This year alone, #Japan
has killed 503 minke whales in Antarctica, such as this beautiful #Antarctic #minke #whale
, under the guise of ’scientific’ research and despite international opposition.
Thanks to all of your help and support, we have made some considerable progress over the last two and a half years to raise this issue within the EU. Our campaign was echoed by many MEPs (Members of the EU Parliament), who called on the EU Commission, that was leading the trade talks with Japan, to raise whaling as the big elephant in the room. Following these calls, the EU Parliament hosted a debate session in which MEPs called on the representatives of the Commission to ensure whaling was a topic in the meetings with Japan.
Today is our last chance to make the EU listen to the voice of all the people who want to see an end to the senseless killing of whales. Today the EU Parliament will discuss the conclusion of the trade agreement. Please join us in the call on the Members of the EU Parliament to raise Japan's whaling as a concern and deal-breaker in the discussions and vote NO to the trade agreement. Write your MEP here:
