Japan Dolphin Day, ALiberation Demo Report

Posted in ALiberation Demo Reports by ALib on the September 17th, 2008

Save the Dolphins Day, Dublin

Respect the Rights of Dolphins, the Rights of other Sea Mammals and the Rights of the Japanese Citizens, the Japanese Government were told on Wednesday 3rd of October at the Embassy of Japan in Dublin.

In short, stop killing the 23,000 Dolphins and other sea mammals in this yearly massacre.
Worldwide, in support of a day of action organized by Save Japan Dolphins, people demanded that the Japanese Authorities listen.

In Dublin, activists protested for two hours. With banners, posters, leaflets and a megaphone, the Irish Public were informed about what the Japanese Government dare not tell the Japanese Public.
And the list of what they dare not say was long: Dolphins massacred, how dophinariums support this massacre, mercury poisoning, suppression of the media, and the incompetence of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (An organization that has a lot to answer for even away from this issue).

For the second hour the rain lashed down, as activists looked on the building that housed Ambassador Urabe and his staff as they received calls and read


emails from people asking that they help stop this mindless abuse now.

Each year more and more people are learning what is happening, each year more and people are demanding an end to this madness, how long can the Japanese Government’s wall of silence protect the Japanese fishermen?
