Taiji Mass Murder
6:30 pm Saturday, September 14 - The water has turned bright red from mass slaughter and a small number of remaining whales and dolphins alive and forced to swim in their own family's blood.
After 7 hours, they are atill transferring dead whale bodies from cove to Taiji butcherhouse. While a rwmaining pod of 40-50 pilot whales and dolphins just witnessed their family being murdered and now dragged out of cove. This pod will most likely be held again tonight and slaughtered tomorrow.
Apparently not enough room or time to kill entire pod.
People from everywhere around the world sit and watch in dismay, helpless and frustrated that there is no news, no say and no political sway to help save the plight of the allotted heartless killing of 20,000 dolphins and pilot whales a year in this small spec of a town in Taiji, Japan!!!
The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and usually continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bays and mercilessly stab and drown them to death.
We have to stand back and watch the fisherman of Taiji and the Nationalist party of Japan flex their muscles because of mafia backing and political clout in not only their small town of 3500 but across the Nation and also their connection to the tv media and press.
With shameful spins on the truth behind the well wishers of the Dolphins plight and even offers of yearly salaries to be paid out to the fisherman with alternatives to ways of generating revenue, the resolve is still one of nationalistic pride and ego, the Japanese in control of the fisheries, the whaling commission and the multimillion dollar trade of dolphins to various aquariums around the world, are enough to let the brutal murder of the creatures take place.
