Hunt in Taiji: Day 1

Today was the starting point of a hunt for over 2,000 dolphins inside the infamous 'Cove' located in Taiji, Japan. Every year dolphins go through natural migration routes from September to March.. but what they do not know is that they are unwittingly swimming straight into the open arms of evil and death. This hunt takes place every year, with no mercy from the fishermen. 
While this is the day that a horrible tragedy will start, as it does every year, this is also a day for celebration. This is the day that thousands of ocean lovers, and AR (Animal Rights) Activists stand together and fight. Fight for those who can't fight for themselves. A wave of change will crash upon the shores of animal rights, protection, and liberation. A flood of mercy from humans will rush over the ocean (Think about that one:P) and all will be peaceful.. this is a dream that every activist dreams for their entire lives. This dream will soon become a reality because we will not stop until this hunt is over. We will not stop until those who have punished the oceans for a crime that has not been committed are brought to justice. We are Neptune's Navy and We are NEVER going to back down from this war.

Ric O'Barry and his team are already in Taiji to oppose the slaughter. (SaveJapanDolphins.org)
