      International Day of Protest to Stop Japanese Dolphin Slaughter

      Every year from October through March in small towns along the Japanese
      coast, fishermen engage in the largest massacre of dolphins anywhere in the
      world, killing about 20,000 marine mammals in the most brutal ways
      imaginable. Most of them are butchered for meat that is sold in restaurants
      and supermarkets, while some are sold to marine parks.

      This annual slaughter continues because those who profit from selling
      dolphin meat the deliberately hide their bloody actions from the Japanese
      people. That is why OneVoice and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society are
      organizing an international day of protest to inform the public and put
      pressure on the Japanese Government to stop the killing.



      Please join IDA and the Earth Island Institute as we co-host a demonstration
      at the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco to coincide with protests taking
      place around the world.

      What: International Day of Protest Against Japanese Dolphin Slaughter
      When: Saturday, October 8th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.
      Where: Japanese Consulate, 50 Fremont Street (between Market and Mission
      Streets), San Francisco (click here <http://tinyurl.com/dy29d> for
      directions)

      To RSVP or for more information, contact Karen Steele at (415) 388 9641,
      ext. 217 or karen@....
