We all know by now (don’t you?) that there are so many action groups and campaigners – utterly distraught by the annual September to March killing of hundreds of Dolphins in Taiji Cove, Japan! The country states it’s an ancient tradition.. where Dolphin pods are ushered in from the sea int the Cove by boats..then people descend into the cove ..and start massacring the dolphins.. a sort of coming of age tradition for their people or something.
BUT reality is different! Many discrete Journalists and activists have witnessed local zoo and park people monitoring from the shores.. later selecting suitable Dolphins for their respective water parks.. and rest are killed.
So here is the second annual big demonstration in Central London – outside the Japanese Embassy – to make our hard feelings known..and to urge them to top this barbaric `tradition’.
The organisers of this event have set up an event page in facebook.. with following details:
“Another event outside the Embassy of Japan in Piccadilly, London to protest the slaughter and capture of dolphins and small whales in Taiji, Japan. Remember to bring along posters and banners 🙂 megaphones, whistles and inflatables! 🙂 date is confirmed to be 21st February! Starting at 12 and finishing with a minutes silence and candles being lit around 6pm.” Facebook event page
