Another protest against the Taiji Dolphin Hunt

By 20 November 2012 6

Facebook has word of a new protest outside the Japanese Embassy:

Protest rally against inhumane treatment/capture and killing of the dolphins and whales in Taiji

We are 2 Melbourne mums who have been on Twitter, Facebook following Sea Shepherd and Cove Guardians on the Taiji dolphin/whales hunt.

Seeing all the photos and videos being posted on both Twitter and Facebook has upset and enraged us into action. We cannot sit idly by and let this barbaric treatment of the whales and dolphins continue, without voicing our objections to it.

This event is to protest the annual Taiji dolphin cull as seen in the Academy-award winning documentary The Cove. The message is positive: Japan, let the dolphins live & be free!

We will meet outside the Japanese Embassy at 11am [Saturday 24 November].

We invite one and all to come and join us, those in Australia and overseas visitors who are in our country at this time.

Lets make our voices be heard and mark this the day that will encourage all media to Taiji to report live exactly what is happening at The Cove!

Follow us on Twitter @LydiaBloms @IceRhapsody and #Tweet4Taiji
If you have any inflatable dolphins or whales, you are more than welcome to bring them along. You can also make your own banners, but I do suggest nothing graphic as there could be young children present. Thank you

No-one gives a rat’s arse about the blobfish apparently but because dolphins and whales are so pretty, there is a whole army of naive and angry self-righteous idiots to defend them to the bitter. To be fair, I don’t really care about the whales OR blobfish, I just like to point-out how shallow the ideals of most of these ‘eco-warriors’ are.

To be fair, the blobfish doesn’t appear to do a hell of lot, well, except lie on the seafloor looking like, well, a blob.

Personally I can’t see that there is any need to slaughter dolphins or whales at all.

I will just cut and paste exactly what I posted last time

The conservation status of most types of dolphin are listed as ‘least concern’ by The International Union for Conservation of Nature, the worldwide recognized body for conservation listing.

Also in this category are such animals as pigeons, cane toads and eastern grey kangaroos.

Provided it is these types, and not a more endangered type, that is being hunted, then, on the face of it, this seems to be a perfectly sustainable harvest.

I miss the dolphin in my tuna.

I’ll give the consorting with eco-terrorists a miss, thanks.

I wish it was open season on the Japanese; things haven’t been the same since August ’45.
