Fight the Power!

Tiananmen Square. Kent State. Tehran U. When the people stand en masse against those in power, and risk their lives doing so, they forever change the world.

The pro-democracy protesters in Iran are changing the world right before our eyes. This will go down in history as something more important than Obama's election. Are you watching?

This is what fighting for democracy looks like

Iranians show the world how to respond to stolen elections. America has so much to learn!

Stop the Slaughter of Taiji Dolphins!

For such an advanced culture, it is astonishing that some Japanese can be so barbaric and disgustingly cruel. The Cove, a new film that has been hailed as part Flipper, part The Bourne Identity, exposes a sickening and cruel - and illegal business of Japanese fisherman slaughtering wild dolphins in a secret cove in Taiji.

In Japan, fishermen round up and slaughter hundreds and even thousands of dolphins and other small whales each year.

In the small fishing village of Taiji, entire schools of dolphins are driven into a hidden cove after a prolonged chase. Once trapped inside the cove, the fishermen kill the dolphins, slashing their throats with knives or stabbing them with spears. The water turns red with their blood, and the air fills with their screams.

This brutal massacre — the largest scale dolphin kill in the world — goes on for six months of every year. Even more scandalous, members of the international dolphin display industry take advantage of the dolphin slaughter to obtain some few, show-quality dolphins for use in captive dolphin shows and dolphin swim programs.

Learn more about this shame on Japan, and watch the trailer for the compelling movie here. Then take action to stop this barbarism!
