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.

Dear prad,
humane_action_whale_medium.jpg

I am excited to share that as of March 7 -- thanks to hundreds of thousands of action takers worldwide -- Internet giant Amazon.com has officially banned the sale of all whale and dolphin products from its wholly owned Japanese website. Thank you for taking action by asking Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to ban the sale of all whale products on Amazon.jp.

Whaling undermines international treaties, and it's proven that many whale meat products contain levels of mercury higher than Japanese national limits -- a danger to human health. Amazon heard the public loud and clear, and has made the right decision to enact a company-wide ban on the sale of all products derived from whales and dolphins.

Read the press release to learn more about Amazon’s big step forward for animals, and thank you again for standing with Humane Society International to help ensure that whales and dolphins are protected and not sold for profit.

Thank you for all you do for animals,

This is wonderful news!

I am currently reading Howard Zinn's A Power Governments Cannot Suppress, it's very inspirational!  

"We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to
participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world."
