Click the pic to petition Google

no-ivory-buttonPatrick invited me to sign a petition asking Google to stop selling ads that promote the sale of ivory. By enabling marketers to easily display ivory products around the world, Google supports the slaughter of elephants for their tusks.

Not wanting to “pile on” if Google had already amended its behaviour, I checked and saw that Google made a reply back in February, stating that the ivory ads are against Google’s policy and that when such ads are reported, they are removed.

That would be good, except the ads are not being removed and Google isn’t enforcing its policy very rigorously it seems. So I decided to “pile on” and sign the petition. You can, too, if you like.
