According to the filmmakers behind “The Cove,” Japan fishermen kill tens of thousands of dolphins every year. As animal rights activist Ric O’Barry visited the town of Tajii, Japan, where the harvesting occurs, and attempted to film the slaughter, local police met him with intimidating questions. “The Cove” met critical acclaim in the West, earning among many prizes the 2010 Academy Award in the best documentary feature category. It also infuriated Japanese nationalists so much that the country’s news editors avoided discussing the controversy.
An Air Force colonel banned screenings of the film at Yokoto Air Base, near Tokyo, saying that showing it would amount to an endorsement.

Subject: Sign the petition! Taiji Mayor Kazutaka Sangen & Japanese Government: Petition: Stop the Slaughter & Captivity
I signed a petition on Action Network telling Taiji Mayor Kazutaka Sangen & Japanese Government to Petition: Stop the Slaughter & Captivity.
Dolphins are being slaughtered in Japan, separated from their families and shipped to captive facilities around the world. When you sign this petition, you are pledging NOT to ever buy a ticket to a captive dolphin show; you are telling the Mayor of Taiji and the Japanese government that the slaughters and trade in live dolphins is unacceptable; you are demanding the release of the albino dolphin Angel, and refuting the idea that the Taiji dolphin hunts are traditional, as this has been proven false. Earth Island’s Save Japan Dolphins campaign will be presenting these petitions to representatives to the Japanese government at future events. Help us spread the word, sign and share.
