Listen up, President Obama!
Sean Penn, Cher, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Ellen DeGeneres and William Shatner, along with others have signed a letter written by Russell Simmons urging you to step and and stop Japan’s annual roundup and slaughter of bottlenose dolphins!
It's high time this tradition be stopped — and we're fully aware how cultures deserve their own traditions and how they should be respected. That is, as long as they're not bringing ANYONE or ANYTHING harm!
The letter was addressed to Caroline Kennedy, the U.S. ambassador to Japan.
Here's some of what the letter said:
William Shatner is just one man.
One handsome, extraordinary man with the voice that sounds similar to a beautiful harp.
So when the Star Trek star speaks, we unequivocally listen.
For a new Greenpeace ad, Shatner makes the insightful point that pet owners would do anything to keep their beloved ones safe from harm.
But those same animal lovers seem nonchalant about the destruction happening to earth's animals and its environment as a whole.
We should protect ALL the animals, or as many as we can!
