36 horas para frenar la devastación de nuestros océanos

Nuestros mares están siendo diezmados: la pesca de arrastre de profundidad sigue arrasando los fondos oceánicos, dejando a su paso enormes desiertos marinos. Dentro de 36 horas se celebra una importante reunión de la ONU en materia de pesca, que podría significar un punto de inflexión en la lucha para acabar con la insensata destrucción de los océanos. Pero hace falta que alcemos nuestras voces urgentemente.

Es el momento de pasar a la acción >

A los miembros de la Asamblea General de la ONU :

Como ciudadanos globales comprometidos con el planeta, les pedimos que apliquen y hagan cumplir sus obligaciones previstas en las resoluciones de la ONU sobre pesca, y tomen medidas para prohibir la destructiva práctica de la pesca de arrastre de profundidad. Les solicitamos que comiencen una nueva era de responsabilidad y compromiso con nuestros océanos, haciendo que todas las naciones cumplan sus promesas de proteger los mares y frenar su devastación.

To members of the UN General Assembly:

 

As concerned global citizens, we call on you immediately to implement and enforce your obligations to the UN resolutions on fishing and work to ban the destructive practice of deep-sea bottom-fishing. We urge you to usher in a new era of accountability and commitment to our injured oceans by steadfastly holding other nations to their promises to protect oceans and curb devastation.

Our oceans are being systematically destroyed, and we have 36 hours to raise the alarm. The seafood industry uses long chains of heavy metal disks to drag nets across the sea floor in search of fish, crushing everything in their path. This bottom-trawling is like clear-cutting a forest to catch a parrot — and only our outcry can stop it.

In two days, UN policy-makers are meeting to review the impacts of this deadly practice. Pacific island nations are fighting to save the oceans and have appealed to Avaaz members to stand with them. This is our chance to win — if enough of us speak out now, it will strengthen their hand against big fishing countries, and will embolden serious players like the US and Australia, who have already banned bottom-trawling in their waters, to push for protection everywhere.

Let’s build an urgent call to stop the senseless destruction of our oceans — and delegates will deliver our voices directly to the UN meeting. Sign now on the right and help us reach half a million voices in the next 36 hours:

  • : Ecología y sostenibilidad socioambiental, énfasis en conservación de ríos y ecosistemas, denuncia de impacto de megaproyectos. Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
