New Ocean Crisis! Japan resumes whaling in earnest

Japan will resume whaling in July of 2019, in spite of serious opposition to this new activity. Japan already imports, mostly for pet food, whale products from Iceland (Iceland an Norway are the other two non-signatories to the currently–in-effect whaling moratorium).

The world needs to show Japan that it does not support this new endeavor on the part of Japan. That country responds to threats to its  trade. We can all do our bit to pressure Japan by boycotting its manufactured products, particularly automobiles and electronics. Lets stop buying this stuff until Japan re-thinks its whaling policies.

Our world whale population already has to deal with plastic and other pollution, as well as climate change. Lets not put additional stress on these precious ocean creatures…

Also, phoning, writing, emailing, texting to various Japanese government bodies and related associations can produce results, too. Tell Japan what you think!
