      Aminatta Forna on the Renaissance generation of Africans Aminatta Forna talks about the African renaissance generation that was created during British decolonisation. She recounts the experiences of her father and other students who left Sierra Leone to study in England. The 'Renaissancers' left their countries for England and America, becoming the new African middle class when they returned, and had high hope of change - change that threatened the men that had come to power in their absence. Forna explains how the 'Renaissancers' never had their renaissance, and how the dream eventually soured.

                Every year, in the small coastal town of Taiji in Japan, small schools of dolphin, porpoise and pilot whales are lured into a hidden cove, with the help of nets and loud instruments which confuse the dolphin's sensitive sonar capabilities. Once captured, the dolphins are left for a day to calm down, before being mercilessly killed by fisherman. Some of the dolphins are sold to dolphinariums around the world, at a huge profit. This brutal massacre, the largest of its kind in the world, lasts for approximately 6 months. Since the hunt began two days ago, 15 pilot whales and 14 dolphins have already been murdered. Although the Japanese Government claims that the marine mammals are hunted for food, it is more than likely that such an orchestrated and ruthless event, which sees 23 000 licenses being issued to fisherman across the country, is simply a means of 'pest control' given that the Government views local dolphins as a nuisance to the booming fishing industry. Following on from a demonstration which took place in Cape Town, outside the Japanes Embassy yesterday, Green Renaissance, the environmental arm of African Renaissance Productions, in conjunction with Save Japan's Dolphins, took to the streets, in an effort to raise awareness of the barbaric hunt, by hanging bloody dolphins from pedestrian bridges all around the city.. We wanted to really push the boundaries by making highly visible protest activations that were accessible to everyday people, people walking down the Sea Point Promenade, students at the Technikon, or simply pedestrians and motorists making their way through the city. Hopefully, activations like these will get people talking, and might even put pressure on the Japanese Government to stop what they're doing. The "Stop the Dolphin Slaughter" awareness campaign was a huge success with hundreds of people stopping and enquiring as to what we were doing. We hope to send a clear message to our local Japanese consulate, one of many around the world, that we will not tolerate harm to one of Nature's most intelligent animals.
