Save the Shark Protest Scheduled for San Francisco’s Chinatown

Do you like shark fin soup? Some folk do, especially in San Francisco. But the people behind the Shark Safe Project DO NOT approve. So they’ve skedded a Shark Finning Protest Demonstration for January 25th in the heart of Chinatown.

Will San Francisco become the first “Shark Safe” city in the USA? Looks like we’re on our way

And will the graffiti kids switch from girafa to friendly, smiling shark?

    how cool is it that google’s ad on this page is for ‘online chinese food’, provided by several of the very restaurants that serve shark fin soup?! how clever!

    Haha. Yes, that’s the way the system is set up.

    Ironical things like that just happen sometimes – I didn’t do it on porpoise.(Mmmmm…. porpoise)
