Broome Severs Ties with Dolphin-Killing Capital of the World!

Broome Severs Ties with Dolphin-Killing Capital of the World!

This just in! After receiving thousands and thousands of emails from outraged Animals Australia and Unleashed members, Broome Shire Council held an emergency meeting where they agreed to suspend their sister-city ties with the Japanese town of Taiji, where next month thousands of dolphins will be brutally butchered as part of an unspeakably cruel mass annual dolphin slaughter.

During the slaughter, which every year kills 23,000 dolphins, authorities erect barricades and prohibit photography and videotaping of the brutal event. Not even the Japanese public are aware of the scale or cruelty that goes on in Taiji, or that dolphin meat is often mislabelled and consumed by unknowing Japanese citizens!

This move by Broome sends a strong message to Japan that the international community will not tolerate this dark, bloody secret. With more pressure, we hope that the Japanese government will soon wake up and realise that along with the dolphins, Japan's reputation and appeal as a tourist destination is being bludgeoned to death by callous Japanese fishermen!

Thanks to everyone who took action recently by writing Broome and asking them to sever ties with Taiji! Please also take a moment to write to the Ambassador of Japan to Australia and express your disgust at Japan's annual mass slaughter of dolphins. Let them know that you will not consider visiting Japan whilst this gruesome slaughter continues!

this is what I sent to the Japanese Government. kathy
You people are disgusting in the way at which you show such cruelty toward the dolphins.  They are a lovely creature and the world loves them.  To do what you do is barbaric and shows the western world that Japan is not part of the civilized world.  My son recently considered going to Japan to help teach English, and have a year or so in your country to enjoy the culture.  Under these conditions, he will certainly NOT be coming now.  Japan is NOT as good as we thought.  We are appalled.  Because of this disgusting behavior, I have imposed my own private ban on buying anything made or imported from your country, and I will ask my family and friends to follow me on this ban.  This will remain in place until you see the error of your ways, and stop this absolutely outrageous slaughter.
Yours Truly
