Stop the Killing!


I just came back from the protest against dolphin slaughter in Japan. The protest took place in the Japanese Consulate in Miami, FL and in many other countries. I’m so happy that they were more people protesting of what I expected to see but we still need more support. People need to know about this matter and we need to take care of it.

A world-wide peaceful and lawful protest of the annual dolphin slaughter in Japan, as depicted in the Academy Awardwinning documentary The Cove and the Animal Planet series Blood Dolphins.  The Japanese government issues 23,000 permits annually to coastal communities to kill dolphins of several species.  A few are sold, at great profit, to aquariums and swim-with-dolphins programs around the world.  The captive dolphin industry subsidizes the slaughter.  The majority of the pod are then slaughtered for meat.  But the meat is contaminated with huge amounts of mercury and other pollutants, exceeding the Japanese government’s own health limits.  This is a human rights issue as much as an animal welfare issue.

Please watch the film and get involved: THE COVE

Here are some images of today’s protest (I’m sorry about the quality, I need a camera. My cellphone is not that good)
