Online and Attendance Rallies Against Taiji Dolphin and Whale Hunts 23rd -24th Nov 2012

https://www.facebook.com/events/377179022363957/

This is a massive weekend for the dolphins and whales of Taiji Cove. Lots of people will use their voices on behalf of the cetaceans to protest against the barbaric drive hunts, capture for human entertainment and the inhumane slaughter for meat. There is likely to be press coverage and a lot of commentary on the day.

I am going to the protest outside the Japanese Embassy in London on Friday so I will tell you how it goes. The Embassy is closed on Saturdays (the hunters do not go out either on Saturdays in Taiji although they did last weekend as their hunting success rate has decreased) hence the event taking place on the Friday. However, if you are in the vicinty, people will be present to hand out leaflets and talk to you on the Saturday.

Here are a list of rallies that are taking place worldwide :

Organisers are requesting that you let them know if you are planning to attend as it will help them to get an idea of the numbers. But even if it is a last minute decision, I would turn up anyway as everyone would be so welcome.

I wish to acknowledge the courage of the Japanese organisers and participants who will be at the  Tokyo rally On Saturday. When I have spoken to the Agricultural section of the Japanese London Embassy, I was told that it is only us in the West who are against the hunts as we humanise the dolphins due to their smiley faces. These people from within their own country who are anti hunt are proving otherwise. There is going to be a counter-demonstration by a pro-whaling nationalists group as well. The organizer of the anti hunt have had to advise his group “Please make sure do NOT be provoked by their rude behaviour” It will be interesting to see what happens as the pro-whaling nationalists will try to provoke and intimidate the opposition as it would suit the country’s political purposes (nearly wrote porpoises. Yes they need our help too as they are also hunted in the same way)

Just to remind you all what this is about :

Above is a family of pilot whales that were driven into the Cove at high speed yesterday. You can see that they have been netted in and were brutally slaughtered not long after. Tarpaulin is then placed over the area as the hunters do not want the world to know what they are doing. The photo is courtesy of Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians who are always there to witness so that we can be a voice for the voiceless innocents. One brave whale saw his family being butchered and tried to escape. He fought his way out of the tarpaulin twice but he could not get away due to the nets. We must fight for them and we must win.

Early this morning (22/11/12) 9-10 Rissos were driven into the Cove and slaughtered including this enquiring little faced one. Photo courtesy of Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians. They cannot intervene by law.
