      Dear Animal  Lover,

      Below is the latest update from Ric  O'Barry, Marine Mammal Specialist,
      about the Japan Dolphin Day  demonstrations at Japanese embassies
      around the world on October 8 at  noon local time. Here is a summary
      of the event from previous e-mails so  you are completely informed on
      this important  event.

      I am participating in the San Francisco  embassy demo at Noon on
      October 8. The dolphins and whales have  communicated that this
      event is pivotal in raising humanity's  consciousness and will have a
      positive impact on millions of people to end all slaughter.

      Those who cannot be at the  Japanese embassy demonstration in-person
      are asked to hold vigil with  prayer and meditation on October 8 at Noon
      your local time for the enlightenment of all  connected to the dolphin
      slaughter. The waves of positive energy from  this united intention hour
      after hour may have unpredicted benefits for  many beings.

      Here is a suggested prayer, chant, song for  you and friends to unite
      with. It came to me from uniting with the  dolphins near Japan and all
      over the world:

      From the heart of the Dolphin Mind,  may we be united and in peace.

      From the heart of the Dolphin Mind,  may we all be enlightened and live
      in harmony  together.

      From the heart of the Oceanic  Mother, may all beings, all species,
      all life honor and support each  other in peace.

      From the heart of Mother Earth, may  we awaken to our highest fulfillment in
      love with all  beings.

      From the heart of Dolphin, Whale,  Ocean, Earth and the deepest heart of our
      own life, may we live as  One.

      Japan Dolphin  Day, October  8th, 2005: Protest the Slaughter

      WHAT: An international day  of protest has been organized to urge the
      Japanese authorities to ban  the slaughter of dolphins.

      WHEN: October 8th, 2005 Noon local  time (wherever you are)

      WHERE: Worldwide

      WHY: Every year,  fishermen in Japan hunt and kill about  20,000 dolphins and
      other whales in the most brutal way imaginable. This  is the largest massacre
      of dolphins anywhere in the world. The fishermen  say they kill the dolphins
      primarily as a form of "pest control." They  say the dolphins eat too many
      fish, and that they are simply eradicating  the competition. We need to let them
      know that these crimes against  nature are unacceptable to the rest of the
      world. Help us send a  powerful message to the Japanese dolphin hunters
      and their government:  STOP THE DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER.

      OUR GOAL: Our goal is to make this  the biggest global protest against the
      dolphin slaughter in history. 

      WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Everyone! This event is not limited to  animal
      protection organizations. NGOs, schools, music bands, various  clubs, businesses and
      concerned citizens are encouraged to show up.  Please
      contact your friends and neighbors, local schools, civic clubs  and anyone
      else you can think of. Ask people to join us at noon on  October 8th at a
      Japanese embassy or consulate office near  you.

      HOW: It's simple. Click on the link below. It will take you  to a list of
      Japanese embassies around the world. Choose one and let  them
      know how you feel about the dolphin murder/genocide:

      www.embassyworld.com/embassy/Japan/Japan1.html

      Addresses of US embassies and  consulate offices can be found here:

      www.us.emb-japan.go.jp/jicc/consulat.htm

      OR: Take a look at the list  below. Is a protest being organized in a city
      you can travel to? If so,  join them. We need TENS OF THOUSANDS of
      non-violent, peaceful protesters  in front of Japanese embassies around
      the world on October 8th. 

      Please read the update from Ric  O'Barry below. Thank you for caring about
      the dolphins and us all.

      Subject:  Japan Dolphin Day: A Moment  of Truth

      Japan Dolphin Day:  A  moment of truth for Japanese dolphin  lovers

      By Ric O'Barry, One  Voice-France

      Every year from September through April with approval of the US and Japan
      governments --many Japanese fishermen ---in selected hidden villages -- eradicate about
      20,000 dolphins and other whales in the most brutal way
      imaginable. This is the largest deliberate massacre of dolphins anywhere
      in the world. The fishermen have said they kill our dolphin sister/brothers
      primarily as a form of "pest control." They say dolphins eat too many fish
      and business needs to eradicate the competition. 

