Actress/Activist Elissa Sursara Attends Worldwide Anti-Whaling Day Protest
On Friday, November 5th, Sursara participated in a Worldwide Anti-Whaling Day protest outside the Japanese Embassy in Brisbane, Australia.
The actress was joined by Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson and a slew of other energetic activists who were protesting the brutal whale hunts in Japan, Iceland, Norway and Denmark, which takes the lives of thousands of whales each year.
“It was organized by a great guy named Brett Hobbs, a co-coordinator for Sea Shepherd Brisbane. The crowd was huge,” Sursara said. “We were a big, enthusiastic and friendly group. The turnout was amazing and the result was even better.”
What’s next for the budding activist? Sursara plans to travel to Taiji, Japan next month to join forces with The Cove’s Ric O’Barry.
