14. Know the history:
Seal clubbing ended in the US
in the 70's...
Public Outrage Forced Ban on Vessel-Based Seal Hunting
Not until the 1980s did inhumane seal hunting practices, including clubbing and shooting of baby “whitecoat” harp seals, begin to foment public outrage.
The European Parliament banned the import of baby harp seal pelts from Canada in 1984. Meanwhile, the Britain-based (IFAW) called for a boycott of all Canadian seafood that same year. These actions forced the Canadian government to ban vessel-based seal hunting in Canadian waters (although land-based seal hunting was still allowed),
Recently Greenland has banned
the import of Canadian seal pelts.
Expose the role of the NY Times, Boston Globe,
Chicago Sun, LA Times, Fox and
other warmonger media in
mongering the pelts of these
butchered creatures and of other animals dying in traps or factory farms
so that their skins can be ripped off of them. Media has tried to obscure the role
of furriers and focus only on the fishermen in assigning blame.

group and business in Canada and around the world.
Call talk radio to talk to their audiences.
Consider your own special action.
Year after year Canadian fishermen
have said 'screw you' to the rest
of the world. It's time to show
them where the power lies.
God who indwells all beings... all of us have in some way
harmed Your innocents through eating them, stealing their
milk and eggs, through driving on them, through neglecting them
We ask a firefall of Your grace to end now and forever
this savage clubbing or Your beloved seals and to end now and forever
all violence to any being.
