MAKAH THUGS WALK! NO JAIL TIME & WHALING RIGHTS INTACT!! EMAILS NEEDED, ASAP!!!
SEATTLE--Thursday evening, March 27th, 2008
3 of the 5 Makah tribesmen accused of illegally killing a Gray whale in Sept., 2007 pleaded guilty to the crime and will be given NO JAIL TIME along with the CONTINUED *RIGHT* TO SLAUGHTER GRAY WHALES IN THE FUTURE!!!
2 others are awaiting "sentencing." There is no doubt that they will receive the same: KISS-ON-THE-HAND-AND-YOU'RE-FREE-TO-BUTCHER-AGAIN pass!
WHAT AN OBSCENITY!!!
It is essential that we FLOOD the U.S. Attorney's Office (WHO IS PROSECUTING THIS CASE) with EMAILS, FAXES & PHONE CALLS DEMANDING that the Makah Tribe's whaling rights be forever REVOKED! This prosecutor folded and caved in to the Makah's powerful connections in high places. The only way to reverse such corruption is for the public to STAND UP and be counted! Back-room deals made by powerful politicians and others on behalf of the Makah Tribe MUST BE THWARTED this time!!
THE MAKAH RECENTLY RELEASED A STATEMENT SAYING THEY ARE PREPARING FOR ANOTHER 'HUNT' WITHIN THE NEXT 24 MONTHS! Since NOAA nor any other government agency has yet to give them the proper waiver necessary to continue whaling, it seems evident that the Makah know something the rest of us do not!!
REMEMBER FOLKS, THIS IS THE TRIBE WHO ACTING *ALONE* HAD GRAY WHALES REMOVED FROM THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST!!!
It appears they have a direct line to the White House!
YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW THAT THE MAKAH'S ONLY REASON FOR HUNTING GRAY WHALES IS TO SELL THE WHALE MEAT TO JAPAN FOR BIG $$$!! IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CULTURE OR TRADITION--JUST PLAIN OL' GREED! IT ALSO BREAKS THEIR OWN TREATY AGREEMENT AND INTERNATIONAL LAW!
PLEASE ASK EVERYONE YOU KNOW (no matter where you live or what country you're from)...FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHERS, TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO PHONE, FAX OR EMAIL U.S. ATTORNEY JEFFREY SULLIVAN.
A MIGHTY PUBLIC OUTCRY IS DESPERATELY NEEDED TO COUNTERACT THIS DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS FARCE OF A TRIAL AND TO CIRCUMVENT THE CORRUPT POLITICAL POWER OF THIS TRIBE. PLEASE KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THE U.S. ATTORNEY UNTIL MAKAH WHALING IS HISTORY! EMAIL OFTEN!! THE MAKAH WILL BE COUNTING ON PUBLIC OUTRAGE TO DIE DOWN (as has happened in the past) SO THEY CAN CONTINUE WITH THEIR COWARDLY SLAUGHTER.
U.S. ATTORNEY JEFFREY SULLIVAN
DEMAND THAT IN LIGHT OF THIS EXTREMELY BRAZEN AND EVIL ACT,
TRUE JUSTICE BE DONE AND THE MAKAH IMMEDIATELY LOSE ANY FUTURE RIGHT TO CONSIDERATION OF AN MMPA WAIVER; THUS CLOSING THE LEGAL OPPORTUNITY FOR WHALING, PERMANENTLY.
I CANNOT STRESS HOW IMPERATIVE IT IS TO LET U.S. ATTORNEY JEFFREY SULLIVAN KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS ASAP! If no one protests, then the MAKAH TRIBE WILL KILL AGAIN--LEGALLY--WITHIN THE NEXT 24 MONTHS!! YOUR VOICE OF OUTRAGE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!
The concept of 'animal rights' values the simple premise that ALL living creatures have a "right" to be allowed to live their lives without victimization--free from brutality. It is a right that EVERY being strives for.
"Humanely" slaughtered 'meat', is an obscene lie invented and perpetuated by people who are too lazy, selfish and cruel to change their dietary habits. Forcibly denying a creature its right to life, love and companionship can NEVER be humane.
