Demos in Nanaimo Courtenay Victoria

Three public demonstrations opposing the Canadian commercial seal hunt will take place on Vancouver Island this weekend. On Saturday, March 14, 2009, Nanaimo residents will gather at 1 pm at the Downtown Nanaimo Library on Commercial Street for a Walk for Seals. In Courtenay, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Citizen Support for Marine Mammal Protection (CSMMP) are organizing a "Not With Our Tax Dollars!" demonstration at Cliffe Avenue and the 17th Street Bridge at 2:30 pm on Saturday, March 14. The Victoria Walk for Seals on Sunday, March 15, will begin at noon on Centennial Square by City Hall and walk to the Legislature.

Hundreds of people will gather and take to the streets in Victoria, Nanaimo, and Courtenay this weekend to peacefully demonstrate, joining thousands of other compassionate people in over 40 countries around the world in solidarity against the senseless and barbaric slaughter of baby seals! Canada has now the distinction of being "the most protested country on earth" and the commercial seal slaughter is the one and only reason why! If you can, please come out this Saturday to show the world that there are Canadians who are extremely upset by this barbaric slaughter. We must never stop protesting until the Government of Canada comes to their senses and cancels the commercial seal hunt, relegating it to the very darkest pages of our history books forever!
