ENDING CANADA'S ANNUAL COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT: OUR GLOBAL CAMPAIGN TO END THIS INHUMANE SEAL CULL.



MAKE THIS MARCH 2018 COUNT BY ADDING YOUR BACKING AND SUPPORT TO SAVE THE SEALS - Our GLOBAL MOVEMENT TO END CANADA'S ANNUAL COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT!

We at Raise Ur Paw, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not FOr Profit is hoping and depending on your support and backing to join us in leading, which we hope will be, the largest international campaign dedicated to bringing an end to Canada's Annual Commercial Seal Hunt and Stop the inhumane and cruel actions of such a dying industry.  We are encouraging the assistance and participation of compassionate individuals and organizations around the globe, for we believe that we can make a real progress in saving and protecting these sentient beings (seal species) and that through our global movement approach and united voices we can achieve the attention and acknowledgment from the Canadian Government and political figures of power and influence to make this historic step in bringing to an end to this yearly seal slaughter.

WHAT WE AIM TO DO...

    With the participation and active involvement of international support, we have planned for our SAVE THE SEALS Global Movement to:


  • Lobby Canadian Government Officials and Politicians to stop the Canadian Seal Hunt and request their immediate backing and support against the inhumanity and cruelty that this dying industry brings to the lives of these innocent beings, and what threatens and destroys their well-being and lives each year.
  • Aim to encourage other markets, establishments involved and investors to rethink their stand and participation in the demands for seal products.
  • Organizing and becoming involved in imperative campaigns and protests - to raise public awareness and extending the reach for the attention and acknowledgment of the Canadian Government and supportive individuals internationally.
  • Promoting, through the use of materials and resources via social media and media outlets to encourage and empower awareness -- and further the supportive foundation around the world in the works and efforts to find the possible solution to these issues/concerns, and bringing an end to the commercial seal hunt.
Also, we currently have a #SaveTheSeals Global Movement Fundraising T-Shirt Campaign in which individuals like yourselves can either purchase or donate to help the urgent efforts and works to end the commercial seal hunt --- CLICK LINK HERE TO ORDER/DONATE TODAY --- https://www.customink.com/fundraising/savetheseals-movement-campaign



THE PROBLEM AT HAND -- OUTCRIES AND OUTRAGE!

    Each year seal species are not only facing and enduring the threats of environmental issues that are affecting their welfare and well-being, they are also being victimized and killed by the inhumane and cruel process of the annual commercial seal harvest --- being bludgeoned in the head with such tools as hakapiks or shot in order to reach quota to fulfill some demands for seal products.

     This so-called "humane" and "sustainable" harvest, as the Government of Canada and few others, define it to be, is nothing more than a needless and sickening slaughter that is constantly being promoted, defended and financially subsidized by the Government themselves --- even though there is a declining market for such demands and that already major markets internationally have placed bans on the importation of such products.

    But even though there are these facts, and the growing number of outcries and outrage from individuals and animal rights organizations, like yourselves, and the evidence (documentation and graphic images displaying the truth behind the seal harvest) -- the Canadian Government and countless involved, appear to turn a blind eye and ignore what is continuously being presented to them in order to expose and eradicate this dying industry once and for all.


THE TIME TO ACT IS NOW --- JOIN THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT AND PLAY YOUR ACTIVE ROLE!

   So far over 57,000 International Voices have already added their names in assistance to #SaveTheSeals & call upon the Canadian Government to Ban the annual Commercial Seal Hunt --- SIGN AND SHARE TODAY --- https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate  --- We need your support and participation to spread this message and encourage the taking of this pledge worldwide, and help unite all voices in order to achieve this ban of this dying industry.

SAVE THE SEALS: The Global Movement to Combat Canada's Annual Commercial Seal Hunt.

 Today We Need Your Support And Attention ---



   We at Raise Ur Paw, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not For Profit, are tirelessly organizing and presenting to the world (individuals and organizations) our first annual SAVE THE SEALS GLOBAL MOVEMENT in which we are determined to bring internationally this March 2018.

      With this imperative campaign, we are aiming to not only raise public awareness globally, and to expose and combat  the inhumane and cruel actions of those involved with such a seal cull, we have great hopes and beliefs that such a movement will reach the attention and acknowledgment of the Canadian Government to finally pull the plug on this dying industry's life support and make the historic step to ban this commercial seal hunt once and for all.



