London creates a storm against Taiji hunts

On Friday, 7th November, dedicated WDC volunteer, John Faulkes, attended a protest outside the Embassy of Japan in London, calling on Japan to end its cruel dolphin hunts. Here, in words and pictures, he recounts the experience. 

“On Friday the 7th of November I was at the biggest dolphin protest I have ever been to. It was outside the Japanese embassy in London.  There was a huge turnout, about 300-500 people turned up, including families with young children.  Everyone was cheering, blowing whistles, chanting and waving banners all day long. Cars were beeping support as they drove by. 

I was very excited to hear Ric O’Barry was planning to turn up and even more excited when I managed to meet him in person. That really made my day and year.  It was such a pleasure to meet him.  All in all it was great day and seeing all the support for stopping the Taiji hunts was fantastic. I lose my voice every time I go but it’s well worth it, I can’t wait for the next one!”
