Japan will resume whaling in earnest starting in July of this year. Further, interests in Japan are trying to market the inclusion of whale meat in the diet to young people (i.e develop new consumers). And we already know Japan imports whale meat products from Iceland for pet food manufacture.
Will Japan Eat the World?
How can you help bring pressure to bear against the Japanese whale meat business. Boycott Japanese goods, particularly automobles, electronics. Stay away from Shushi Bars; much of their product even outside Japan is imported from Japan. Write, phone, text, email the Japanese tourism authorities — tell them you are not happy. Make much noise!
