Greenpeace Fights Whaling With Anime
An interesting Japanese language commercial from anti-whaling group Greenpeace:
Today, only one country in the world continues to conduct whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary: Japan.
There was a time in Japan during the food shortage hardships of the postwar period when whale meat was taken as a valuable source of protein. We are alive today thanks in a very real sense to this gift, so should we not reach out in gratitude to whales now and seek a path of peaceful coexistence? This is the message behind a beautiful new animated work by director Yamamura Koji. Please join us in eagerly anticipating its release.
It’s certainly better than a lot of other anti-whaling ad campaigns I’ve seen lately.
