Operation Cyber-Storm

Here is an excellent and easy way to take direct action on behalf of the animal martyrs of Berger Blanc; it will only take a few minutes of your time.
We will be sending emails, in massive numbers, to a municipal administration complicit in animal cruelty in order to demand the return of the sculpture, Gerald Ironhands, a piece art that shows the apathy of the Tremblay administration with regards to the management of public pounds.
Please share massively in order to make this cyber-tempest a veritable tornado!
WHEN: Wednesday, June 27th 2012, from 9am to 4pm.

objectives of the operation:

  • Demand that the city put the symbolic sculpture, Gerald Ironhands, back in its place in the entrance of City Hall.
  • Demand the establishment of a public pound in Montreal.
  • Increase the pressure to counter the apathy and inaction of the city of Montreal with regards to the Berger Blanc file.

influential persons to joint by email in the city of montreal, in order of importance:

Gérald Tremblay – Mayor

On Thursday, April 19th, under the impotent surveillance of the building’s security, SPA Canada infiltrated Montreal’s City Hall with a piece by sculpture artist Tony Fortin as a form of protest against the mayor’s apathy with regards to the public pound file.

This work, of a minimal value of $5000, was given to the Tremblay administration to mark the first anniversary of the broadcast of the horrific scenes documented during SPA Canada’s investigation of Berger Blanc.

Despite the conditions imposed at the time of the donation, Gerald Tremblay decided to remove this symbol of the deficient practices he implicitly condones.

Which is why SPA Canada and the citizens of Montreal demand that their municipal leaders recognize their own inaction by re-exposing the work of art, a tribute to the memory of the 25 000 animals killed at Berger Blanc each year.
