A Family Massacred At Sea By the Japanese Whalers
This morning I awakened to the new that the Japanese have begun whaling again. The Dall’s porpoises and minke whales are probably dying this moment as I type. This is a quick way to take action post. We need to tell the Prime Minister of Japan that the killing of cetaceans is illegal and must stop. It is time to let go of the old traditions that we know today are wrong.
Follow this Link and send a message to Naoto Kan. Tell him we want to support Japan, but they need to stop whaling it is illegal and wrong.
Sea Shepherd’s, “News Today” page featured a post,”No Welfare for Whaler’s This Year”. In it they address the fact that Japan has undergone a huge disaster. I think the Sea Shepherd’s sum how the world should respond to dishonorable whalers, who are now killing whales.
“There have been a few critics who have been advising us to lay off Japan because of the recent disasters. The point is that Sea Shepherd interventions are not targeting the Japanese people. We are addressing unlawful activities – whale poachers in an area far from Japan, the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, where whales are supposedly protected by law.
Would the war against drug trafficking be put on hold if Colombia has an earthquake? Would we stop opposing shark finning by Chinese longliners off Latin America if China suffers an earthquake? The answer is “no.” Natural disasters cannot be used as a justification for illegal activity including the violations of international conservation law.”(April 26, 2011 http://www.seashepherd.org/news-and-media/news-110426-1.html)
WE MUST BE THE VOICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE SEA!
