An ongoing battle

I haven't talked about the Cove in quite some time now but that doesn't mean that the atrocities have stopped. Far from it. Legal action has been taken against a Sea Shepherd volunteer for false allegations of pushing a fisherman. Erwin from the Netherlands is facing trial, as an attempt to scare us away. I say us because we are all involved. Do not close your eyes to these awful events.

Call them quickly, it doesn't cost that much, call your home embassy, write an email. One effort is not wasted in the sea of emails and phone calls they receive. More is more! 

This is what happens to them. Every week dolphins day, every day they do all the can to catch as many as they can.
The killers have adopted pithing after film showed them randomly spearing the dolphins.  Pithing is supposedly a more “humane” destruction method.  However we have recently seen through cracks in the tarps what really happens.  The pithing rod is jammed into the dolphins’ backs behind the blowhole, often more than once.  Because it does not enter their brains and only their spinal column, death is very unlikely.  Paralysis is the expected outcome.  The dolphins remain conscious.  They die by drowning on the way to the butcher house or when they are gutted there.  Taiji is a despicable place.  No wonder the children are crying.
