The terrific article about the cruelty of commercial fishing, regarding which I just sent out an alert yesterday citing the UK Guardian, also appears in the Thursday, September 16, Japan Times!
Here's the link to it: http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/eo20100916a2.html
Please send an appreciative letter to the editor, perhaps singing the praises of compassionate plant-based diets. The Japan Times takes letters at https://form.japantimes.co.jp/info/letters.html
Always include your full name, address, and daytime phone number when sending a letter to the editor. Remember that shorter letters are more likely to be published.
