I’D RATHER GO NAKED & FAMOUS THAN WEAR FUR – Every Saturday HARRODS

Banner-explicit-WEB3

I’D RATHER GO NAKED & FAMOUS THAN WEAR FUR – Every Saturday – HARRODS PROTEST AT LONDON’S EXCLUSIVE KNIGHTS BRIDGE RETAIL ESTABLISHMENT.

Despite FUR farming being illegal in Britain, sales figures here in the UK are sky rocketing through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

There has been a History of Anti Fur Protest activity against Harrods from a number of Animal Rights Groups and Organizations. Most recently form 2005 to 2013 Anti Fur protesting at the Elite Store was being driven by Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade. In 2013 despite widespread public unrest, Harrods succeed in securing a court Injunction to effectively silence protest. The Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade is now targeting Harvey Nichols and FUR Retail.

In November 2014 Heidi Mary Porter, committed animal rights activist nudity protester and model, under her deep probing animal rights investigation operation “FBI animals” took up the banner against Harrods policy of stocking Real Fur and started protesting over Fur . Heidi and a growing movement of protesters can be seen outside Harrods Every Saturday  from 2 – 6.

The objective of the protest is to ask HARRODS to review their commitment to stocking FUR products. The protest group have raised concerns specifically around the increasingly cruel cost cutting methods of farming FUR which have been linked by Animal Rights groups to industry practices of skinning alive, anal electrocution, horrific conditions of confinement in cramp quarters filled with excrement , beating, suffocation, gas, and poisoning.

Harrods argument to stocking Fur is based on what is referred to “Ethical Sourcing” and “Public demand”.

Fishinabox, the Anti Fur society, Nettverk for dyrs frihet and Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge have all investigated lines of supply  for European stockists back to “Ethical” Farms and found evidence of gross negligence. In all cases , All fur farms investigated contained the same conditions. Animals keep in dire confinement have resorted to gnawing their own limbs, attacking each other, neglected, eating excrement when not feed, death and disease is unchecked and carcasses are left with living animals:

http://www.fishinaboxrecords.com/ethical-fur-farming-in-europe-expose-focus-on-norway/

It is essential that these investigations are made and shared as publicly as possible. As with failing demand and outrage leading up to the 1990 closure of the Harrods Fur Department,, the strength of the anti-fur campaign was based on concrete evidence of mistreatment.

Why Harrods ? Perhaps the protest group believe that by gaining the support of one one the oldest and most respected stores in London the message will filter down to the retail sector in general over the archaic practice of selling FUR.

Harrods , (according to “wikipedia” is an upmarket department store located on the Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus UbiqueAll Things for All People, Everywhere has proven to be a poison pill when faced with the controversy of FUR. 

Harrods is the only department store in Britain that has continued to sell FUR. (That’s DEPARTMENT Store, not, retail chain – retail is rolling out FUR without limitation) Their elitist example of the “acceptability” of fur and the “class tag” of Harrods goods creates an acceptance in high society of the allure to FUR products which is challenged in this protest.

LAST MONTH: MARCH

The protesters were served by Harrods with, under UK Law, an “all guns blazing” updated 16 page restriction order from the Royal Court of Justice (dated 2013) and have been under pressure from the Store security attempting to impose the conditions of the order.  (The order has, by fault of the Harrods Legal team, not been updated for the current campaign and though it falls under the “expectation”  in section 2 against “Persons Unknown” actually omits the word “unknown”  which could be grounds of contention by FBI Animals , in the event of the being applied for arrest or detention against non CAFT members.

Fashion industry  – Hang your heads in Shame:

Newly shamed in the Fashion Elite for selling “FAUXFUR” but proved to be cat / rabbit / racoon / dog: Aquatalia /Belk/Michael Kors/Jacadi, and Nordstrom Rack

Michael Kors spokesman commented that the material falsely identified as “faux” on the store’s website due to “a clerical error,” (NO SHIT Sherlock ! – Source NBC News today show:

http://qz.com/316783/fashion-companies-just-got-caught-labeling-real-fur-faux-again/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2890312/Your-faux-fur-actually-REAL-stores-like-Nordstrom-Rack-Neiman-Marcus-falsely-labeling-animal-pelt-clothing-fake.html

In the 1980’s  public rejected FUR en mass following a series of campaigns highlighting the techniques used in the processing of Seal Cubs for FUR. It is ironic that this method of processing FUR , so vehemently protested against is more humane than most of the global fur trade farming today. At least the seals were dead ! The Public had an issue with that but don’t have an issue with whats going on today ? it seems unbelievable….

Here are some informative links on the reality of the FUR trade for those of you who like to investigate more:

SKINNED ALIVE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2045016/Raccoon-dogs-skinned-alive-make-cheap-copies-Ugg-boots.html

Back to London for some research: Why is it when you sit on your underground train around London, that so many women are happy to sit in full fur coats made from fox, rabbit, cat, dog imported furs, All evidence clearly shows the animals are treated inhumanly ?……

We took the matter to test, and, over the period of a week FISHINABOX asked 100 women between Highbury Islington and Stratford Station London if they were aware that their Fur coat or trim was real or not and if real, most likely subjected to methods of torture in its production.

Image3

Results: 28 of the women responded aggressively (verbally violent) or passively aggressively (ignored) and declined to answer. Of the remaining 72; 20 responded that they were fully aware;  52 said there trims / coats were most likely fake and were informed about the cases of the Tom Tailor use of cat fur and Canada Goose use of Coyote fur.

When advised that the cost of fake fur (therefore the likelihood that fake fur is actually Cat/Dog Fur) now exceeds the cost of cat/dog FUR, and, that the US FUR market who supplies the globalized west, currently has 60% of all FUR imports coming from China. where the FUR industry is a staple of  Cat/Dog and Rabbit Fur.All women of the remaining 52 questioned were unaware and shocked.

All women were then asked if they owned cats themselves of the 20 Women who were fully aware, 7 owned Cats, of the 52 women questioned 23 owned Cats.

At FISHINABOX we make the sweepingly judgement decision that Women who knowingly and happily wear FUR farmed on an industry of torture are basically just bitches and as a result we reached out to Heidi to support her in her work. As part of this campaign we will be releasing a number of profile Music Anthems targeting issues of Domestic Animal Abuse throughout 2015 with the sole aim of education the Public and reducing the number of people who wear FUR to only leave the Bitches.

So know you have read this article, whilst sitting with Cat on your lap purring and are, from the corner of your eye, looking at the fluffy black “fake fur” coat from Josephs (who market their FUR under the blurb “…has become synonymous with discerning fashion, the finest quality materials and the sleekest designs that fuse minimalist, and understated style with timeless elegance) that you paid £300.00 for and wondering if you want to be seen out in it any more……..”

If you want to check your Trim or jacket to see if its FUR: http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-fashion/how-to-tell-real-fur-from-faux-fur.html

If you have bought FUR without realizing you should return it to the Shop of purchase and request a refund based on mis-sold goods consumer rights known as – Satisfactory As Described: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/consumer-rights-refunds-exchange

Do you ever feel like you’ve been cheated ? Feel you want to do something about it ? Attend the DEMO this Saturday outside HARRODS and ensure that the Fashion Industry hangs it’s head in Shame.

CAPTIVITY KILLS – DOLPHINS OF TAIJI Valentines Campaign

JAPAN SEA STAIN WITH BLOOD2TAIJI COVE VALENTINES FRONT

TAIJI COVE VALENTINES BACK

GO LIVE – VALENTINES TAIJI COVE MAILSHOT ROLL OUT

A massive THANK YOU to our Financial Backers, Anonymous Backers, Investors  and Sponsors who have made this action possible. 90% of the total Valentines Campaign Cost has been kindly donated in support of the action.

The STOP TAIJI movement put out 1408 Valentines day CD Album appeals for support to prominent members in four contact categories:

01  Influential and up and coming UK based Japanese celebrities

02 Japanese Official Foreign Office and Japan Tourism Representatives

03 British Political Movers and shakers

04 Quick Thinking and open minded London based Journalists and Media.

FISHINABOX hopes that by this non aggressive action we will raise awareness and debate over TAIJI Cove within the Japanese Community and British Political Circles. We must remain positive that highlighting the issues around Dolphin slaughter and traffic will bring this  issue to focus. Where people are informed , Public opinion sways against the trade. Support on the ground has increased 10 fold since November Protest simply due to awareness.

