Yukari Sugisaka - Japan
My name is Yukari Sugisaka. I live in Japan.
I was just an animal lover till I knew about the reality that animals are suffering for animal-testing, fur, food, etc in 1998.
I could not believe what human are doing to the animals when I saw the photos.
For me it can't be justified for whatever reasons, even if it is executed in the name of "for saving human lives".
Sin is sin.
It is not justice if we cause some other living things suffering.
I became vegetarian soon after when I knew about what was happening behind the scenes of the slaughterhouse, and I am now vegan.
I launched my web site "Help Animals" and started transmitting the information about the animals suffering.
I became one of the starting members with my friends and launched "Stop Animal Test! Campaign" and held the demo against animal testing in 2002.
After that, Stop Animal Test campaign hold the demo against animal testing in Tokyo and now in Osaka.
I visited Farm Sanctuary in Los Angeles and also visited Animal Rights 2007 in L.A. and was happy to be able to see a lots of people who devote their body and soul to the animals.
I would like to be the part of the change for better world for animals.
In Japan, 20,000 dolphins are being slaughtered in inhumane ways for food and many Japanese even do not know about it.
We need your support to stop it. Please come to see my web site. Thank you very much.
