Iceland is also clearly planning to resume international trade in whale meat, as like Japan and Norway, its domestic market is stagnant and it cannot even sell the minke whales that it is currently killing.
Commercial whaling is cruel, unnecessary and threatens the survival of whale populations.
AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO EAT MAHI MAHI, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT A FISH, BUT A DOLPHIN, A FELLOW MAMMAL, OF THE WHALE FAMILY !AND PROTEST HIS/HER APPEARING ON THE RESTAURANTS' MENUS IN YOUR AREA.
Iceland believes the world has stopped caring about whales. We need to send a message loud and clear that we still care and that we do not support the resumption of commercial whaling and international trade in whale products.
Please send a protest e-mail to the Icelandic Government now by going to:http://uk.wdcs.org/go/NL061019whaling
Please join our work to end commercial whaling for good, by adopting a whale:http://www.adoptawhale.com
The International Whaling Commision meeting in St. Kitts has seen
the shameful and evil coalition of Japan and Denmark, along with other evil
nations like Greenland and the Faroes and some developing nations that have
been bought off by Japan using their political pull to make the vote 33 to
32 and for the first time since the 1940's, making whaling happen AGAINST
THE WILL OF THE MAJORITY OF THE WORLD'S PEOPLE! MAKE YOUR VOICE COUNT!
EMAIL THE DANES WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THEIR CRUELTY HERE.

The New York Times wrote ,"A Representative Whale Hunt," which stated, "Though minke whales are relatively plentiful, sperm and Bryde's whales were nearly wiped out in the 1980's, before they came under the protection of the moratorium. Japan's actions pose a threat to their survival."
1. Refuse to buy Japanese and Danish products as long as the Japanese business community undermines the conservation work of treaty bodies such as the IWC and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
2. Convey your outrage over Japan's and Denmark's outlaw whaling and its reckless behavior as the leading international destroyer of wildlife and wild places. Tell the Japanese Foreign Minister that Japan's vote-buying strategy, in which tens of millions of dollars of fisheries aid was given to poor nations in return for their pro-whaling votes, is an outrageous subversion of international democracy and is reminiscent of Soviet control of puppet states around the world.

3. Urge the US Secretary of State to do everything possible to block Japan�s and Denmark's schemes to gain a Security Council seat. Japan is pressuring the international community to award it a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. But Japan�s flagrant violations of conservation treaties�and outrageous vote-buying practices�make it an outlaw nation unworthy of such a responsible position.
Letters should be addressed:

4. Demand full accountability from any group you support. Some groups, such as World Wildlife Fund, advertise themselves as wildlife protectors but are encouraging rapid adoption of the Revised Management Scheme (RMS). This will lead to renewed commercial whaling.

EcoMermaid EcoCelebrity EcoInterviewee, Skateboard legend, artist, and environmentalist, Peggy Oki is heading a major drive to collect origami whales from all over the world to add to a massive whale curtain which will be presented to help save the lives of countless whales !
Peggy Oki's Origami Whale Campaign to Save the Whales
16 May Update and Call to Action: With each year Japan, Denmark,Norway, and Iceland increase their self-made quotas to hunt whales. This year the whaling quotas from Japan (1,173), Norway (1,052), and Iceland (50-70) total 2,285 whales. This is an increase of 885 additional whales in just 2 years since the 1,400 origami whales project (in 2004).[For background information o�n the Curtain of Origami Whales, please scroll down this page to *Children's Whale Art project (Spring & Summer 2004)].In 3 years, over 5,400 whales will have been slaughtered.
I am working with WSPA.org to display the curtain of origami whales at the upcoming International Whaling Commission's 58th annual meeting in St. Kitts and Nevis 2006 (mid-June). An additional section of 885 origami whales will be added to the original curtain (representing the increase in whaling quotas of this year).We need more origami whalesthe first week of June.
Would you like to help by folding and then sending origami whales to me? If you would like to participate*, here is a link with instructions o�n how to fold origami whales: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/origami/whalePlease send origami whales to me (must be received by June 9th), via US mail to: Peggy Oki, P.O. Box 864, Carpinteria, CA 93014Thank you for consideration to help with this project!
Note from the Editor at EcoMermaid.com
We�d announced the interview with Peggy Oki, (reknowned skateboarder and whale advocate ), earlier and had been initially elated about what we�d first perceived as a major victories for whales.
Instead, it�s been another betrayal by the corporate-run government
of Japan. Like the U.S., the Japanese government has twisted the votes and wishes of the public to save whales and connived to find a way around their own laws and international laws and treaties. Now, they�re calling it taking whales for so-called �scientific research�, and whaling continues to land these most magnificent of mammals o�n the sushi plates and even in the Japanese Wal-Mart stores as packaged meats. (Also boycott Wal-Mart ! See links below)
The same lying and twisting of laws and treaties, the distorting of facts and the manipulations, and the blatant disregard for the will of the people that Bush and his minions are using to go after the Arctic Wildlife Preserve as we speak and that has him and his legions going against the laws passed to protect our American horses from slaughter is at work against the whales, including dolphins.
We call all of our EcoMermaid readers to help us initiate boycotts against
the products of all nations that continue to pervert the will of the people,
including the U.S. and Japan.
Only by hitting the cruel villians where they feel � which is o�nly in the moneybelt
� will they ever begin to follow the will of the people.
Please follow these links and help to change the tide for these most helpless of victims.
Boycott Japan�s Kill-All Policies
WE LOVE WHALES
Their size, like that of elephants, makes them even more vulnerable to the
interests of soulless money-mongering corporations
than the rest of the endangered populations. They, alas, have nowhere to hide and their food supplies are very scarce. They can o�nly alter their routes, migrations, and habits somewhat as they try to survive and as their food resources shrink due to human overpopulation,pollution, overfishing, and other activites.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win" Mahatma Gandhiji
WE ALL LOVE WHALES
The fact that we are priviaged to live among the families of whales is a
great thing to all peoples of the world - a gift of God, a priceless
treasure of life.
Their majesty, beauty, and grace bestow awe o�n all who are lucky enough to encounter them physically in the wild, but all of us breathe better, just
knowing that they roam in their slower oceanic realm, migrating up and down the latitudes effortlessly, as they mate, cruise, and bear their young in
hidden coves along coastlines throughout the seas.
We all love whales.
If the powers in office don't hear our voices on these vital issues, they
will be overthrown. To carry cruelty to the extremes that the Bush administration and the Republicans have brought evil that our planet has never known before.
Pray for President Obama and the Democratic Congress and Senate as they struggle with the hideous state of our union that they must fix!
Born of sheer greed, the worst Republicans, more intent on their corporate profits than on the wellfare of our world, let alone of the inhabitants on it - these fantical reactionaries need to understand that
the vast majority of people on earth want a clean environment, a safe and
peaceful society, and kindness exhibited to the helpless, including all animals.
Protect the greatest living beings who have ever lived. Protect the whales !
There will be consequences for all our actions - and, sadly, even more
for our lack of action.
TAKE ACTION TODAY ! SAVE OUR WHALES !
LOVE WHALES HERE- SIGN THE PETITION TO PROTECT WHALES TODAY !
AND THEN GO HERE AND SEND THIS EMAIL AND TELL
THEM WHY WE WANT TO SAVE THE WHALES !
And go to register to vote and protect our entire world. Make it your mission
to defeat the Republicans and take the power back! Our very survival depends
on it join the Democratic Party even if you don't think they're doing much. The truth is, we are a two-party system, and at vote for the Democrats means a defeat for the true villains of our world.
