Please watch The Cove
Tonight we went over to our friends' house and watched The Cove, a gripping documentary about the slaughter of 23,000 dolphins every year in Japan. "The secret is out" the creators of this film declare, and it's about time. Seriously, I'm freaked out about this right now. I know I sound like an informerical, but the horrific slaughter of these peaceful, beautiful, brilliant animals is absolutely enraging, revolting, and heartbreaking. People need to know this is going on, and beyond that the film is also a story about mercury poisoning, government corruption, and the potential depravity of commerce. As well as an action-packed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The horrors take place in this cove, a lovely little place that should be a treasure of nature, instead destroyed by mindless massacre. Until the waters turn blood red with innocent creatures' lives.
We will not keep out any longer.
