Japanese Embassy, London. Fri 18 Dec 2015
A message chalked on the pavement at the protest for the dolphins
Blowing up inflatable dolphins for the protest. They had been brought to London folded up on the train
A red banner with several dolphins, whose blood colours the water in the cove as the fishermen stab them again and again
On the other side of the road were police officers in front of the embassy and a protester against whaling who was several hours early
Many of those attending had made their own banners and placards
'Stop Turning blue waters red - save the Dolphins'
'The cove is red'
