Washington, D.C.
March – 12:00 p.m. at Dupont Circle (Conn Ave. &
19th St.)
Rally – 1:00 p.m. at the Japanese Embassy (2520 Mass Ave.)

WHAT: The Animal Welfare Institute is coordinating the Washington, D.C. event for the International Day of Protest Against the Dolphin Slaughter. If you live in the area, please join us for a street theater reenactment of the brutal Japanese drive hunts. Beginning at Dupont Circle,“fishermen” will “drive” pods of “dolphins” to the Japanese Embassy, where we will end with a rally to voice our abhorrence of the Japanese dolphin hunts. All are welcome to join in along the walking route or at the Embassy.
WHY: Japanese fishermen brutally chase and kill thousands of dolphins and small whales annually. These cruel massacres are conducted every fall through spring in a handful of towns, causing a systematic serial depletion of local dolphin species. These days, the hunts are also used to provide select dolphins to marine theme parks that pay tens of thousands of dollars for capturing star attractions, likely subsidizing the hunts with this infusion of funds. The remaining animals are used for human food – even though the meat is often contaminated with mercury– or turned into pet food and fertilizer.
