In the run up to Halloween and Xmas, GAAIA will be organising a series of protests outside supermarkets and the head office of RSPCA Assured/Freedom Food (who certify 70% of Scottish salmon farms as welfare friendly). The message from protestors is simple: stop shooting seals for salmon meals!
"People still buying Scottish salmon have blood on their hands," said Don Staniford, Director of the Global Alliance Against Industrial Aquaculture. "Next time you're in a supermarket or restaurant please ask whether a seal died for your salmon meal. Read my lips - eating Scottish salmon is the kiss of death for seals and leaves a bad taste in the mouth."
To volunteer and for more information on the protests please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please sign a petition "RSPCA: End your support for the killing of Scottish Seals"
