After Japan Dolphins Day 2020 @ Taiji on August 30, 2020, we had a discussion with the right-wing people who came to protest us.
People who used to protest Sea Shepherd (https://youtu.be/D0_phHn2aQM). This is a video of a discussion between those who insist on dolphin hunting protection and us activists who are trying to protect dolphins.
The right side is the internal organs of the pilot whales. It is called “Udemono” (boiled food). The left side is the muscle and cartilage in the gap between the bones of the pilot whales. It is called “Honehagi” (bone stripping). Dolphins and whales that lived freely in nature look like this.
Dolphins, whales, and all animals have the right to enjoy their own lives. Freedom for dolphins. Let’s release the animals.
※The term “Gondo whale” here is one of the four species to be captured: Melon-headed whale, Risso’s dolphin, Short-finned pilot whale, and False killer whale.
Today, I will head to Taiji. From now until July of next year, I will be active while moving around Taiji-cho, Tokyo, islands, Iwate and other parts of Japan.
Japan is the most dangerous place for dolphins in the world. Dolphins are at increased risk of being captured and killed as they approach Japan. I want to make Japan a country that loves dolphins.
There is patriotism in favor of dolphin hunting and aquariums, violence and exploitation of dolphins, but I think that is not the case. I believe that sharing and living this beautiful Japanese nature with dolphins and animals is a true patriot who embodies local love.
I hope everyone will learn more about dolphins and Japan. The change of one person changes the reality. We are the only ones who can save dolphins.
I think the number of broadcasts will increase for a while. I will also share information about dolphins and the dolphin industry. I think it will be useful, so please have a look.
