Japan Is About to Start Slaughtering Even More Whales – sign the protest petition?

sign here to ask Japan not to resume whaling

Japan announced its withdrawal from International Whaling Commission (IWC) ban on commercial whaling

“We have decided to withdraw from the International Whaling Commission in order to resume commercial whaling in July next year,” said Japanese Cabinet Chief Secretary Yoshihide Suga.

Despite commercial whaling being illegal since 1986, Japan has often ignored the IWC ban and now is leaving the IWC to increase its slaughtering of whales as a means of profit.

There is no humane way to kill a whale, and their deaths are protracted and horrid. Please consider signing Care2’s petition to the Japanese government.
