To Whom it May Concern;
We at Raise Ur Paw, a Not-For-Profit Incorporation, are constantly following the Taiji Dolphin Slaughter/Enslavement that is occurring in Taiji, Japan from September to March every year. We must say that such actions against these beautiful and intelligent creatures is truly a crime against nature, and unacceptable in a civilized and humane world that we reside in.
As the continuous outrage and pleas for the banning of this inhumanity escalates, we as a united world are also observing that Government Officials are continuing to ignore and turn a blind eye from the truth that they are allowing to take place, and that truth is inhumanity and cruelty for the mere almighty dollar – a piece of paper that has the blood of innocent lives upon it and on the hands of those that are involved.
This inhumanity is staining a beautiful country with negativity on its reputation, and also subjecting the individuals of the country with health issues that are linked to the many concerns of consuming dolphin meat (high levels of mercury and perhaps other toxins that cause health issues.) and it’s clear to see that such issues, along with the countless lives that are lost and tortured, are not showing any importance to the Government, for they continue to allow this brutality and it is time for a change.
We at Raise Ur Paw take to heart the quote that Winston Churchill once said, “To improve is to change; to perfect is to change often” – and although change can be scary sometimes, it can also be a truly important educational and world changing experience – thus meaning, that if we can show the greatness of a nation by making a change for the better, then perhaps many others will follow our footsteps in creating a more compassionate and humane world in which we live in.
Many animal angels so far have contributed so much dedication, time, effort, money, etc to be part of getting this slaughter/enslavement stopped – individuals who have gone above and beyond their call of duty to help save lives that are truly important, and now the support and power of the Government is needed – whether it be from the Government of Japan, to USA, to Canada – and that support should be more than just concerns, it needs to be actions – for actions speak louder than words.
This being said, such change does not have to just relate to the dolphin slaughter /enslavement of Taiji, but to all issues that our voiceless face on a daily basis, and if Governments truly do hear and speak for the voices of the world, then they will take part in raising their paws along with us to help save and protect the innocent lives that have every reason to be in this world as we do, and that laws are desperately needed to be set and to be enforced – for if we continue on down this path of destruction of our voiceless, then we have truly failed as a world and as humanity.
Please Spread this message and speak up for our voiceless, for we are more than just their guardians but their voices as well.
