Re: Boston Area and Wordwide Activists Protest Canadian Harp Seal "Hunt!"
09 Mar 2005
There is a growing list of organizations that are joining forces to strengthen the chance of stopping the annual seal "hunt." This unified opposition is comprised of many groups with a variety of missions and strategies - but all agree;
the seal hunts must end immediately and permanently!

One of the major strategies of the collective opposition is to shine the international spotlight on Canada by staging a worldwide protest and boycotting imported seafood. The protest is being held on Tuesday, March 15, 2005, at Canadian embassies and consulates and other locations around the world. Please see the information below for the Canadian consulate and the contact information for the HSUS (The Humane Society of the United States)
The Humane Society is acting as overall coordinator for the International Day of Action - if you have any questions please contact:
