Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing everyone a safe, warm, and memorable Thanksgiving holiday :-)

Just a few things to share today ...

Check out Larry King today on CNN at 8:00 p.m. EST USA time. Ric O'Barry, of Save Japan Dolphins and The Cove Movie and Ben Stiller, actor, will be discussing the campaign to Save Japan Dolphins.

Speaking of The Cove Movie, it has made the short list of 15 films to be considered for an Oscar nomination! Yeah!

Here's an excerpt from the latest Save Japan Dolphins newsletter:

In September elections, the Japanese voted in a new political party to replace the long-reigning LDP, which had run Japan since the 1940’s.

It is unclear whether the new Japan PM and his party will stop the slaughter of dolphins and whales. They are said to be opposed to government subsidies, which certainly SHOULD put Japan’s whaling scheme on the chopping block! Millions of taxpayer yen are wasted each year on sending the whaling ships to Antarctica for phony “scientific” research whaling, as well as millions more in bribes to small nations in return for their voting for whaling at the International Whaling Commission meetings.

Finally, the new party is very interested in protecting the environment. The threat of mercury poisoning should therefore resonate with them.

Recently, at a press conference, reporter Boyd Harnell confronted the new Minister of Public Health, Mizuho Fukushima, with the dangers of mercury-contaminated dolphin meat. He presented her with copies of some of his pioneer articles for The Japan Times and several scientific reports, including several provided by our Save Japan Dolphins Coalition.

So we feel the time is right for Japan to finally end the slaughter of dolphins and whales, once and for all.

Once the people of Japan learn the truth about the dolphin slaughter through viewing The Cove and getting the scientific and educational information we provide, they will stop the slaughter – I am sure of it.
