MORE INFORMATION:

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 brutal slaughter of dolphins.

WHEN: October 8th, 2005

WHERE: Worldwide

WHY: Every year from September through April, 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 and consulates around the world: http://www.mofa.go.jp/about/emb_cons/mofaserv.html
