THE SHARK SAFE PROJECT
Hits San Francisco's Chinatown
The Shark Safe Project is starting 2009 "The Year of
the Shark" with a protest demonstration in San
Francisco's Chinatown on January 25th and 26th
(Chinese New Year).
Please join us as we will be picketing several
establishments including restaurants that serve shark
fin soup and shark fin markets.
Bowl of shark fin
soup (contains mercury, mmmm!)
This is intended to be a peaceful
demonstration yet an
aggressive protest to convince these establishments
to cease offering all shark products.
This is what is left
behind to make soup.
We will be carrying signs and handing out leaflets
(written in English and Chinese). Our immediate goal
is to educate the local population of the dangers of
consuming shark fins and the devastation that shark
fining is causing to our oceans. Hopefully convincing
many local citizens to stop consuming shark fin soup
and other shark products and to stop patronizing
establishments that offer such products. Our long-
term goal will be to have city ordinances passed that
prohibit the import and distribution of all shark
products in the city of San Francisco. Making San
Francisco the first "Shark Safe" city in the USA.
One tiny boat and
one days work.
Those of you that cannot attend the demonstration can
still participate by calling the restaurants listed on the
Safe Blog site.
You may call each restaurant and voice your concerns
about their serving shark fin soup and or make a
reservation for a small party for dinner at a certain
time. Then call back 10 minutes before your
reservation time and cancel your reservation and
explain that you are doing so because that
establishment chooses to serve shark fin soup and
that you will be patronizing a different establishment
that does not serve shark fin soup.
Thousands of shark
fins ready to go to markets all over the world.
When calling these restaurants please be firm but
polite and simply voice your opinions. Please do not
make any threats or speak harshly to the employee
that answers the phone, as they more than likely are
not the actual proprietor who makes up the menu or
purchases the supplies for the restaurant. Being rash
or vulgar will not do our cause any good and in fact
would be detrimental to our cause.
are killed every year for soup.
Shark Safe Project's ultimate goal is to seriously
if not eliminate the demand for shark fins globally. It
may take one person at a time, one store at a time,
one street at a time, one city at a time but we must
start somewhere! We are choosing to start in San
it is home of the largest Chinatown outside of Asia.
