Hayden Panettiere To Lead Whale Rally In D.C. On Sunday

Hayden Panettiere is once more headed to Washington, D.C. to fight on behalf of whales — and this time she’s bringing hundreds of additional supporters.

The 19-year-old actress will lead participants in an aerial art event and rally to form a giant human pilot whale beside the message “VOTE,” in front of the U.S. Capitol building this Sunday, October 26 at 12:30pm. Hayden will serve as the whale’s “eye” in the shot.

The event commemorates the one-year anniversary of Hayden’s actions in Taiji, Japan, where she paddled out with protesters on surfboards to protect a pod of pilot whales who had been captured by fishermen for slaughter and for sale to aquariums. The actress was later issued an arrest warrant by the Japanese government.

“I turned 18 last year and I’m going to make my first vote count,” says Hayden. “I am looking forward to my visit to Washington to talk to those who will be voting in the upcoming election, to stress the importance of knowing where the candidates stand on the issues that are most important to them, and to be sure that come November 4th, they will actually go out and vote to ensure that their voices are heard.”

You can bet the plight of whales will most certainly weigh on Panettiere’s choice of candidate — though, based on a recent video, we’re pretty sure she’s decided not to vote for John McCain. We imagine Sarah Palin’s track record with animal conservation probably also has something to do with it.