This campaign seek to engage support  through positive reinforcement and not alienate the Japanese Community.

IN THE NEWS:

In addition to  latest craze of having Captive Dolphin-assisted births  raging through the US, The Media and the celebrity press, still, embarrassingly continue to celebrate ,the outdated tarnishing old glamour images of animal slavery. Personalities such as David Guetta, Sam Smith, Victoria Beckham, Vin Diesel, Pink, Snooki, Britney Spears, Elton John, one Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, Mischa Barton, Charlie Sheen, Tara Reid, Jessica Alba, Alexandra Burke, and Kim Kardashian have all sadly been photographed in the Celebrity Press hugging and kissing Dolphins. All people concerned over this issue should boycott these celebrities work.

Ethically their actions fuel, either directly or indirectly through association, the PR machines that finance the Dolphin Slaughter and capture industry.

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) clarifies the impact on the Dolphins of these Media Elite photo-hugs: Touch tanks and swim-with programs where the public pet, kiss, or even, in the case of Kim Kardashian, (where petting a Dolphin was not enough for her) to actually ‘ride’ dolphins. Such programs invade the animals’ already diminished worlds and are intrusive, dangerous, and stressful for the Dolphins.

Animals in petting pools can become injured and anxious as a result of constant poking and prodding, there is also  exposure to bacteria that they are not immune to can make them ill. The dolphins also often express their frustration through aggression.

Lyrics for Songs performed on the Interview:

“ARE YOU READY”.

I’ll be getting down like I’m in the system of a
See me get down with the syndrome and your mother
I’ll be coming soon tell your sister tell your brother
Cos they ain’t seen nothing like it cos there ain’t no other
One that can do what I can do, and what you do to me I’ll do to you
I’m Tommy two shits cos mine is always better, you might be a bus but I’m a double decker
Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready
For what you’re about to receive
Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready
For me

You don’t even know what you wanna do
What I wanna be what I see’s right in front of me
When I’m gonna do it know I wanna do it properly
And hell I’ve been through it and I’m saying there’s no stopping me
All I wanna know is can you feel me
Any time you see me better know it is the real me
I need to make this music thing work cos working 9 to 5 well it’s damn near killed me

Going crazy like I’m over the cuckoos nest
Not doing it now but I know I gotta do my best
Long way to the top and I don’t know if I will reach
I haven’t reached my peak yet and no I’m not an idiot
Have a look at me and tell me what you see
Many people think they do but they don’t know me
Show me something that I’ve never seen before and I guarantee that I can show you something more

“THINKING OUT LOUD”

When your legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don’t remember my name
When my hands don’t play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

‘Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it’s evergreen
And, baby, your smile’s forever in my mind and memory
I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it’s all part of a plan
Well, I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you’ll understand

But, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

So, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are
Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are

Japan controls the world Fish markets, it is true there is over demand for fishing and whatever measures, however unpopular, must be taken to preserve fishing stocks. The reduction of Dolphin and Whale population has a significant effect on available fish stocks and ensures the industry is not at this time restricted in meeting public demand for fish.The farming of Dolphin and Whales is for the Public

The Taiji Dolphin Industry is the most lucrative part of Sea Mammal fishing in Japan. Live Dolphins caught through a process od confusing the mammals during migration with sonic attack makes them an easy target for cove based fishermen.

The herded Dolphins, despite the lifelong Trauma caused by sonic attack, are sold for 100,000.00 Dollars a head to the captive animal trade, dolphinariums. Live Animal centers and the like.

A Dolphin in captivity is worth around 3m dollars profit a year in sales revenue.

There are only ever so many places in the cages, and the oversupply of dolphin’s results in a pennies for punches slaughter to mmaximize financial return on the balance of the captured pods and herds where they are killed for the Meat Market.

The Japanese Government are trying to legitimise a practice that almost every country in the world has said no too. The IWC, tasked with managing the whaling issue, are no longer effective and do not classify small citations under the whaling charter.

Japanese Government overseas funding has caressed the political halls of 3rd world and island nations up and down the whaling route where financial investment comes with an invitation to join the IWC and then vote and support the Japanese position on whaling.

There is no hope of balances legislative control of the Whaling issue while matters lie in the hands of the IWC.

