Japan to resume whaling in July 2019

The Japanese government decided to resume whaling in July of this year, reasoning that the world whale populations have stabilized.

In it’s peak whaling year, 1964, Japan slaughtered 24,000 whales.  In recent years Japan has focused on Antarctic and Offshore Mink and other whale hunting. Japan also buys whale meat from Iceland.

People who are are concerned about this turnabout should support the boycott of Japanese manufactured goods; particularly motor vehicles and electronics.
