On 22 February 2013 there will be an International Taiji Action Day for Dolphins and many cities all over the world will be hosting peaceful protests outside Japanese Embassies.
Those of us who do not live near a Japanese Embassy are participating in an online protest. While it’s not quite February 22 here where I live, I know its already February 22 and mid morning in Taiji already so why not get this online protest started!
The Taiji Action Day for Dolphins 2013 Online Protest on Facebook provided all the information needed to participate in the protest. And simple enough it was, download the four posters provided (or create your own) take a photo of yourself holding the poster and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to February 28. They will forward the messages to Japan and the Fisherman’s Union and the Olympic Committee so that they hear our voices LOUD and CLEAR!
In addition to this I will also be forwarding my message to the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa Canada: H.E. The Ambassador, Mr. Kaoru Ishikawa, Embassy of Japan in Canada, 255 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 9E6, Canada Tel: 613-241-8541, Fax: 613-241-7415, Email: email@example.com
I also suggest taking a minute to sign the following petition: Challenge Japan to End Taiji Dolphin Hunt for Tokyo 2020 Olympic Bid
When I initially heard about the online protest I knew instantly that I would be participating and then I was thought how I could manage to get more people involved and create a greater awareness of this great cause? I decided to mention it to my co-workers and pleasantly surprised when all of them did not even hesitate at the chance to participate as well. So in the end I was an initial voice for the dolphins and managed to bring along 9 of my friends who are also my co-workers! A huge thank you to all of the women I work with on a daily basis at Capital Corner Dental!! It means the world to me that all these women took the time to participate in a cause that is very dear to my heart! You should all be proud of yourselves for being a voice for the dolphins!
Of course I could not forget or resist including my dog, Abby, who is also proud to be a voice for the dolphins!
And lastly, myself, the person behind Voice for the Blue and I will always be a voice for the dolphins!!
