2012 People March from Osaka to Taiji in 2012 - JAPAN DOLPHIN SLAUGHTER AWARENESS CAMPAGN

Ocean Elders sponsors 2012 passionate people from around the globe to join in a peaceful 2 week long call to action march and meditation in 2012 in Japan (January or February, while the hunt is still in ‘season’).

The march begins with arrival in Osaka. The 2012 ocean advocates for the rights of dolphins around the world will walk the approximate 200km to bring great media attention nationally and internationally as well as local awareness to this very urgent ocean issue, the hunt, capture and slaughter of thousands of dolphins year after year (in addition to concerns of toxicity of dolphin/whale meat).

With 30km distance walk daily over the course of a week, 2012 individuals with one cause are marching towards Taiji.

Along the walk through the villages, literature and DVDs, in Japanese, are offered to the locals.

Many encouraged to join the walk through part of their city or all the way!

Upon arrival in Taiji, 2012 individuals assemble to the beaches for day long meditations for the oceans, joining hands in sitting silence, lasting several days, again bringing great attention to the world with this incredible peaceful plea for the oceans, for the dolphins.

Of course great logistics will need to be worked through in terms of accommodations, food, safety, weather conditions etc . but if there’s a will, there is so a way!

Now, if this march seems too impossible, than consider just the 2012 people group mediation in Taiji.

The basic premise is to show a large presence that represents a global statement of concern for the plight of dolphins in Japan and worldwide.

Where do I sign up!!! And if this is a success, then the next 2012 people assembly is in the Faroe Islands in July or August!
