On October 18th the ProtectSeals team will go on trial for documenting
> Canada's commercial seal hunt.
>
>
> After being repeatedly charged by a sealing vessel in March 2006, seven
> Humane Society International/HSUS observers were accused of being within
> the
> required 10- metre distance from seal hunters. We were not, and we have
> the
> evidence to prove it.
>
>
> These trumped-up charges are part of the government's desperate campaign
> to
> block observation of the hunt. Just months ago, the DFO proposed to double
> the distance observers must remain from seal hunters, making documenting
> cruelty violations even more difficult. And now the DFO wants to give the
> Minister of Fisheries and Oceans even more power to refuse any person an
> observation permit for the seal hunt - for any reason - for five years.
>
>
> The government and sealers are desperate. One by one, nations are closing
> their markets to Canadian seal products, while legions of individuals and
> companies are joining the boycott of Canadian seafood. The Canadian
> government and sealing industry know they must do something to take the
> pressure off.
>
>
> But rather than address the extreme cruelty we document each and ever
> year,
> they are trying to eliminate that documentation.
>
>
> We need your help. We are fighting for our rights to be there for the
> seals
> and to expose the illegal abuse that is unleashed on the unsuspecting baby
> seals each year, but we cannot do it alone.
>
>
> Please show your support. We are inviting you to submit a statement of
> support and testimonials against the seal hunt to be displayed on Humane
> Society International Canada's website. Help us demonstrate to the
> Canadian
> government that the world is watching and that it can no longer hide the
> cruelty of the seal hunt. Please send your comments to info@hsicanada.ca
