This year’s WoDEF was different but brilliant
WoDEF 2020 took place on 28 March. The Covid-19 health crisis obviously disrupted this year's events. All around the world more than a hundred events were planned in public spaces in order to highlight the cause of aquatic animals and demand an end to massacring them. Despite this dramatic situation, an appeal by the international coordinators and the founder association, PEA, resulted in massive virtual support this year. More than 200 people created and shared placards and original messages demanding the end of fishing. Here is a selection. Let's get together in 2021 for a WoDEF that is more determined and stronger than ever !
More than 100 actions planned before the crisis...
Before the pandemic, actions were being organised in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States and, for the very first time, in Russia and Switzerland. On-line campaigns were already being set up, as they are each year.
