36 hours to end ocean clear-cuts
I just got an email from the pressure group AVAAZ.org which I though was pretty relevent for on here. The crux of it is:
"Our oceans are being systematically destroyed, and we have 36 hours to raise the alarm. The seafood industry uses long chains of heavy metal disks to drag nets across the sea floor in search of fish, crushing everything in their path. This bottom-trawling is like clear-cutting a forest to catch a parrot -- and only our outcry can stop it.
In two days, UN policy-makers are meeting to review the impacts of this deadly practice. Pacific island nations are fighting to save the oceans and have appealed to Avaaz members to stand with them."
Avaaz are looking for 500,000 signatures for their petition which is growing by the second. At the time of writing it's at 369,968
Signing is simple and can be done here:
