The Cove : Death to Dolphins

In The Cove, a team of activists and filmmakers infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.

What Can You Do?

Take Action Today
- Send a letter right now to President Obama, Vice President Biden and Ambassador Fujisaki, Japanese Ambassador to the United States, urging them to address this issue. Sign the letter here then share it with your friends.

The people of Japan will be able to send letters to their Prime Minister and Minister of Health, urging them to help.

Signatures from letters to both U.S. and Japanese leaders will be displayed in the Secret is Out widget to show our strength and unity in saving these dolphins. Expose the secret by posting the widget on your own blog, MySpace or Facebook page.

Text the word DOLPHIN to 44144. They will send you the letter to sign from your phone.This is real. See the movie soon.

I'm not sure I could bear to watch the movie. I could hardly read your post. I'm off to sign the petition and I'll add the widget to my facebook page and then do the texting. Poor things. We humans can be so cruel.
