Stop Imminent Whale Massacre in Japan and the Netherlands

Fin Whale

Target: Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte

Goal: Stop an imminent whale hunt by blocking the trade of whale meat in the Netherlands.

In just a matter of days, more than 180 endangered fin whales are going to be slaughtered by a tycoon who harpoons whales for sport and ships their meat and carcasses through the Netherlands to Japan to be used as ingredients in dog treats. We must stop this whale hunt before it even begins: there are very few countries where one can store over one hundred whale carcasses. Germany and Finland have both already disallowed the trade of these specific fin whales, leaving the Netherlands as the lone holdout. We must draw the global community’s attention to this practice now and ensure that the Dutch not allow whale meat to be transferred in their port.

We must encourage the Netherlands to uphold their reputation as leading global advocates for environmental change. They have the chance to set a worldwide precedent against the slaughter of endangered majestic sea creatures by stopping the whale hunt. The hunt, which is going to begin early next week, could easily be stopped if Prime Minister Rutte halted the transfer of whale goods in his country. The people will not stand idly by while yet another precious species is destroyed for necklaces and dog treats.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mark Rutte,

In a few days, over 180 members of the endangered fin whales species are going to be mercilessly massacred by a tycoon who each year kills whales for sport and profit and ships their meat through the Netherlands to Japan for dog treat ingredients. We are demanding you put an end to this whale hunt before it starts. The nearby countries of Germany and Finland have both already denied the tycoon his trading rights, leaving your country as the lone holdout.

We implore you to uphold your country’s reputation as a leading global advocate for environmental change and animal rights protection. It is possible for you to set a worldwide precedent against this garish display of waste, carelessness, and destruction. The hunt is planned to begin early next week, and could easily be stopped dead in its tracks if you denied the tycoon the rights to transfer whale goods in your country. It is essential that we learn to place the survival of an entire species before the satisfaction of our dogs.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Pure infantile primitivism – what kind of idiotic monsters are able to handle and destroy living creatures in that way is unbelievable – monsters deserves monsterwork too.
