Unfortunately due to family concerns I was unable to attend the London Taiji Action Day on 21st February as planned but I am pleased to say that around 1000 people attended which is brilliant. The protestors were also allowed to stand right oustide the Embassy as there is scaffolding outside.
Was it the capture of Angel that motivated more people to attend? https://rosedixon.net/2014/01/19/albino-dolphin-in-taiji-whale-museum-taiji-terror-tales-january-2014/
This is the banner that my friend Oephebia Animal Healer who attended made for Angel
She is founder of a group who help the dolphins on a spiritual level https://www.facebook.com/mermaidsforcetaceans?ref=stream

Well done to Karen and Beka Stevens for organising this.
There is another page set up to plan next year’s February event.https://www.facebook.com/events/735050293195681/?ref=22
If the drive hunting has finally stopped by then then it will be a celebratory street party. Oh how I hope that is so… This will be organized by Beka Stevens and Dan Green who works at https://www.facebook.com/EarthraceUK?ref=br_rs
Here is the placard that he brought to the event alast August 2013. This powerful image brought tears to our eyes. The crosses represent cetaceans that have died in captivity. There were 5500 and these were the KNOWN ones. The ones with blue on are babies. So sad. Very powerful image.
The protests will go on for the dolphins until the Taiji drive hunt is no more.