      If the fishermen didn't  get a permit from Tokyo, they would have to stop the
      killings immediately. The fisherman told us they would then switch  to
      fishing for lobster or something similar. One of the younger  fishermen in Taiji
      said the younger generation of fishermen don't really want to murder dolphins
      any longer. It's only the older guys who want to continue the  practice.

      We need to let the Japanese  authorities know that these cruel and inhumane
      dolphin massacres are  unacceptable to the rest of the world. Therefore, our
      coalition has  initiated a world-wide protest to send a powerful message to the 
      Japanese government: STOP THE DOLPHIN  SLAUGHTER.

      The Japanese government and  the fishermen say dolphin hunting is part of
      Japanese culture. In  reality, however, the majority of the Japanese population
      doesn't know  the dolphin slaughter exists. If they knew, they would help us
      stop  it. Our team has traveled to Japanese fishing  villages several times to
      document and expose the dolphin massacres to the Japanese people, and
      the fishermen have done all they can to hide  their bloody work from our
      cameras. They don't want the Japanese people  to know the truth. "It's none
      of their business," are their exact words. 

      Our Japanese colleagues tell  us that pressure on the government from
      concerned citizens can stop the  dolphin slaughter. We believe this to be a
      good strategy -- and a  peaceful one, too. So why not give the Japanese
      decision-makers some serious media pressure from outside and inside
      of  Japan? The goal is to make  this the biggest global protest against the
      annual dolphin  slaughter in history, and we hope that everyone who is
      opposed to  the dolphin slaughter will show up for a peaceful demonstration
      on  October 8th. This includes people in Japan. We need  your  help in making
      the international day of protest  successful. It's time for all of the Japanese
      people who respect nature  to stand up and take action. There are many
      groups in  Japan who say that they "love dolphins and want to protect them."
      THIS IS THEIR MOMENT OF  TRUTH.

      NOW is the time to abolish  this cruel practice once and for all. If not now,
      then  WHEN?

      Please note  that this will be an all-inclusive event. In other words, the 
      protests will not take place under the umbrella of any one group.

      To pull this off, we need  TENS OF THOUSANDS of non-violent, peaceful
      protesters in front of  Japanese embassies around the world. We also
      need tens of thousands of  Japanese people to take a stand on this
      urgent issue. We suggest that Japanese NGOs get organized and hold
      their own protests in the locations  where you will be heard by the Nippon
      media and, ultimately, the bankers who run the economy.

      The event is not limited to  animal protection groups, and we would like to
      add some Japanese schools  and civic groups to the list. Japanese children
      should be educated about  this issue and be given the opportunity to participate
      in the global  effort to stop the dolphin slaughter. What a great learning 
      experience for a child that would be, especially if they actually won as  a
      result of their efforts. The Japanese government and dolphin  hunters expect
      environmental/animal protection groups to protest the  dolphin slaughter. They
      don't, however, expect regular people  to speak out. They especially don't expect
      Japanese people to  protest. This is why we are asking you to please contact 
      your friends and neighbors, local schools and civic clubs. Ask them to  take a
      stand on this urgent issue. Show up to protest the dolphin  slaughter at 12
      noon on October  8th.

      More on Richard O'Barry: In  the 1960s, O'Barry captured and trained
      dolphins, including the five  dolphins who played the role of Flipper in the TV
      series. When Cathy,  the dolphin who played Flipper most of the time, died in
      his arms, O'Barry realized that capturing dolphins and training them to perform 
      silly tricks is simply wrong. He founded the Dolphin Project, dedicated  to
      freeing captive dolphins who were viable candidates and educating  people
      throughout the world to the plight of dolphins in captivity. He  launched a
      searing campaign against the billion dollar dolphincaptivity  industry, telling
      the public what was really going on at dolphin shows.  Today, O'Barry is the
      Marime Mammal Specialist for One Voice, a leading  French animal protection group. To
      recognize his contribution, in 1991 O'Barry received the
      'Environmental Achievement Award' presented by the Committee for the
      United Nations Environmental Program (US/UNEP). His  books include
      'Behind the Dolphin Smile' and ''To Free A Dolphin'.
