To the big screen – Giant messaging in Brussels and Strasbourg

Because bigger is better, we set up a giant LED screen in Brussels – twice – and in Strasbourg.

The screens broadcasted our message non-stop during a few days each time, called to sign the online petition and summarized our main arguments. We made a point to suggest the violent of the hunt rather than bluntly showing violence, and after years spent observing seals and their family, we had plenty of cute images to show!

In Strasbourg, the screen was up from 8.00 to 10.00 pm every days leading to the vote. And as soon as the text was adopted, we found time to change the film to a new one thanking MEPs for their historic decision!

Reaching out to the public – seals distribution

Public support – and strong images – were reinforced when we distributed thousands of fluffy baby seal toys before the major IMCO Committee vote in Brussels, and before the Plenary vote in Strasbourg.




IMCO Committee vote

While our hostesses handed out thousands of fluffy seals at the entrances of the European Parliament and on Place Luxembourg, each IMCO MEP received one at the door of its desk, complete with its fake voting card which summarized our main arguments!

Plenary vote

When it was time to go to Strasbourg for the vote in Plenary, we distributed again thousands of seals at the doors of the European Parliament buildings… and put our doorhandle “position paper” on each door of each MEP’s office!
