A Week at the Cannes Film Festival

Commentary by Captain Paul Watson
It was a very busy week for Sea Shepherd in Cannes.
I’ve had a few people critically asking just what was I thinking by going to Cannes. What does the Cannes Film Festival have to do with conservation and protecting life in the ocean, they asked.
Well as it turns out – a great deal.
First Sea Shepherd France organized a showing of the important new film Cowspiracy on May 15th. About five hundred people viewed that film on the impact of the meat industry on our environment. I highly recommend it.
The next day on May 16th, Sea Shepherd France presented Blackfish to an audience of over 1,000 at the Palais des Congrès of Mandelieu. Much appreciation to Jean Luc for renting the venue for Sea Shepherd and to Sea Shepherd Nice for organizing it and making it such a success. The night raised some 22,000 Euros for Sea Shepherd France.
Sea Shepherd France President Lamya Essemlali and I gave talks at both the showings and it was an opportunity to address the captivity of Orcas in the nearby Marineland in Antibes, France.
I had the great opportunity to meet Donald Ranvaud. Yana and I and +Omar Todd  had dinner with him and he invited me to speak at a World Bank presentation the next day to talk about climate change. Donald was Executive Producer of The Constant Gardner and Co-producer of City of God. He is also the Ambassador for Latin American cinema.
The film festival also presented opportunities to meet people in the film industry interested in producing environment themed documentaries and movies.
And I was given the opportunity to be interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter on the importance of the movie industry to focus on environmental issues. That interview is attached to this report.
Yana and I also attended the Red Carpet Premiere of The Lobster and we had the opportunity to attend a couple of dinners and parties where we were able to speak to quite a few people on issues of ocean conservation and climate change.
On May 20th and 21st, Lamya and I spoke to two schools in Aix en Provence and the evening of May 21st we gave a public presentation to another 500 people attending La Fête de la Nature that was held at the Museum of Natural History of Aix en Provence. Our talk was complimented on stage by the creation of a unique piece of art crafted by Aurélien Raynaud, a life size shark made from chicken wire that was incredibly impressive. Much appreciation to Sea Shepherd Marseille for organizing the evening in Aix en Provence.

At the Cannes Film Festival, art, not politics, is the expressed focus.

TAIJI OFFICIALS REMAIN OBSTINATE
3 hours ago, the Taiji Whale Museum and Mayor Sangen's reaction to the JAZA decision.
Good translation:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Taiji town mayor Sangen said that He will protect the dolphin hunt which fishermen have legal rights. The town will not be shaken by the decision.
Taiji Whale Museum needs to consider withdrawal or expulsion from the JAZA said by Director of Taiji Whale Museum. He also said that he will keep telling JAZA about local effort until the dolphin hunt season starts in September.
8 hours ago, the news broke in Japan that JAZA agreed not to take Dolphins from the hunt.

The people of the world are like a pod now cut off from escape by the commotion of Entropy that is putting pressure on our peaceful means.
The forces of System Isolation incorporated ring fence thought inward toward consumerism while in Arctic evidence of restart of P/T rises..

An Amazingly Wonderful Development for the Dolphins of Taiji

JAZA Cuts Ties with the Dolphin Killers of Taiji.

Sea Shepherd has been opposing the slaughter of the dolphins since 2003 in a campaign we have called Operation Infinite Patience.

Finally today our patience has paid off.

The Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA) has voted to no longer purchase dolphins from the killers of Taiji.

Last month, JAZA was given a choice by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) to either stop purchasing dolphins from Taiji or be permanently suspended from WAZA.

JAZA made the decision to stay with WAZA

After years of pressure from Sea Shepherd, the Dolphin Project, Earth Island Institute and others, WAZA ruled that the Taiji hunt was "cruel," and made the decision that that none of its members can purchase dolphins from the dolphin butchers of Taiji.

In a letter to WAZA, the Japanese group, which comprises 89 zoos and 63 aquariums, said it would abide by WAZA's decision.

"It is our wish at JAZA to remain as a member of WAZA," chair Kazutoshi Arai said in a letter addressed to WAZA President Lee Ehmke.

