ANIMALS AUSTRALIA ASKS US TO HELP END THE DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER IN JAPAN : OUTCOME



WE DID IT, NETWORKERS
Have just received this from
Glenys Oogjes of Animals Australia:

Victory!
Broome Severs Ties with Taiji!

Thanks to you and thousands of others who wrote to the Broome Shire Council urging them to sever ties with the dolphin-slaughtering town of Taiji, dolphins are now one step closer to protection from Japan's mass annual slaughter.


Dear Miss Eagle,

I have wonderful news to share with you! After being inundated with emails from Animals Australia supporters and mounting international pressure, the Shire of Broome held an emergency meeting and decided to suspend its sister-city relationship with the Japanese dolphin killing town Taiji.

The move by Broome sends a strong message to Japan that the international community strongly opposes the slaughter of 23,000 dolphins in Japan each year.
Please join me in writing a short email to Broome Shire Council, thanking them for making this important decision:shire@broome.wa.gov.au

Whilst Broome's decision adds significant international pressure on Japan to end the slaughter, unfortunately it does not mean that Japan will immediately cease the dolphin kill. The fight to save these dolphins is not over yet. If you can spare two minutes today, please click here for a few more key ways you can help us to end the senseless slaughter of these gentle and intelligent animals.

On behalf of dolphins and all animals, thank you.
