PETA protests seal slaughter at Vancouver Olympic clock today
PETA protested at the Vancouver Olympic Clock in downtown Vancouver today, dressing up like 'bloody baby seals' in front of the art gallery at 1pm.
The protest was a quiet but effective one, with four people dressed up as seal with blood surrounding them, people carrying posters and placards, and others handing out leaflets and information. PETA is using the 2010 Olympics as a platform to draw attention to one of the most bloody acts that still happens in Canada.
PETA is targeting the Vancouver 2010 Olympics as they want to shame Canada into banning the seal hunt.
“As the world turns its attention to the Vancouver Games, millions will also focus on Canada’s shame,” said PETA executive vice-president Tracy Reiman.
“If the Vancouver Organizing Committee wants to present a positive image of Canada to the world, it needs to call for an end to the universally condemned seal slaughter.”
PETA has released a new Olympic logo as well.
