We all know of the Occupy Wall Street Movement, otherwise known as the Global Revolution. We all know this movement quickly became the spotlight of news for social justice.
But it has become evident over the past couple days and weeks that this movement is not only for economic justice for the poor… it has expanded to to also bring justice to those who experience pain in the oceans!
As the ‘Occupy’ movement grows ever more, it starts to apply from ‘sea to shining sea’. As mass injustice is taking place on the Oceans and its inhabitants, many have protested. But now there is a very popular label for these and it is being used to the max. All over the internet now you can see pages and articles entitled with ‘Occupy _____’, with the blank involving the ocean!
This may be viewed as a huge step, this may not be. But it must mean something, because a trend with an ever-expanding population cannot simply go unseen.
Some examples of these common pages are:
A page protesting the murder of whales by the Japanese in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
A page protesting the dolphin drive hunt slaughter taking place in Taiji, Japan.
An online group on Facebook protesting the captivity of Morgan the Orca, a young orca whale. (To learn more about this story watch this video)
… and many more. Occupy Wall Street is now Occupying the Ocean.
