Here are some highlights from some of the more recents protests:
The new hit series on Netflix from South Korea, Extraordinary Attorney Woo, is attracting international attention. For those of you who are not familiar with the show, it features a young woman, Park Eun-bin, who is an attorney starting her first job in South Korea and who happens to be autistic. Rotten Tomatoes rates the show 100% for critics’ endorsement.
But the big surprise of the show is that Attorney Woo is a passionate lover of whales and dolphins. While the show is not expressly about whales and dolphins, they appear here and there in every episode as her psychic muses. Attorney Woo herself is a passionate opponent of captivity and the killing of dolphins and whales.
Capitalizing on the stunning popularity of the series, the International Marine Mammal Project’s (IMMP’s) office in the Philippines came up with the ingenious idea to feature a look-alike Attorney Woo as part of their demonstration against the Taiji dolphin hunts on September 1st. The demonstration garnered wide media attention in the Philippines, and appeared in news stories in Japan Today and the Global Mirror.
PETA supporters with heavy chains blocked the entrance to the Yaarab Shrine Circus, which continues to exploit elephants and other animals, on its opening day. Padlocked together to the chains, activists prevented anyone from entering the circus grounds. PETA is asking Shrine circuses to end all animal acts.
Just before Easter, PETA’s thought-provoking baby barbecues in Charleston, South Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; and Jacksonville, Florida, reminded everyone that animals are just babies when they’re slaughtered and that there’s no real difference between them and human babies. We asked everyone to keep all babies off the grill this Easter holiday and every day by going vegan.

PETA continued to push forward with its campaign against Budweiser, the King of Tears, to urge the beer company to stop mutilating Clydesdales by cutting off their tailbones. PETA supporters crashed Budweiser’s 90th anniversary party in St. Louis and protested at other Clydesdale appearances throughout the U.S.
PETA supporters continue to pressure Whole Foods to stop enabling the rampant abuse of the Thai coconut milk industry, which uses cruel forced monkey labor. PETA “monkeys” have been seen dumping hundreds of humanely picked coconuts and smashing them in protest outside Whole Foods stores in Austin, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Washington, D.C.
Whole Foods closed its D.C. location for several hours after protesters entered the store and held a sit-in on top of the checkout counters.
