Anniversary of Death

FROM WASHINGTON CITIZEN'S COASTAL ALLIANCE

One year ago. It's almost hard to believe that at this time one year ago, we all watched in horror as the United States rejoined the pirate whaling nations of the world.

One year ago this morning, Makah whalers slaughtered a juvenile female gray whale in the waters of a federal Marine Sanctuary - she came right up to the whaling canoe, expecting a friendly hand. Instead, she received a cold harpoon and a multitude of blasts from an anti-tank gun.

The fight continues. A year of research and education is under our belts, our resolve is as strong as ever to end this hunt, and with the generosity and efforts of people just like you, we will.

We will prevail. With the truth on our side, the outcome was never in doubt, only the length of time it takes to rid our shores of this evil.
