International Seal Hunt Protests 2015

It is that time of year once more when we are calling on individuals, celebrities and organizations to put aside any differences and unite with one common purpose – to protest the remaining commercial seal hunts and to give an unethical industry the middle finger.

Protests are set to take place around the 20th of March 2015. This gives our organisers sufficient time in which to plan their actions.

In this regard we are pleased to announce that the ball is already rolling and we would like to extend our gratitude to the following for their early commitment

We have also received widespread interest from several other leading cities and are currently in the process of vetting those applications. Updates to follow.

As per usual, we will have a dedicated Tweet Sheet as well as an email campaign set up for those unable to attend but who wish to offer their online support. This is not an excuse and we strongly encourage those able to make the physical protests to attend. The online campaign will be complimented by a “ThunderClap” which will give us exponential reach and from which which we intend to reach over 2 million people.

As we get closer to the actual seal hunt protests, a series of press releases will be issued. These will come from both ourselves as well as our regional hosts. We will inform print, broadcast, digital and social media networks of our protests, the reason for them and we shall expose industry propaganda for what it is. We also intend to further promote these protests by posting on various online event calendars.

If YOU are interested in hosting a protest in YOUR city or if you would like to see your organization partner with us and numerous other reputable and internationally recognised bodies, please feel free to contact us.

That said, we welcome any suggestions and we offer our full support for those who need it. We will gladly assist with promotion as well as make ourselves available to answer any questions that may arise.

Thanking you all once again.
