Report from Taiji: May 5 - #seashepherd #taiji #dolphins

We have been asked why we are making noise about whales and dolphins when there is so much human misery in Japan at the moment. I do not see how the two are linked. The misery inflicted on the cetaceans is no less now than it would be if there had not been an earthquake. Are we to stop our efforts to protect them because of an earthquake? The better question to ask is why the Japanese government is allowing this slaughter to happen. Why is the government allowing these two dozen individuals in Taiji to bring shame and dishonor to the entire nation when there is so much misery here already? Almost all other civilized nations have laws protecting marine mammals. Why does Japan cling to the stoneage and bring world condemnation down on itself?
