Thu, 06/10/2010

There was an action event held on Thursday, June 10th to stop the annual slaughtering on dolphins.  There were petitions to be signed which will be sent to the government in Japan, the United States government, and the International Whaling Commission.  With the legislation to possibly lift the moratorium on whaling coming up this month in Morocco, it is extremely important for people to get involved in anyway that they can.  Joe Chisolm, production producer for the 2009 documentary "The Cove", was a guest speaker at this event and we all of the audio from it.  "The Cove" won over 60 awards and we urge you to watch it... very emotional, informative, and heart-wrenching.
