      In just a few weeks, a few thousand Canadian thugs will beat and
      shoot HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of helpless baby seals to death. We must
      not stand by idly!

      Harpseals.org, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the Humane
      Society of the U.S., and several other groups are organizing
      protests in cities all around the world on or around March 15, to
      alert everyone to this atrocity and to the campaign that will
      finally put an end to this slaughter: a boycott of Canadian seafood.

      Please join the protest nearest your town. A list of cities
      currently signed up to host a protest can be found at
      http://www.harpseals.org/helpstop/cityprotest.html
      Other cities are pending confirmation...

      You will find a more comprehensive list at the page above than on
      the HSUS site since they are not listing protests at restaurants and
      stores that sell Canadian seafood. They have not officially begun
      the boycott yet. Harpseals.org has.

      If you don't live near one of the cities listed on this web page,
      you can still organize a protest in your town! It doesn't have to be
      big or time consuming to organize. If you are interested in
      organizing a protest, email us at contact@..., and we'll
      provide you with a protest toolbox.

      Other things you can do:
      •Ask Harpseals.org for leaflets to distribute in your neighborhood.
      •Donate money or raise funds for this campaign. Harpseals.org needs
      to raise $10,000 to begin our big public awareness campaign. This
      money will be used to purchase print ads, radio and tv commercials,
      and billboards alerting the public to the Canadian seafood boycott.
      None of the money is used for salaries. You can make an online
      donation at www.harpseals.org.
      •Donate money or raise funds for the Sea Shepherd's direct action
      campaign for the seals. Visit their web site (www.seashepherd.org)
      for more information and to make a donation.
      •Write letters to the editors of your local papers about the seal
      killing and the boycott.
      •Sign and gather signatures for petitions and post cards to the
      Canadian government. See the Harpseals.org web site for more
      information.
      •Ask your local supermarkets and restaurants to stop carrying
      Canadian seafood. Restaurants that comply can get signs for their
      tables stating their support for the seals from the Humane Society
      of the U.S. (www.hsus.org).
