Comments on this Consulate-General

I oppose to this brutal and unnecessary slaughter of dolphins.
I recently heard about the documentary film The Cove and was alarmed to find out that more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are brutally killed each year off the coast of Japan. In addition, Japanese consumers are being sold dolphin meat, containing dangerously high levels of mercury, often labeled as whale meat.

I ask that you urge the Japanese government to revoke permits that allow Japan's Fisheries Agency to continue this heinous, dangerous and illegal practice.

I also urge American leadership to ensure that the International Whaling Commission includes the proper management of dolphins and porpoises and a comprehensive plan to stop the slaughter of dolphins in Japan.

These dolphins are horrifically trapped and stressed over night then slaughtered in the early morning hours while you sleep comfortably in your bed. If this were not a crime, this cave would not be considered so secretive as they portray to keep others out from finding out the horrors of what truely happens. Can you honestly keep this from happening another day???
This is an outrage and inhumane.

Your immediate action is needed.We thank you for taking the time to read this letter and most importantly for taking immediate steps of action to stop this. We are counting on you.

Sincerely, Robert R.
