BAN THE CRUEL SEAL TRADE
TAKE ACTION NOW!

Tell your MEP to vote for a total ban on trade in seal products

Dear …,

I am writing because I urgently need your help.

This Spring, the European Parliament will vote on a historic
proposal to ban EU trade in seal products — a ban that would
save millions of seals from cruel commercial slaughter.

On 2nd March, the Internal Markets and Consumer Protection
Committee (IMCO) of the Parliament will decide what amendments
should be made to the ban proposal. This vote is critical: what
IMCO decides next Monday will determine what the entire
Parliament will vote on from now.

Contact your MEPs and ask them to vote to save seals.

The issue should be clear cut for IMCO. After all, a record 425
MEPs have called for a strong ban on seal product trade
. But
some members of IMCO are seeking to undermine the proposal, and
have put forward amendments that would reduce the ban to a
toothless labeling scheme — which would allow the cruel seal
product trade to continue.

Your MEPs sit on IMCO

, and in the lead up to the Parliamentary
elections, your voice counts more than ever. Please let your
MEPs know that you support an unconditional prohibition on seal
product trade, and that you will not accept anything less.
 

 

In just a few weeks time, Canada’s commercial seal slaughter
will begin. The European Union holds the power to save the seals
and stop this cruelty forever.

Please demand that your MEPs take a stand for the seals and vote
in favour of the amendments put forward by Arlene McCarthy MEP
(Chair of the IMCO Committee) which support an unconditional
prohibition on seal product trade.
 

 

With kind regards,

Rebecca Aldworth
Director
Humane Society International/Canada
