Worldwide Demo for Taiji Dolphins - Japan Dolphins Day 2013

Yearly protest to save migrating Dolphins from the horrible massacre known as the TAIJI DRIVE HUNT that occurs every year in Taiji Japan starting Sept 1 and runs through Feb (6 months). We need to call attention to the plight of the dolphins by holding this very visual protest. Handouts will be available as well as posters/signs too. Please feel free to make your own personalized posters. The more the merrier. Please come out and show your support. Last year we had more than 90 protesters attend. It was awesome!!! Thank You!


We will begin staging the protest at Skyline Park # 3 (on east side of 17th at Arapahoe, near the huge Chase Bank building) at
11:15 to pick up posters and assign leaflet people.

We will take the group picture at that time. Once we have finished staging and photo session, we will walk, in unison, over to the Japanese Consulate, one block away! So try to get there by 11:15 so you can be included in the group
photo! If you can’t get there by then, we’ll see you over at the Consulate!

Remember, meter parking is 4 quarters for an hour, so bring change! Some   parking there is 2 hour and some is 3 hour. Make sure you read meter to make   sure you are at the right kind of meter for your day! I once fed 3 hours of
money into 2 hour meter. DUH!      

If you can carpool, that would be best solution. There are parking garages very   close to event site, but a little pricey, they are mostly there on Lawrence!

Also, if you can bring a camera for photos to be included on our web page, that would be super!

See you there on Friday, Aug 30.

    Clarification: it is located at Union and Cache La Poudre and is called the Pet Stop Shop. I would be interested in first meeting with the owner and educating them. Anyone interested in this first step?

      Hi Rebekah, it would be a good idea for you to send an email to the list so other members will receive it. Posting on here only goes to the folks who RSVPd to this event. You will have better luck finding someone to take the first step with you from the email list. Thank you so much! Here is the address: [masked]

    Different Subject (breeding pets for sale): Is anyone aware of the new independent pet store on Union? I think it's at the corner of Uintah?

      Hi Rebekah, this is sad news. Would you be interested in hosting a demonstration at the location? If so, send me a personal email about what message you would like to send and I will help get leaflets and posters. I live over an hour away so I can't promise I can attend, but I will do my best depending on the date and time. Thank you!

    Thank you all so much for coming out for the dolphins. It was an awesome protest with a great group of people who cared enough about animals, including the dolphins and whales, to come out on a very hot day and stand there for two hours in the intense heat. Now...that is dedication. It was thrilling to have special guest, Louis Psihoyas, the director of the Cove, with Candace Crispi, both from OPS, who attended the protest. Colorado Springs activists were very welcome sight! Thanks, all you great Animal warriors! I would also like to thank special helpers, Beate Dietrich, Megan Franke, Alex Rice, Shannon Murphy, Olivier Fox Renard; photographer, Kimito Sakata, and of course, as always, Ann and Peter S. for their continuing graphics support and AAN, Vegan Life and The Mercury Cafe' as well.

    BTW: There is another dolphin protest set for Friday, Sept 13th, same time, same place. "RETURN TO TAIJI, A JAPAN DOLPHINS PROTEST #2. Be There!! Peace and Light! Heather
