Stop the Slaughter of Whales for Blood Money

Target: Japanese Minister of the Environment Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi

Goal: Ban commercial whaling in Japan.

Japan announced on December 26, 2018, that it was pulling out of the International Whaling Commission (IWC). Cabinet Chief Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters at the time that the Japanese Government decided to withdraw from the IWC in order to resume commercial whaling by July of 2019. Commercial whaling has been illegal since 1986, although Japan has ignored this ban several times. The country officially left the IWC on June 30th, and then one day after leaving the commission sent out a fleet of whaling ships. During the year of 2021, Japan intended to hunt 171 minke whales, 187 Bryde’s whales, and 25 sei whales, including several whales found to be pregnant. 

This continual, explicitly commercial whaling is repugnant, and aside from international opposition and waning interest, harms these majestic, endangered animals. While Japan hunted whales before leaving the IWC, and whaling has been decreasing in the long term, this is a vile practice that should be eliminated immediately.

Please, sign the petition below to stop harmful whaling.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi,

The continuous commercial whaling committed by Japanese whalers and fishermen is both harmful and repugnant. While it goes against the laws of both the UN’s International Court of Justice and the International Whaling Commission, that is beside the larger point. The most important aim here is to cease the death of these endangered and vital animals. Whales are an important part of the ecosystem, and the act of whaling is no longer commercially viable.

Please, stop this repugnant act and ban whaling in Japan.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

      Just Japan? How about Washington, Oregon and Idaho killing sea lions?

      • But the subject of This petition and item is JAPAN’S WHALING.

        Perhaps you can get a petition going that attacks States in the US for their practices. I will gladly sign them like I’ve signed so many others.

  5. Raquel Mikai says:

    Stop destroying our planet and all life on it. Once the earth was beautiful to look at from the universe, today we see its decline…

  7. Damn Japs!! Lowest life form next to Chinks eating dogs)cats! Pathetic race!!

    • You are a pathetic racist. It is HUMANS doing this. As so many other horrors done to our planet and it’s inhabitants….by ALL nations of people. Animal cruelty and exploitation is unfortunately a global problem. You, wherever you live, are not exempt.

  8. STOP KILLING ALL THESE WHALES FOR STUPID REASONS!!!!!!!!

  9. Agree all comments. Kill these fuckers who do this what sort of mongrels we got in this world. Middle eastern cruel cunts kill the lot of them . Asian countries all the same got no feelings or heart for anything. STOP THIS BULLSHIT NOW THE LAWS GOVERMENT ALL THE SAME FUCKWITS.

  10. These creatures DO need to be protected, but how can it be accomplished if countries don’t work together? And by the way, Emmy, you are a racist. How can you blame an entire race for something that the government does and is not what most of the people want? Groups in China are fighting to close down dog meat kennels and slaughter houses. Instead of condemning them, help them.

  11. This is so cruel. Japan isn’t a developed country.

  12. I hate the thought of these whales being hunted to extinction. Countries have to work together to protect the environment, the people and the endangered animals. There should be consensus on how to keep the Earths most endangered species viable and how each country affected can contribute to this cause. Japan should not have withdrawn from this agreement. Hopefully, the blowback from their mistake will cause Japan to reconsider.

  13. MAN as a whole is disgraceful in its treatment of this planet and obviously this planet would be better off without many humans.
    Also, where are all the WOKE millionaires regarding these atrocities???

  14. questi sono gli europei, la gente civile, la stessa gente civile che ha massacrato popoli di altri continenti… e poi si vantano di essere i migliori del mondo

  15. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU JAPAN?!!!! STOP THIS BARBARIC MURDER, YOU SEEM SO HAPPY TO COMMIT. SHAME ON YOU AND SHAME ON YOUR COUNTRY AND ITS CITIZENS, YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THIS PLANET!! KARMA, JUST REMEMBER THAT

  16. Whales feel pain! Research has shown that whales have feelings and emotions as well, of course u don’t need a study to tell that all living, breathing creatures can feel harmful pain and be in agony.
    This is inhumane!! It must stop!!!!!!!
