The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers
The Cove exposes the slaughter of more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises off the coast of Japan every year, and how their meat,
containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan and
other parts of Asia, often labeled as whale meat. The majority of the
world is not aware this is happening. The focus of the Social Action
Campaign for The Cove is to create worldwide awareness of this annual
practice as well as the dangers of eating seafood contaminated with
mercury and to pressure those in power to put an end to the slaughter.
And it’s been working. The film has been making waves since it premiered last year. Critical praise and audience awards worldwide have
focused international attention on Taiji and the annual dolphin drives
off the coast of Japan. Under intense pressure, Taiji called for a
temporary ban on killing bottlenose dolphins. The film, which was
originally rejected, was shown at the Tokyo Film Festival due to public
outcry. Residents in Taiji are being tested for mercury poisoning, and
for the first time Japanese media are covering the issue.
Close to a million people have signed on to the campaign, but this is just the beginning. The fisherman are clearly rattled, but haven’t stopped killing dolphins.
TakePart now to help shut down the cove for good."
