for more in-depth coverage as to how and why Equus Film Festival organizers Ms. Lisa Diersen and Ms. Diana De Rosa decided to cater to wealthy multi-millionaires such as “Big Lick” proponent Mr. Duke Thorson and “Protect The Harvest” Founder Mr. Forrest Lucas, a proponent of “Horse Slaughter” in the “Big Apple” and allow them to take over the Equus Film Festival.