      These innocent sentient beings' welfare and lives are being threatened each year -- through extreme and inhumane measures, such as being bludgeoned by hakapiks or shot in the head, in order to fulfill unnecessary demands and establish profitable gains from a falling and an almost non-existent market for such seal pelts and products -- with even major markets globally putting bans on such importation on such products as well.  So why does the Canadian Government continue to promote, defend and play active roles in efforts to revive such a dying industry?

Your Support and Imperative Participation Is Urgently Needed ---



     The Save The Seals Global Movement represents the taking of this imperative stand in extending the reach of united voices and actions worldwide to banning and eradicating the needless and unacceptable annual commercial seal hunt within the country of Canada and delivering the message of hope and empowerment that we will not be silenced or ignored --- that we are a united force standing tall and combating inhumanity and cruelty against innocent lives that depend upon us every day.

    We as members of humanity are hoping that we can count on your support and backing -- and that with such international assistance and roles we can win and succeed in this imperative difference.  That we can carry on with the pressure and push on this issue - to not only gain the support and participation of the public globally but also the attention and urgent action from the Canadian Government in order to achieve this aim.

      The Government of Canada needs to acknowledge that this annual commercial seal cull is nothing more than a smudge of negativity and cruelty on the reputation of its country - and a needless and dying industry that they have chosen to turn a blind eye too and ignore for way too long.  It is our voices and actions that will aid them in rethinking their stand, instead of attempting with much efforts to promote, defend and financially support such a cruel and inhumane action -- while ignoring the outcries and outrage worldwide

PLEASE ADD YOUR VOICE AND BACKING TODAY! FOLLOW US ON TWITTER @RaiseUrPaw and message us your support!

So far over 54,000 voices internationally have spoken in support for this imperative ban and have also taken the pledge to #SaveTheSeals ---- CLICK ON LINK TO SIGN AND SHARE PETITION --- https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate

#SAVETHESEALS Global Movement - Open Letter To Government of Canada To Ban Commercial Seal Hunt

Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Honourable Members of Canadian Government:

 RE: CANADA'S COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT

     As a member of humanity, citizen of Canada, and President of Raise Ur Paw, a federally incorporated not-for-profit, I have always believed that our country has been one in which is the best place to reside -- that we as a country believe in the rights of individuals and that life truly means something imperative than just mere existence.  We believe in fairness, compassion and so much more that makes it literally feel like a true family and unity.  A life in which even my daughter should feel proud and empowered to live by.  
           It is with this belief and with the strong hope that this imperative and heartfelt letter will reach your attention and hearts, urging your immediate action to take a historic step to ban the commercial seal hunt and remove any involvement of the Canadian Government's part to the annual seal harvest.   As well as hoping all recipients in whom we have emailed this letter too will support and urge you to do the same as well.

    As political figures of power and influence, and public servants to the people of the country of Canada, like myself and countless others, that you open your hearts and allow our message and voices to reach your humanity --- to observe the reality of the inhumanity and cruelty that goes hand in hand with such a barbaric harvest of life, to view the imperative and numerous evidence that occurs during these annual seal hunts and the major worldwide markets placing bans on the importation of seal products.  How much further does one must go to gain your attention -- how many more lives must endure or be subjected to such inhumanity before such an issue can no longer be ignored?

     These seals, in which are sentient beings are enduring horrific acts of brutality ( even pups which are between the ages of 3 weeks to 3 months old) -- and that the evidence and facts that are constantly being brought through growing documentation and images which present barbaric attacks on them with such instruments as "hakapiks" or shot in the head -- even some claims that some are even skinned while still being alive, as well as major worldwide markets placing bans upon the importation of seal products should be enough proof that grasps your attention for dire action to ban the commercial seal hunt, instead of turning a blind eye, ignore or create attempts to defend and promote in order to keep this dying industry on life support.
and yet it still continues on.....

       This contentious matter should not be something to debate --- or have more decades of individuals and organizations around the globe continuously regurgitate the imperative facts and evidence in order to attempt further to gain your attention, while hundreds of thousands of innocent lives endure this form of cruelty and death in order to fulfill some market that is no longer in demand for.  Today should be the day that we foster a kinder and compassionate world and future for all living beings, and make the efforts to achieve such goals that will better our world, instead of leaving a blemish that will not only jeopardize the lives of such sentient beings but the future generations of ours as well.

    So is this really how we truly want our country to be observed as or have this type of reputation? Do we not want to show and be role-models of compassion and humanity towards innocent life?  