Japanese media blackout on Dolphin Hunting is keeping Japanese people in the dark. The Dolphin meat industry over the last 35 years has been kept quiet. Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo is generally unaware that the industry is operating on scale.

There is no active eco/environmental group in Japan able to raise and successfully challenge the Dolphin industry issue. If the slaughter of Dolphin’s is tradition then why the Media Blackout ? I mean there are hardly any sales of Dolphin Meat, who actually eats Dolphin Meat ? Why the Media Blackout ?

Recent health checks and tests on whale meat product sold throughout the Japanese mainland have raised question on the level of Mercury found in tinned meats. Oddly the levels of Mercury are corresponding with the of Dolphin and not Whale Meat. Raising the Question ?

Where does Whale Meat come from ?

2000 Dolphins, this year alone ? Slaughtered ? Where did the Meat go ?

Why the Media Blackout ?

Why the Media Blackout ?

This Dolphin thing is just another “Horsemeat” horror story, one fishing industry feeding the other with it’s cast off’s. Dolphin or Whale meat is all one in the same, a sick cycle, passing off poisoned meat to an ill informed and unsuspecting Public.

I mean WTF, It’s psychotic. It’s like every single living sea mammal is in danger if it swims through Japanese waters ? In Taiji they are trying to promote Dolphin meat as safe and part of the Community by giving it away free, to school, for like lunch meat ! I mean after all the studies on poisoning ? Have they actually seen the effects of Mercury on an unborn foetus, the highest risk of deformities and mental illness ? Is that why the Government are keeping this subject off all channels?

How could any mother let their children eat this shit ? Come on, wake up and recognise this for what it is !

So,. basically Japan have been in and out of court for 4 years since 2010 disputing whaling hunting rights.

They were hunting with this scientific permit and bagging around 450 whales a season,. basically 10,000 whales since the permit was authorized for supposed scientific research. So the World court questioned why the scientific research, after so many whats, was still inconclusive and basically passed a judgement that the permit just a smoke screen for commercial whale hunting.

The ban was passed This year.

Shinzo Abe the Japanese PM on his post ban visit to Australia make a speech that Japan would obey the ban as they were a good international citizen but that they would seek for reinstatement of the permit.

Frankly This is bullshit, Japanese Whaling trawlers are still out there and how can we accept Japan’s statement about being a good international citizen when they still obsessively pursue the reinstatement of scientific permits to feed a national food fetish ? I mean how popular really is Whale Meant, Whale Bacon ?,. Do Japanese people seriously, i mean seriously on mass agree with the mass hunting, to a point of risk, extinction, one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet ? Come on , its just lies upon lies, the same old story,. and we are tired of it,. sick and tired of the killing , sick and tired of the suited and respectable classes failing, society again and again by supporting publicly base, unnecessary and barbaric stone age traditions. its time to wipe the fake smiles and handshakes in and out of the courtroom and political halls and stop with the hunting.

London DEMO JAN172015

Tell Japan to stop killing Dolphins !
Close down the aquariums !
Close down Seaworld !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !
Stand up for the voiceless ones !

….Where animals are brutalized and slaughtered ! Hundreds ! Thousands! Every year !

Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be ! be ! be ! be ! be !

Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free !
Taiji, set them free ! Taiji, let them be !

Stop the slaughter in the water ! Free the Dolphins of Taiji !

So Why are you at the Demo today ?

Do we really want to see Dolphin’s perform mindless tricks over and over again ? Or do we want to see them in the Oceans wild and free ?
and I think the answer that most people would give is that we want them to be wild and free. and the senseless murder of the other Dolphin’s that are not captured for aquariums, they’re captured because in Japan they are still eating Dolphin meat. The Dolphin meat is filled with mercury and they are poisoning their children with the Dolphin meat, it’s being served at school dinners and in Japan they have to eat their school dinners, because that’s the law. They are poisoning their own children, so, that’s why I am here today. I think, we are destroying our planet, we are destroying ourselves. The human race cannot find peace until we make peace with our fellow animals. They feel pain the same as us, we have to stop , it;s a holocaust.

