The Cove-dolphin friendly cinema
Some of you might be aware of a film called ‘The Cove’.
The film primarily deals with the killing of dolphins for food & the lengths that this particular area in Japan, the town of Taiji, goes to in order to minimize the bad publicity that this practice has attracted.
What I learned today is that Broome in WA is the sister city to town of Taiji in Japan where ‘The Cove’ is filmed. Within one week of intense activism by animal rights groups here in Australia, the city of Broome has severed all ties with its sister city in Japan due to its ongoing massacre of dolphins. What an inspiring demonstration of people power.
When will these pseudo cultural practices be judged by the world what they really are, out of step, ignorant & shamefully inhumane? To borrow a phrase from our Labor Parties golden years; ‘It’s time’.
Time to send a message to all those Governmental head in the sand, flat-earthers out there: Find another fish to kill & eat & leave the Dolphins alone.
