Namibia's Shame

WARNING: This video is sickeningly graphic ...

Namibia Seal Cull 2009

Despite an International outcry, Namibia's annual seal cull is in progress. The media have been banned from covering the event and two foreign journalists have been beaten-up, arrested and fined for attempting to film the slaughter.

Most Namibians couldn't give a shit one way or the other about the Seal Cull - it's not important in their day-to-day struggle to survive, a few protest and write letters to newspapers ...

... and then there are those who are profiting from the killing. They vigorously defend it by chanting the "job creation" mantra and claim that the seal population is depleting the fish stocks off the Namibian coast.

These claims are bullshit - the "jobs" are very temporary and it's humans, not seals, who've ruined the once-rich waters through greedy overfishing ...
