Ask Nordstroms to stop carrying fur
Believe it or not, Nordstrom’s carries fur. The Nordstrom’s family claims to support animals and that they only carry fur due to customer demand. Let them know how you feel about Nordstrom’s purchasing the skins of animals that were killed by such methods as drowning, poisoning, strangulation, genital electrocution, and being trapped or beaten to death. Send them an email, or call them and let them know you will not shop at Nordstrom’s until they pledge to stop carrying fur.
Ask the West Seattle Junction Merchants to stop mule rides
West Seattle is having a family holiday festival with many lovely activities, but on December 2nd and 16th they are hosting mule carriage rides. Please take a minute to email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them to leave the mule carriage rides out this year. They are cruel and inhumane.
Tell L.L. Bean to Go Fur-Free
L.L. Bean still sells fur-lined hats and gloves. A company that has been around for 100 years should know better than to support the incredibly cruel fur industry. Refuse to shop at L.L. Bean until they make the compassionate decision to go fur-free.

Stop South Korea from killing whales before it’s too late
On December 3, the South Korean government will consider a proposal to establish its own ‘scientific’ whaling program. The first harpoons could be fired in less than six months. It’s up to us to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Backed by what remains of its old whaling industry and countries like Japan, South Korea’s fisheries ministry is pushing hard to resume whaling. But this is the Prime Minister’s decision and government sources have indicated that “other issues” will be considered. That means political pressure.
Last summer, when South Korea announced to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) that it would begin ‘scientific’ whaling, there was an uproar around the world with governments voicing concern and thousands of articles appearing in the press. This is because ‘scientific’ whaling, which never produces data needed for management of whales, is widely seen as a fraud and an excuse to prolong the dying industry of commercial whaling.
Tell the Prime Minister of South Korea that there is no place for the needless slaughter of whales in the 21st century and to block his country’s plans to establish a ‘scientific’ whaling program.
