On Friday, October 16th London was loud and proud when around 800 people aired their grievances outside the Japanese embassy against the dolphins killed and taken for captivity in the drive hunts of Taiji, Japan.
Dolphin Project believes that London holds the key to ending this barbaric practice. “The protesters are the best in the world,” said Ric O’Barry.
It proved this when the Japanese embassy chose to remove its flag from its own building. This has never happened before.
Ric was joined by Dominic Dyer of Born Free and Care for the Wild, Cove Monitor Maria Nangle, and Ollie Blackmore of Ollie’s Cycle Challenges. Blackmore recently completed a gruelling, 3,600 kilometre bicycle ride from one end of Japan to the other, to raise awareness for Japan’s dolphins.
One thing is clear. The Japanese government can no longer choose to be a player on the world stage and then hide from its actions. – dolphinproject.net
