The Cove

When: Wed., April 21, 8 p.m. 2010

In an interview with the Ocean Preservation Society, former dolphin trainer Ric O'Barry equated the Japanese tradition of large-scale, systematic dolphin slaughter to old American "traditions" like slavery and denying women the right to vote. "When traditions inflict harm on 'human rights,' it is time to rethink one's tradition. All dolphin and porpoise meat is many times more toxic than allowed by Japan's own health laws." At 8 tonight, look for his Oscar-winning documentary The Cove at CC's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu). An introduction from environmental ethics instructor Marion Hourdequin precedes the free screening. — Bryce Crawford
