To some, the Red Lobster season is again upon us.
Having demonstrated at Red Lobster enough times, I have come to the
conclusion that it is little more than a red herring, doing little but
to divert attention from the real thing, which is Canada, and soaking up
our energy in a side alley if not a dead-end..
Very few driversby and passersby make the connection. Most just think
that it is another KFC- or McDonalds-type demo that might have something
to do with how Red Lobster treats their lobsters!
Another reason is that it only concerns Canadian seafood. I have
written for more than a year that boycotting Canadian seafood alone is
not enough, too self-restrictive, confusing to consumers, and
dispowering to vegetarians and vegans.
I would urge those living outside of Canada to demo in front of
Canadian consulates and embassies towards directly banning the hunt,
and/or at the embassies of E.U. countries towards banning Canadian seal
products - instead of Red Lobster.
The slogan on my "Seal Mobile" when I tour the U.S. is "I AM
CANADIAN, BOYCOTT MY COUNTRY!", not "Boycott the seafood of my country".
BOYCOTT CANADA - the simpler, the better. Just my 2-cent, but I live by
