30 Bananas a Day!

as if the promotion of dog and cock fighting on amazon isn't bad enough:

jeff bezos et al are into selling whale meat:

anything for a buck, eh?

 

we've boycotted amazon for years now - terminated our associate account (even received an apology from the customer service individual who was clearly against amazon's irresponsible and illegal stance).

 

they need some serious boycotting where it counts!

Dear prad,

Amazon.com claims on its website that it's “always looking for ways to further reduce environmental impact.” What’s not environmentally, or animal, friendly is selling hundreds of whale products -- from endangered fin whales and whales killed in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary -- on Amazon.jp, its Japanese subsidiary.

Clearly, killing endangered whales doesn't serve conservation, but it's also terribly inhumane: These enormous animals can suffer for up to an hour or more after being struck with an exploding harpoon before finally dying.

You can help! Tell Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to do the right thing now: Ban the sale of all whale products on Amazon.jp, and stop profiting from the cruel slaughter of whales!

There's more. Whaling also undermines international treaties, AND it's proven that many of these whale meat products contain levels of mercury higher than Japanese national limits -- a danger to human health.

Enough is enough. As the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon and its subsidiaries have a significant impact, both in terms of the amount of goods sold and through influence on consumers and other businesses. A change in its policy on this issue could make a real difference.

Please take action today and help save whales! Tell Amazon.com to m...

Thank you so much for caring about animals.

Can you explain the goal of boycotting Amazon?

hi jon! nice to hear from you again!


Can you explain the goal of boycotting Amazon?

there is no official amazon boycott, so i can't explain it on those terms.

if it were otherwise, the idea would be the same as any such boycotts (eg nike, mulesing, apartheid in the 80s, british textiles by gandhi), which is to harm the business until the business stops harming others.

 

on a personal level, i just don't do business with many organizations due to their lack of ethical practices (eg walmart, canadian tire, superstore). while my individual actions do not serve to 'harm the business', it serves to accomplish the same objective as not purchasing leather or fur or other things from the corpse industries: i can show others that i am (mostly) cruelty-free in my choices.

 

boycott can be a very effective means of forcing a business to change their ways, but it also helps to educate people on certain realities they subscribe to. so even if the primary goal is not achieved right away, there are many fringe benefits which accumulate over time.

 

in friendship,

prad

 

Prad,

Thanks for sharing this and will continue not to buy from such companies.

Until they smarten up.
