The police failed in their attempts to intimidate and shut us down.  Their last attempt to do so was to damage our equipment. They promised our equipment would be returned in a couple of weeks.  But thanks to the generosity of Cove Guardian supporters around the world, within 24 hours we had acquired newer and better equipment to replace the items seized. Indeed, replacing our equipment is, in fact, the best course of action in cases such as this, not only to prevent interruption of reporting on the dolphin captures and slaughter but also to ensure the security of our communications. As an example, Cove Guardian Leader Melissa Sehgal reported that upon recovering her laptop from police, it had been disassembled and broken. It has since been replaced, thanks to you! It is that new equipment which is enabling the live streaming from Taiji.  The police really hate that we now have this capability.  Perhaps they will do something else in their over-reaction mode that will enable us to do even more.
