Today makes the start of the infamous dolphin slaughter season in Japan. Around the world, activists are gathering in their own ways to mark the day with protests, prayers, and initiatives aimed at spreading awareness on the issue.

Ric O’Barry, one the world’s leading dolphin activists, ventured to Taiji, Japan this morning to view the killing cove and lead a prayer group in marking the occasion. “With the rain pouring down, we made a circle and bowed our heads for a moment of silent prayer for the souls of the dolphins that would be killed in Taiji this season,” he wrote.

Despite the regional police conducting drills earlier this summer in an effort to control “foreigners” protesting the hunt, O’Barry said they were nothing but respectful towards the group. “I am very happy to report that the Wakayama police acted in a very professional and friendly manner,” he added.

Earlier this week, Sea Shepherd announced “Operation Infinite Patience: Return of the Cove Guardians“, saying that they once again intend to have a second-wave of volunteers come to Taiji over the next six months to non-violently “intimidate, intervene, harass, and considerably slow down the dolphin killing.”

“Sea Shepherd will provide the leadership and the advice required to maintain the operation within the working guidelines and parameters of Japanese law,” a release reads. “It is a delicate line to walk, managing to push the envelope, while being aggressive yet lawful, but most importantly, demonstrating to Japan and the rest of the world that the dolphins of Taiji will never again be slain out of sight and out of mind.”

    Die painfully okay? Prefearbly by getting crushed to death in a
    garbage compactor, by getting your face cut to ribbons with a
    pocketknife, your head cracked open with a baseball bat, your stomach
    sliced open and your entrails spilled out, and your eyeballs ripped
    out of their sockets.

    I would love to kick you hard in the face, breaking it. Then I’d cut
    your stomach open with a chainsaw, exposing your intestines. Then I’d
    cut your windpipe in two with a boxcutter.
    Hopefully you’ll get what’s coming to you.

    I really hope that you get curb-stomped. It’d be hilarious to see you
    begging for help, and then someone stomps on the back of your head,
    leaving you to die in horrible, agonizing pain.

    S T F U, before you get your face bashed in and cut
    to ribbons, and your throat slit.

The Impossible burger doesn’t need to be overtly healthy – it just needs to be vegan.
