“You’re either an activist or an inactivist” -Ric O’Barry
Did you watch the Oscar-winning documentary “The Cove” (if you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? It’s on Netflix Instant Watch!) and immediately think, “If only I could do something, RIGHT NOW, to make this stop…”? Turns out you can. Right now. Well, not right now, but tomorrow, which is close enough. On Thursday, October 14, animal activists as well as concerned and curious citizens (many of whom, I’d imagine, have never attended a protest before) will be showing up at Japanese consulates around the globe to protest the atrocious slaughter of one of the world’s most brilliant, communicative beings: the dolphin.
I just finished watching “The Cove” for the third time, and am completely amped to attend the Los Angeles protest tomorrow. Information for that event can be found here:
If you aren’t Los Angeles based but would like to attend a similar event, most information (or at least whom to contact for more information) can be found here:
Please, show up with your body, your face, and your voice for this crucial show of support. It absolutely WILL NOT STOP unless we are there to stop it. Being an active part of a humanitarian compassionate movement is an incredible, inspirational experience that you have to experience to understand.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
Will I see you there?
