Right-wing extemists are preventing the famous movie the "Cove", which is about a cruel Japanese dolphin slaughter, from playing in Japan.. how sad.

I agree, it’s absolutely terrible.

I have been following the updates Sea Shepherd have been posting on Facebook.

The recent events have been very heart wrenching. Just over 10 pilot whales have been captured and are waiting for slaughter.

The worst part is, most Japanese are oblivious to what is going on due to the control of the media.

I feel very helpless from where I sit, but I guess the least we can do is spread the news and create awareness on our side.

How sad and how stupid. But we should have known... In Japan like in Europe or in USA (I suppose) money is the "God" of our society and in its name countless horror are made.

This the clear proof (if needed) that the major part of the japanese people do not know about those murders.
Human thinks they're the Earth's owners, it's wrong, we're the Earth property.