Now Dolphin’s around the world are under pressure like never before. Because of pollution, because of fishing, because of climate change. We’re not certain of what population numbers we can have; we know that they are falling rapidly and that they are highly endangered in many parts of the world yet they have no proper legal protection whatsoever, be it in national countries like Japan, or International agreements such as “CITES” and that is not right. The way that these animals are killed, the way that no one is keeping track of the impact on their numbers is an absolute disgrace. and the fact that the Japanese Government think they can get away with this and that the rest of the world will fall silent is not going to happen anymore.

What I am really pleased about, is that this issue is back on the top of the Media agenda again but its not on the top of the Media agenda because of the newspapers and the television. It’s because of people like you here in the cities around the world and because of the growing power of social media; because your’e putting it on Twitter, your’e putting it on Facebook, your’e getting angry, your forcing Al Jazeera and the BBC to get this back on our television screens to tell us the real horror that is going on in Taiji and the other parts of Japan as well. We know that “The Cove” in 2009 was a great film, we know it deserved and Oscar but it’s now 5 years ago and memories are very short and all of us here must keep this on the global media agenda because this is an absolute disgrace.

Now what happens in Taiji impacts all of us, all of us who care about wildlife, all of us who care about the future and protection of intelligent animals like Dolphins. As I said, over 20,000 of these animals are killed of the Japanese coast every year, nearly 2, to 2 and a half thousand of them are killed in Taiji Cove. Now there are many issues around Taiji. Lot’s of discussion about culture and we saw our friend on the road earlier who said we are all terrorists because we do not understand the need for Japanese people to eat Dolphin meat. Let me tell you something about Dolphin meat, it’s pretty disgusting stuff. No one really wants to eat it. It;s got lots of Mercury in it so it’s pretty unhealthy as well and most of it is passed of as Whale meat in the Japanese market, to get to be a bit more valuable and all most certainly people don’t want to eat Whale meat in Japan either and most of that end’s up as Dog food so that’s what we are really talking about here. All these animals are being killed largely to end up as Dog food. That’s an absolute disgrace.

and the actual killing of these animals; we know over the years that the Japanese have been ashamed. They have tried to hide it from the Public, putting tarpaulin, putting barriers in so that you can’t see what’s really going on. and trying to ensure; they say; that they kill these animals in a humane way. We no longer cut their throats they tell you, we no longer have the sea running red with the blood of these dead animals , no we take them out of the water in a humane way, we put them together then we stick spikes into their spinal cords and that kills them quickly we are told, well it doesn’t ! We know that scientists and veterinary experts will tell you, it takes about 7 minutes to kill a Dolphin like that in excruciating pain. Not only that, they do it in front of the other Dolphin’s that they’re killing too, these animals in such social groups and such intelligence are slaughtered in front of each other.

Now those slaughter methods would not be allowed in any slaughterhouse for a cow anywhere in the world but they are allowed in Japan to kill Dolphins which is an absolute disgrace. The actual value of one of those Dolphins is only about 600 dollars. If that was really all what this was worth it would all be over by now, no culture would keep that going, but there’s another darker side to this business that “Care for the Wild” and other charities have been focusing on and that’s the Marine Park and the Dolphinarium business.

They are buying Dolphins from Taiji. The pretty bottle-nose Dolphins that you may go and see in theme parks if you are stupid and ignorant enough not to think, are worth nearly 300,000 dollars each at the top of the market. Selling one of those Dolphin’s will bring in more money than any fisherman can earn in a year. and that’s what is keeping this whole slaughter going. Its not culture, it’s capitalism, it’s commercial greed in the blood of Dolphin’s and that greed is feeding the Marine Park business around the world.

Now all of us, I hope, have had a chance to see “BlackFish”. What a wonderful piece of work alongside “The Cove”. Brave Directors who have worked hard to produce a film that has really brought home the horror behind the scenes of the commercial glossy PR machines that is Seaworld. Now Seaworld will tell you, we’re not involved in the Taiji hunts and the Taiji drives, yes, but they are taking offspring from animals that are taken from Taiji so they are part of it and if Seaworld are successful then in the developing world and the United Arab Emirates, in Egypt, in South Korea and other places where there is a demand for more Marine Parks, and when they open up they’ve gotta find their Dolphin’s and they will be heading to Taiji Cove or the Solomon Islands or other parts of the world where they will round up these animals in this inhumane and disgusting way.

