Candlelight Vigil for Erwin-Seattle, WA

Saturday, February 4, 2012 4:45 PM - 6:00 PM

Join us to show your support for Erwin Vermeulen!  Erwin, a Cove Guardian volunteering in Taiji, Japan, was arrested on December 16, 2011 on an accusation by a Dolphin Resort employee.  He was charged with assault.  There were no witnesses or physical evidence to any such occurrence.  Erwin maintains he is innocent and is currently on trial in Japan.  Our march and vigil will illuminate to the world that Erwin is innocent, that he deserves a fair trial, and that the world is watching.  Japan cannot hide from their shameful and senseless slaughter of marine mammals or this farce of an allegation and arrest.

We will gather at the fountain in Westlake Park, right across the street from Westlake Center, and march to the Japanese Consulate, located at 601 Union St.

For further information about Erwin, the Cove Guardians, or Taiji, feel free to go to  If you have questions concerning this vigil, please contact the Seattle Chapter at

Hope to see you there!
