Namibia to face a full onslaught of international boycotts

Leave a comment

In a news article today, Bernard Esau, the Minister of Fisheries announced he plans to increase the quota for the slaughtering of seals.

Esau makes no reference to any scientific justification for the increase, neither does he propose how many jobs will be created. His proposal is a very transparent revenge attack for the pressure being heaped on Namibia over its atrocious seal massacre. Esau himself stands to gain financially from this increase as he and his wife both own shares in a business selling seal skin products. 

The Seals of Nam and our international partners have concurred that for every seal set over and beyond the current quota, we will send out 1 000 emails to various parties informing them of the slaughter and encouraging them to join the international boycott. These emails will include graphic footage and will direct people to write emails to their own governments urging sanctions, trade embargoes and restrictions to be imposed on Namibia. 

We maintain the seals are not responsible for a decline in Hake stocks. We are adamant that the decline is due to the Ministry of Fisheries lack of resource management and failure to curb illegal fishing in Namibian waters. The minister in question has done nothing to address the problem of employment when there are over 1000 fishing applications that are yet to be granted. Furthermore, the Namibian Government is guilty of awarding construction tenders to Chinese businesses as opposed to Namibian companies. It has been established that these Chinese construction companies also have business interests in the seal slaughter industry. 

We reiterate that viable and sustainable eco-tourism will create far more jobs and increased revenue for the people of Namibia. It will lead to large scale investment and will not adversely affect the fisheries at all.

Trapping and Fur. The UGLY truth behind the lies of Fashion

Leave a comment

I put this clip together to expose the shocking truth about the fur industry. Please feel free to share it, repost and get the word out. Hopefully it will touch the heart of at least one person who will stand up and actively do something to put an end to cruelty. It is one thing to talk about opposing cruelty, but DOING something is way more commendable. And rewarding.
