Brian Barnes who is with Save Japan Dolphins organization has received a death threat against his life on his business phone. It was left as a message and it says, "STAY OUT OF JAPAN. YOU'RE DEATH HERE IS WAITING". I wonder if others have rec'd the same threat??
I know that in the documentary "The Cove", Ric O'Barry states that a person, and forgive me, I don't remember her name, lost her life there. Ric believes she was murdered for the cause. I don't know the details, but it must be true if it was reported in the documentary.
Now this, a death threat made to Brian Barnes. I can't begin to tell you how sick inside this made me. I've tried to post the recording but have been unsuccessful. But I tell you, the above is word for word what was on the 3 second recording. The only advice I can give to anyone going to Japan is that there is safety in numbers. Make sure you room with someone if you can, make sure you are always with someone when going out, or go in a group. Protect yourself at all times and don't let your guard down.
Even though I never met Brian personally, we are friends on FB. Our relationship had a rocky start, over a misunderstanding, but I have nothing but the highest regards for Brian and wish him all the luck and safety on his trip to Japan.
