Sting Thinks Public Debate Will Help Stop Dolphin Slaughter in Taiji

On Wednesday night, after his concert in Tokyo, Sting met with friend and dolphin activist Ric O’Barry. The two were originally introduced back in 2008 at the Sundance Film Festival when Sting saw the film O’Barry starred in, The Cove. From that moment on, the singer was an ally to the cause.

Before the concert Sting told the Associated Press, “I was blown away by the movie. We should not be eating dolphins.”

He believes that starting an internal dialogue within Japan is the best way to stop the slaughter in Taiji. Many Japanese people are against killing dolphins, so Sting thinks that rather than applying pressure from the outside, a dialogue within the country would be the dolphin’s best bet.

Sting told O’Barry, “We only evolve as a species when we are in a crisis. We don’t want an empty sea.”

It’s quite apropos that Sting and O’Barry would choose Tokyo as the place to talk about dolphin slaughter in Taiji and the start of internal debate. Perhaps the move was planned by the two of them to get people talking. If so, then I say they are PR wizards. I hope it works. Internal pressure from Japanese citizens would do wonders to stop the dolphin blood bath happening in Taiji.
