Now that the baby harp seal slaughter in Canada is over for this year, the Canadian fishermen who did the dastardly deeds are going back to their "noble" fishing professions as if nothing happened. They present themselves as people who are just killing baby seals out of tradition and "culture". Their true motivation is greed.

The "culture" of killing innocent creatures for money needs to be immediately and forever changed. An international boycott of Canadian seafood is underway. People around the world are taking a stand against this evil slaughter and are showing the Canadian fishermen that they are better off sticking with their nine months of fishing and put their boats and killing instruments into port for three months. They can go to school for the three months they have off each year and educate themselves into professions that don't butcher baby mammals.

Even if you are a vegetarian, you can still help with the boycott of Canadian seafood. You can spread the word to all your friends and family, post flyers on bulletin boards, talk to your local grocery store manager. The main focus on the United States boycott right now is Red Lobster. They are refusing to join the boycott. Please contact Red Lobster at: to express your opinion. Also, the big chain supermarkets are a big focus of this campaign. Kroger owns most of the large supermarkets in the United States. You can contact them at and ask them to join the boycott.
