Candlelight Vigil for Erwin-Philadelphia, PA

Friday, February 3, 2012 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Raising Awareness for the Wrongful Arrest of a Cove Guardian.

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 hope you will join us.  Bring your own candles, and make your own signs if you would like (just please do not attach sticks to them).
