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:
“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!
