Taiji, Japan Dolphin Slaughter Campaign

    1. Petition by

      The Common Sense Environmental Fund

Yearly Slaughter of Over 20,000 Dolphins. This was brought to CSEF's attention by the Academy Award Winning film titled "The Cove." The majority of the world and Japanese citizens are not aware of what is happening at this Taiji cove because it is blocked off from the public and film crews are arrested. CSEF's project involves financial assistance for the creation of media and publications aimed at Japanese citizens, the majority of which are unaware of the annual slaughter and the sale of their mercury poisoned meat, along with a letter writing campaign to key international regulatory, political and media officials to bring an end this practice.

      I oppose the senseless slaughter of defenseless creatures for pure epicural delight and wasteful consumption.

      I wonder if these poachers care that the dolphins they are slaughtering are sentient mammals. Meaning that they are self-aware like humans. If they do, they should stop immediately.

      Everyone knows about this annual bloody massacre. When is shame going to take the place of greed and lead you to stop your murderous activities.
