International Day for Japanese Dolphin Slaughter - Oct 8th
- 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.
