JAPAN DOLPHIN DAY 2010
Rally to STOP THE DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER
Thursday, October 14, 2010
While building security and the NYPD looked on, up to 80 activists, armed with colorful posters, marched in front of the Japanese Consulate in NYC on Japan Dolphin Day, October 14, 2010. A letter signed by various organizations was delivered to the Consulate General's office asking for the cessation of all dolphin drive fisheries, and advising of high levels of mercury and methyl-mercury in dolphin meat.
Japan Dolphin Day marchers persevered through an increasingly heavy rain during the last hour of the protest. Even passers-by were moved enough to pick up signs and join the marchers, while hundreds of flyers were given out. Marchers echoed the calls of various skilled chant-masters, who kept up an impressive noise. Coverage of the event included reporters from Agence France and the CUNY newspaper.
