Save the whales BOYCOTT JAPAN

Petition published by Hans Lak on Feb 21, 2009
2895 Signatures 
Target: Japanese Government
Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):





To call the whaling programme research is a hoax. The International Whaling commission has declared that the results of the programme are currently of no use, and non-lethal alternatives exist for determining all of the programme objectives relevant to whale conservation. 4,000 tonnes of the whalemeat which the hunt produces remains unsold, giving the lie to the suggestion that the whale hunt could become a commercially sustainable activity.

The current whale hunt in the Southern Ocean is neither scientifically useful nor commercially viable.

We will Boycott Japan and stop buying Japanese products until the killing of whales stops!

Hans Lak

Mr. Naoto Kan, Deputy Prime Minister of Japan

Dear Ministers,

To call the whaling programme research is a hoax. The International Whaling commission has declared that the results of the programme are currently of no use, and non-lethal alternatives exist for determining all of the programme objectives relevant to whale conservation. 4,000 tonnes of the whalemeat which the hunt produces remains unsold, giving the lie to the suggestion that the whale hunt could become a commercially sustainable activity.

We ask you to stop the killing immediately! The current whale hunt in the Southern Ocean is neither scientifically useful nor commercially viable.

We the undersigned ask you to stop the killing now and will stop buying Japanese products until the killing stops!

Sincerely
