‘Win It’ Wednesday: New Morrissey Vinyl

Written by PETA | March 4, 2009

Happy “Win It” Wednesday to you! With Canada’s annual seal slaughter looming this month, we decided that a real hero for seals should be featured in our weekly giveaway. Musician and animal rights activist Morrissey has refused to play shows in Canada until the government agrees to stop letting hunters smash in baby seals’ skulls. The former Smiths frontman just released his ninth solo album, Years of Refusal, and we snagged three limited-edition vinyl copies to pass along to you.




How do you win? Post a comment about your favorite thing that Morrissey has done for animals. The three people who post the most heartfelt answers will each win a copy of this limited-edition vinyl.

The contest ends on March 18, 2009, and we’ll contact the winners on March 20, 2009. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. Check back every Wednesday for new prizes. Good luck!

    I feel good that he’s protecting seals

  • Alan D says:

    Morrissey is helping by boycotting Canada. Also didn’t the Smith release an album called Meat Is Murder? I might be wrong but I know that Morrissey stands up for animal rights. Thank you

  • Timothy Sternberg says:

    Morrissey has inspired countless thousands of people.

    After hearing Morrissey talk on the radio recently I have gone vegetarian. He is my inspiration now. I fully support him in everything he does.

  • Kelly F says:

    In an interview with PETA Morrissey said “I always looked at animals and thought they were very much like children and they looked to us always to help them and save them and protect them”. Taking animals and relating them to children gives a perspective that people might be missing. It shows how helpless they are. Morrissey has gone out of his way again and again to show his love for animals. He isn’t just looking for publicity. When he refuses to play in Canada because of the killing of seals he is losing money but his beliefs are more important to him. That is something that I can respect.
