A Star Is Overdue As A Cove Guardian In Taiji, Japan

    1. Holise E Cleveland III
    2. Petition by

      Holise E Cleveland III

      Spring Hill, United States

A big name movie star, sports star or music star would bring the much needed publicity to the Dolphin Holocaust that exists today in Taiji, Japan. The barbaric hunters would be foolish to conduct their hunts amidst the media presence that would be attracted by a well known celebrity.

The horrific slaughters depicted in the Acadamy Award winning film 'The Cove' are still happening. More than 800 sentient beings have had their lives snuffed out since early September of 2010; some of them have even been held underwater and drowned. After witnessing their families murdered, others have been hauled off to a life of slavery in Marine Theme Parks to do tricks for food.

The Cove Guardians have been at The Cove since the season started. They have filmed, photographed and documented the atrocities on a daily basis. The dolphins need a Star to be a Cove Guardian! They need one yesterday. They need one last week. They need one Three Months Ago! But I am sure that the dolphins will settle for RIGHT NOW!

There are many stars that are aware of the mass murders, but they have not been in Taiji for even one day since September 2010.

Please sign this petition today! Pass it on asking others to share. Tweet it, email it, blog about it, chat about it and post it everywhere you can. Thank you, for the dolphins.

UPDATE: The 2010/11 hunting season is over. The new season shall resume September 2011. We must have a star at The Cove for the opening of the season!

      We still don't have a big-time star at The Cove. Why? They go to Japan all the time, but why can't they sacrifice a couple of weeks of their lives to become Cove Guardians and help stop the continuous slaughters? Share and share this petition. Let's make our voices heard!

      Please, if you have many contacts, share this petition often. The signing process has come to a halt. We must make this petition viral if it is to be effective. If we can get a star to The Cove before the end of the hunting season (March 31) then maybe there will not be another season.

      Please share daily, asking others to share as well. Thank you so much for your participation.
