Children and Politicians at IFAW's Rally to Ban Seal Products

Zeehondenactieplein3sm_2

Three Dutch members of parliament and dozens of school children participated in IFAW's
campaign for a European ban on Seal products on 1 April 2008 in The Hague, The Netherlands. 
The parliamentary members from the liberal, social, and social democratic parties
demonstrated their support by climbing up a ladder to place puzzle pieces in the form of European 
countries on a large billboard map, symbolizing the European countries that currently 
do not have a ban on seal products.  The children cheered and waved European flags
in the air as each member took on the brave task of climbing the ladder to the top.

It is heartbreaking to know that the government our citizens elected would continue this aberation of humanity. The cruelty which they attempt to hide by disallowing observers is self-evident, and the "science" they use to support this horrendous cruelty is invalid and biased. Other employment opportunities must be created for the "hunters", and this practice stopped!
Please keep up your protest!
I will, as well.
Horrified in Canada

This blog is about the seal hunt and only the seal hunt. It is not about factory farming, vegans, other animal species, how smart you think you are, or how stupid you think someone else is. If you need to debate, debate the issue of the seal hunt and not the issue of each other.
If you had (a) post(s) deleted, it was because they contained more than just seal hunt discussion. If you are opposed to IFAW's position, you are free to express your opinions, but if you attack another poster or veer off-topic, your post will be deleted.
Anyone who thinks I've deleted their comment in an attempt to "silence" them is incorrect. Your comment was deleted for a reason I've already listed. Write your comment again, refrain from mocking other participants in the conversation, and your post will remain.

This is absolutely inhumane and seriously sick. I am so humiliated to say I live in a country that lets this happen. The ones that actually club and kill these seals must be insane and in need of serious help. How else could they do this and sleep at night???

As a tax payer and animal (innocence) lover I am absolutely disgusted that the government is actually making us pay the tab for this mass murder of beautiful defenseless creatures. If man could do such evil to an innocent creature like, then what would he do to his own kind???
These people disgust me who do the killing
MOVE TO A DIFFERENT PROVINCE AND BE REAL MEN (IF U KNOW HOW) AND.....
GET A REAL JOB!!!!!!!!!!LOSERS!

I AM CANADIAN!!! I AM CIVILIZED!!!
You must remember that this seal hunt is only condoned in Atlantic Canada the least populated provinces in this country.
HOWEVER PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT STOP PROTESTING!! I BEG KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Sooner or later the uncivilized portion of Canada will wake up and realize this is not okay. It is not okay to beat a dog,cat,cow,pig or anyother animal for that matter why is it okay to beat a seal like this I just don't understand??

Is this part of civilization? If so, I prefer to stay in my primitive hole, because the human nature embarrasses me with. We should do the same to these hunters just to let them know how it fells.
I don't have words to describe this... It is just abominable

Again Matt, you don't know what you're talking about. If the European market is so insignificant, why is the DFO fighting so hard to keep this from passing?

You guys think you're so important. Pshaw.

Thank you for your opposition to the annual cruelty and barbarism of the seal hunt in Newfoundland. I hope that the EU will eventually support a ban of importing products from this hunt.
