International Day of Protest against Japanese dolphin slaughter

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Tuesday, November 4, 2003 - Noon (12pm) your local time

At the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your city.

On October 6th, crewmembers of Sea Shepherd's Taiji Dolphin Campaign
filmed and photographed fishermen on a
"dolphin roundup" in the village of Taiji, Japan.
Sea Shepherd crew were attacked, intimidated
and their lives threatened.

The world was stunned by the imagery when
our story hit international front pages.

Now you must do your part and send a message
to the Japanese Government to
STOP these "dolphin roundups"!

Join Sea Shepherd and others outraged by this brutal dolphin kill.
In cities around the world, protests will be held on November 4th at noon (12pm)
