Subject: New strategy re. Red Lobster
In view of the upcoming Red Lobster Week of Action in September
(Thank you Andrea!), And given Red Lobster's steadfast refusal to join the
boycott, I would like to suggest that we change our message from
"RED LOBSTER, PLEASE JOIN OUR BOYCOTT AGAINST THE CRUEL CANADIAN SEAL
"RED LOBSTER SUPPORTS THE CRUEL CANADIAN
SEAL HUNT! BOYCOTT RED LOBSTER!!"
The new Grassroots Anti-Seal-Hunt Coalition, currently comprising
about a dozen leading AR groups in as many leading mid-western and
western cities, will be making this change in this week of action. Some,
e.g. IDA, have already made this change since the last Red Lobster demo at
the end of July in Portland, Oregon. We feel that Red Lobster, which boils
thousands of lobsters alive everyday, has about as much compassion as the
Canadian government. So if boycotting Canada is the best strategy
regarding Canada, then boycotting Red lobster is the best strategy
regarding Red Lobster.
We hope that we will all give Red Lobster this unmistakable message
in September, in unison, from coast to coast.
