CAPS activists: Are you free to help us raise awareness about the imprisoned belugas on Saturday June 6th?
The worldwide Empty the Tanks Day of Action takes place on June 6th. We are are collaborating with Empty the Tanks and we hope you can support the anti-cetacean captivity protests in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Our leaflets against the whales held captive by Sea Life will be distributed as part of the protests. Please let us know if you can take part in these protests or organise protests at any of the other Sea Life centres in the country listed on their website: http://www.visitsealife.com/
We must keep up the pressure on Merlin/Sea Life in the UK while they remain in constant public denial of their hypocrisy about the 3 belugas imprisoned for profit in Shanghai.
SEA LIFE is owned by Merlin Entertainments, the second largest visitor attraction operator in the world, famous for their theme parks and attractions. One of their biggest claims is that they believe no cetacean (whale, dolphin or porpoise) should be held captive, and in fact claim they campaign to end such practices. Merlin own an aquarium operating as part of the SEA LIFE brand which holds these three beluga whales, all of whom are forced to perform daily to crowds in circus-style shows.
We are calling on Merlin to end the public shows and invest some of their multimillion pound profits into building a sanctuary for these poor whales; to show some compassion to these beautiful creatures and stop this public torment!
Please let us know if you are free on 6th June 2015 to join or organise a protest.