So all of us have to ask ourselves this question, why is it that these animals don’t have enough protection ? Why is it that we are able to exploit them for greed and put them in concrete jungle around the world ? Why is it in the so called modern civilized world we still want to see “Flipper” doing backdrops when we know that all his parents have been murdered and that he lives an inhumane life that is sending him gradually crazy in the most inhumane conditions in many parts of the world.

It’s no longer acceptable, It’s no longer acceptable that a developed rich country like Japan can get away with this. It’s no longer acceptable that the International community does nothing about it. So there are a number of things that must happen here. “CITES”, The international Framework of United Nations that actually does protect the trade endangered species needs to up-list Dolphins and needs to make sure that you can no longer take them from hunts like Taiji and put them into Marine Parks. That should be happening , there should be an international drive to make that happen. We need to know more about the numbers of Dolphin’s around our coastline and the pressure that they’re under. We know that fisherman are killing them, we know that we are killing them with boats, we know that their numbers are being impacted by pollution and climate change and there is no way that you can justify killing something like 20,000 a year in Japan without anyone taking a blind bit of notice.

I am pleased to see that Caroline Kennedy is the new Japanese Ambassador for the United States and has raised concerns. I am pleased to see that MP’s in the House of Commons are starting to debate and discuss this issue because people like you have raised it with them. I am pleased to see that Congressman Government in the United States are doing the same because people in America are angry, quite rightly angry about this too. But then Governments have got to take some tough decisions. If the Japanese keep slaughtering, they you have to start threatening them with Trade Sanctions, you’ve got to say to the Japanese, if you want to start importing your cars, your electronic products we’re going to put tariffs on them if you keep killing Dolphin’s. Are those Dolphin’s more valuable to you that your Nissan Car Business ? Or your Sony Electronics Business which is worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year ? no it isn’t ! That’s the only message they are going to understand that’s going to shut down this Business.

We’ve also got to have more regulation and control of these so called Marine Parks. The international framework for these organizations is highly abused. The so called International Aquarium Association has the Japanese body within it’s affiliate membership despite the fact they they say they are not in agreement with what goes on in Taiji Cove. We know the Japanese abuse the system at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and that allows them to so called, kill Minke Whales in large numbers in the southern oceans under a loophole for so called scientific research. They dump that Whale-meat into the market. If they weren’t killing Whales in that way, the wouldn’t be passing Dolphin meat off as Whale meat either so we need to shut the loop hole in the International Whaling Commission and we need to stop the Japanese killing those Whales.

That’s quite right why the New Zealand Government and the Australian Government are taking Legal action against the Japanese Government in the Haig, I wish them well with that but at the same time we must have actions to protect Dolphins too, all of us have a responsibility for this. What you are doing here today is fantastic. This is civic society at it’s best. People giving up their time, coming together, designing their own posters, their Facebook sites and telling everyone they know that this is a disgusting mess.

Now the Police are telling us they might get upset if we show one of these gory pictures to a member of the Public, well don’t hold back, keep showing the gory pictures because the Japanese Government have been doing everything they can to keep those gory images away from everyone and its your responsibility, and all of our responsibility to get the truth out there.

You tell people how disgusting this trade is ! You tell them how brutal it is how these animals are slaughtered. You tell them what happens to these Dolphin’s that are taken away and put into Marine Parks. You tell them that it’s disgusting that they go to a Marine Park in Benidorm or Egypt or any part of the word without thinking about the consequences. The more we get that message out there, the more we can put a stop to this brutality. Thank you very much to the Dolphin Taiji Action Group here in the UK. Thank you very much to “Sea Shepard” who have done a fantastic job. Thank you to the brave people who are in Japan taking pictures, going down, despite the imitation, bullying and threats they take and please give your support to Charities like “Care for the Wild” because what we are doing to right tourism campaign is putting pressure on the International tourism business who act through the Travel Agency businesses to say that it’s no longer acceptable to be sending your tourists, your people to these Marine Parks. We are having that discussion with the airlines, with Virgin Holidays and other Businesses but we need your support.

The more support we can have, the more impact we can have. So we’ll get back on that street, we’ll make some bloody noise and we’ll male sure everyone’s going to listen to us. This disgusting slaughter will stop but it will stop because we’ll shame Japan, and we’ll shame the international community to stop it for good and this world will be a better place without it. Thank you very much.

Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
Taiji, let them be !
