Fantastic new: Canada stopped the seal slaughter! After 37 years os struggling to end this bloody massacre it finnally came to an end!
There's a lot more work to be done but this means we're getting near to a more fair and human society, this means progress!
I hope people stop using fur, specially celebrities that unfortunatelly use them and are a fashion icon what can inspire other people to wear fur too.
But this is a clear signal o progress.
Thanks to all of the animal lovers that made this victory a reality!
Here's an excert from a commentary done by captain Paul Watson:
"The Canadian seal slaughter is commercial-dead and it will have no place in the 21st Century. This anachronistic barbaric enterprise is being tossed into the dustbin of history where it belongs, and finally after a lifetime of struggle to end it, this obscene embarrassment is for all intents and purposes – dead.Thanks to the fact that seal products are banned in the USA, Europe and Russia, the worldwide market has crashed.Through visuals, through drama and through the media we made the world aware of this atrocity against marine wildlife and we kept them aware, reminding the international public that our passion for the cause never died. Year after year we were in the face of the killers and year after year we grew stronger as the killers grew weaker.We have won. The seals have won. The Canadian seal hunt is dead!
Long live the seals.
Now we need to stop the slaughter of the South African fur seals in Namibia. "