“This is a landmark decision by JAZA,” said Sea Shepherd founder Captain Paul Watson. “Will it end the slaughter? We do not know yet. But what it will do is undermine the market for capturing dolphins at Taiji. The captures are where the money is. Killing dolphins for meat alone cannot sustain the dolphin drive. This is a significant blow to the butchers of Taiji and wonderful news for the dolphins in the waters around Japan.”

Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians will continue to monitor Taiji to see what happens next season. Taiji will remain under the international spotlight until the killing is permanently ended.

‪#‎BREAKING‬: Sea Shepherd Announces Operation Sleppid Grindini, Faroe Islands Pilot Whales Defense Campaign, 2015
Sea Shepherd will return to the Faroe Islands in June 2015 with a new campaign to defend against the on-going slaughter of protected pilot whales.
Led by Sea Shepherd Global CEO, Capt. Alex Cornelissen, the campaign will have the organization's strongest sea presence in the region to date. The MV Bob Barker and The MV Sam Simon will be joined by the The MV Brigitte Bardot, and supported by a passionate team of onshore volunteers.
“Sleppid grindini” is the traditional order used by the grind foreman to call off a pilot whale hunt. It literally means “set the whales free.”
Help us to set the whales free! Click through to find out how to become an onshore volunteer for Operation Sleppid Grindini.
Operation Sleppid Grindini Website Coming Soon!

Call of Action from Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson!
"I need your signature.
Hi everyone, I can use your help with this petition to get the Costa Rican government to drop their bogus charges against me. They are trying to extradite me for stopping a shark finning operation in 2002 in Guatemalan waters. This was done at the request of the government of Guatemala. No one was hurt. Nothing was damaged. Sharks were saved. Costa Rica has a problem with that. The same courts that let the murderers of Jairo Mora Sandoval go free because the police and prosecutors conveniently lost the evidence now want to put me in prison for 15 years for saving sharks. We need to keep the pressure on Costa Rica to enable us to return to defend marine reserves, turtles, sharks, whales, dolphins and fish."

Los intereses de unos pocos que se enriquecen devastando la vida en los mares han convertido a Paul Watson, su principal defensor, en un fugitivo de la supuesta “justicia”. Y son nada menos que los tribunales del país que más alardea de “ambientalista”, los que lo persiguen desde hace doce años con una causa judicial inventada por aleteadotes ilegales de tiburones y apoyada por las mafias económicas que asesinan a mansalva y sin restricciones a l...

‪#‎BREAKING‬: Military And Police Board Last Two Toothfish Poaching Vessels In Cabo Verde Thanks To Sea Shepherd Intel
While in Cabo Verde on unrelated business, Captain Peter Hammarstedt happened upon the wanted poaching vessel, Songhua.
Shortly after, Sea Shepherd crewmembers stationed in Cabo Verde noticed the arrival of a second vessel at Mindelo, which had pulled into port alongside the Songhua. The vessel was later identified as the wanted poacher, Yongding.
“We are now looking at the very real prospect of being able to completely rid the Southern Ocean of the Bandit 6 for good.” Capt. Peter Hammarstedt

Doesn't anybody realise what they are doing? I am from Iceland and I hear news the events like sinking"illegal"whaling boats, going around Faroe island destroying property of the whalers trying to feed there family and ruining ancient, special celebrations of getting food on there dish. Now try to imagine a group that goes around The US every year saving turkeys from being killed so the Americans could not get there thanks giving meal.THAT WOULD BE A DISASTER.Everybody would hate the and they would be illegal in the States. That is basically the same with sea shepherds but they are worse because they are global Criminals!! PS. I LOVE DOLPHINS(on my plate)

I thought this was an excellent organization until I received an unsolicited telemarketing call to my cell phone from the Sea Shepard Conservation Society. My first pet peave is destruction of our ocean life. My second pet peave is telemarketers and phone solicitors. Even though I am registered with the US Government Do-Not-Call list, The Sea Shepard Conservation society chose to overlook this and had the gall to call anyway. I will never donate again.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Hi Pepper, sorry to hear that but we don't run a calling program here in Australia. It may have been in USA however if people are called they are supposedly on the membership list, so maybe you were on that? I know we hate to bother people without their permission and yes we hate telemarketers too. Apologies!
