Today’s blog features guest blogger, peta2 UK’s Violet…

As the bloody seal hunt is once again underway in Canada, our dear friend Morrissey is once again defending the animals who will meet a brutal end at the hands of hunters. I won’t go on any longer, because anything I can say, good old Moz can say in a much more eloquent and charming fashion! See his statement below:

morrissey.jpg“As we all know. the psychologically and constitutionally sickening Canadian seal-kill has started and is once again in full-cry. The horror of the Canadian seal-kill is untranslatable, and although I fully realize that highly concentrated evil exists in other countries – Japan’s dolphin slaughter, Iceland’s newly-revived whaling, the cat-skinning trade in Switzerland, and China with just about every injustice imaginable – there is something especially menacing about Canada’s seal-kill.”

Loyola Sullivan (Canada’s Ambassador for Fisheries Conservation) is a man of glacial coldness who claims that the seal-kill is “humane” – a view he might alter if his own skull were cracked open with a spiked axe. The fact that the seal-kill provides a livelihood for fishermen is an insultingly dim excuse for it to take place – after all, the German gas chambers of World War 2 also provided work for someone. The seal-kill takes place to satisfy greed for fur-pelts.”

Morrissey is not alone, as Kasabian too join the fight against the seal hunt and indeed, fur in general. Frontman Tom Meighan said, “I think its just common sense really. I mean, of course I don’t think it’s OK to smash a baby seal’s skull. I don’t wear fur, it’s such an ugly thing to do.”

Kasabian, Morrissey, peta2 UK salutes you!

    Morrissey,
    I have no clue who you are or what you do, I just came across this page when my friend left her computer on at our work. I don’t eat meat and cryed so hard when I seen the seals slaughtered on television once. Good for you! I try to educate the ones around me about the money market on killing animals. I don’t seem to get through anyone though, they just keep eating are precious animals. Thanks.

    The way he speaks, you wouldnt guess he left school at 16 with just one CSE in woodwork!! he is undoubtably the most passionate vegetarian celeb out there!
    “Eating meat is the most disgusting thing I can think of. It’s like biting into your grandmother.”
    love it x

    Morrissey is not only The Maestro but obviously a man of great compassion. The Seal hunt is just so obviously wrong I don’t know how anyone could condone it.

    I love this quote “”Nobody can come up with a good argument for eating animals nobody can. People as some kind of a joke say, well, It’s tasty,’ but it’s only tasty once you garnish it and you put salt and pepper, and you cook it, and you have to do 300 things to it to disguise its true taste. If you put garnishes on a chair or fabric, it would probably taste quite nice.” by Morrisey :)

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
