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births raging through the US, The Media and the celebrity press, still, embarrassingly continue to celebrate ,the outdated tarnishing old glamour images of animal slavery.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.
