We are holding a peaceful protest in New York City, one of many globally, to raise awareness of the brutal daily slaughter & captive trade of migrating Dolphins in Taiji Japan & the Whale Hunt.
The IOC will convene at the Olympics HQ in Switzerland on 3-4th July to receive presentations from all 3 host city bids & then debate which city should host the 2020 Olympics. Under the Environmental Mandate of the Olympic Charter, which governs the IOC, they are required to 'encourage and support a responsible concern for environmental issues' Which means that the IOC & Japanese Olympic Committee are OBLIGATED to address the extremely significant environmental issue of the Whale & Dolphin hunts in Japan, which sees up to 20,000 slaughtered by various methods, throughout Japan, not just in TAIJI
It is OUR job to ensure that they do THEIR job correctly.
We must ensure that the International Olympic Committee is not allowed to ignore the Dolphin Drive & Whale Hunt, which is sanctioned by Japan's Government, when they consider Tokyo's 2020 bid.
Bring whistles, drums, inflatables, banners, flyers etc.. and lets make sure people hear us & understand why we are there, be prepared to had out leaflets & EDUCATE people about what happens in Japan.
Remember that the more props we have with us, the more impact we will make. Banners and posters should be large and clear. They must not incite hatred or a boycott of Japan. We will not allow them to be included in our event, so do not bring them.
Please note NO profanity or negativity towards Japanese citizens. Our event is aimed at the IOC & the people in POWER who have the ability to end the Dolphin & Whale Hunt, but chose not to.!
