This is just so shocking and must be stopped now. As a vegan I oppose the killing of any living being.

A water park where visitors will be able to swim with dolphins before sitting down to eat their meat is actually being planned in Japan. You cannot believe it can you.
I had to read the petition several times to get my head round this shocking news.
Gandhi once said

Right now, I am seeing red, blood-red, the blood of many of Winter’s own kind.
Her sweet face is still strong in my mind and the thought of others like her being slaughtered, makes me want to do bad things to those who are guilty.
The petition which is listed below, came as a horrible reminder, that there are still places on this confused plant, where some life has more meaning than others.
While the US and Japan long ago ended their cold post war relationship, which has since become one of extremely high valued goods exchanges…
