Taiji whale museum convicted of discrimination

A court in Japan has ruled that an aquarium in Taiji acted illegally when it refused entry to an Australian campaigner opposed to the brutal dolphin hunts that occur in the region each year.

The court in Wakayama, western Japan, has awarded 110,000 yen (£690) to Sarah Lucas, who was refused entry to the Taiji whale museum in 2014 by staff who brandished a sign saying “anti-whalers” were not welcome.

The dolphin hunts begin in Taiji in September each year and involve the herding of dolphins at sea and driving and corralling them into the confines of a cove. Here they are slaughtered for meat or kept alive for sale to marine parks and aquaria across the globe.