     We believe that it is our duty and responsibility, as individuals and members of the human race to urge with much pressure and urgency to reach out to the Canadian Government and those involved to help make a difference and stop the annual seal hunt - to rethink their stand and remove their participation ( financial through subsidies) and find real solution to this issue, perhaps a federal sealing buyout, instead of continuing down this path that continues to affect our country and the lives of beloved seals.

Let's Make This Historic Step Together To #SaveTheSeals - Over 58,000 International Voices Signed Our Petition already https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate --- Please Also Take The Moment to Show Your Support By Checking Out Our Latest Update As Well - https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate/u/22387592

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP END THE CANADA COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT #SAVETHESEALS


  International opinion of the Canada Commercial Seal Hunt continues to escalate in support of the innocent lives of seal species who each year are slaughtered by being bludgeoned or shot in the head in order to fulfill unnecessary demands of sealers and industries for mere profit and product.  It is due to these horrific actions and nature of such a seal cull, that we are truly hoping to count upon the support and voices of global individuals, organizations, political figures and Governments to urge Canadian Government and Prime Minister to end this dying-industry once and for all.

     As we venture to achieve such a goal, we want to bring attention and reminder to individuals around the world that simple and possible effective steps can help make even the littlest bit of difference in the efforts to finally #SaveTheSeals:

SIGN AND SHARE THE PETITION
   International Support through SIGNING/SHARING of petitions is one step towards helping the cause to #SaveTheSeals, this allows individuals to place their voice among the others and keep up to date on progress in which the organizer of the petition (whether individual or organization) is doing for the efforts to fight against the issue at hand --- 

UPDATE! We have now reached OVER 20,000 International Signatures Calling Upon The Canadian Government to Ban The Commercial Seal Hunt -- Please Continue Signing and Sharing Today & Let's #SaveTheSeals Together!

PLEASE CHECK OUT & SIGN/SHARE OUR PETITION HERE! CLOSE TO 20,000 International Voices & Growing! https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate Do You Have A Second To Help?


EDUCATE YOURSELF THROUGH RESEARCH!
    Educating oneself is an imperative key to fully making an impact to helping save innocent lives.  Through research and observations of sometimes graphic images, permits individuals to, at full extent, acknowledge and open their eyes to the nature of the issue --- and therefore, bringing upon strong knowledge that can assist further in extending the message to bring an end to this dying-industry, and in the recruitment of other individuals to join the ranks.

LET CANADIAN POLITICAL FIGURES & GOVERNMENT KNOW YOUR OPINIONS
    Countless amount of information, documentation,  and images are constantly being brought to surface thanks to the power of internet & the tireless efforts of other individuals, organizations etc --- It is these aspects, along with your own personal concerns and opinions, that desperately need to be brought to the attention of the Canadian Government.

    Another imperative step is to write or phone political figures & Government in Canada to express such opinions and disapproval to this inhumane cull and the Governments involvement through stand and subsidy that they put towards such actions --- and it is up to the voices of the people to urge Canadian Government to put a full ban on the commercial seal hunt, and end their involvement immediately.




#SAVETHESEALS THROUGH SPREADING THE WORD - URGENT
    Even though such a seal cull has being going on for decades, there is still individuals who still do not know that such a harvest exists, or they refuse to acknowledge and accept such actions ---- so it is of importance to spread the word to everyone internationally.

    Steps to achieve this goal is through social media or through word of mouth -- inspiring and encouraging others to be not only voices, but to take action in order to make a possible impact to bringing to an end this "seal harvest" -  Together as one powerful voice, we can make a difference... so let's start spreading the message.

PRESENT YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH DEMONSTRATION
    Unity in numbers can help make a difference --- if you want to do more than just write letters or raise awareness (via social media) there are plenty of organizations and groups in which you can join and check out to see if they are holding any demonstrations or protests within your community or surrounding areas that you can participate in.

     Actively being part of a demonstration shows support and increases the reach and chances at achieving the goal in which is set, even if you find that there is no demonstration that is near you, you can create your own  --- gather resources & materials needed (posters, leaflets etc), recruit other individuals to join in and make a stand with you and take to the streets to educate, encourage, empower and Save! It is as simple as that.

**UPDATE**

We are happy to announce that we will also be selling #SaveTheSeals T-shirts, which will be available for purchase within the next week or so :) All proceeds and contributions gathered from sales will go directly to helping the efforts of the SAVE THE SEALS Campaign - We will keep everyone posted for when more changes occur and when special events are added.
