Crystal Cave : Japan to Slaughter Humpback Whales    
 Japan to Slaughter Humpback Whales2 comments

Japan will go to a meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in June asking to extend its quota of about 440 minke whales a year to humpback whales - an endangered species. There are only around 4000 humpback whales and this number has only been reached after years of banning the slaughter of these majestic and magical creatures.

Japan should be condemned at the highest levels if they proceed with this application. This has nothing to do with research (which is their excuse for slaughtering minke whales). This is all about consumers and the restaurant trade in Japan.

The Australian Government should also be condemned for the soft stance they are taking. Although in their defence the Japanese do not recognise Australia’s sovereignty over the waters of the Antarctic.

once again... here we have some Info, that leaves us/at least me, speachless of disdain and sorrow and HeartAche!
All I can do is continue demanding Universe to hasten Its Divine Justice to be distributed rather sooner than later...My only consolation is that I know such decreeing is very POWERFUL! And in the meantime; NO MORE JAPANESE Things for me, thank you very much!
THANKS, Salama for this note.
Love/Astrid

Astrid,

We are soul sisters in our fight for justice for animals. Write to whom ever you in protest and perhaps, just perhaps the Japanese may just change their minds. We can but try. Blessings Nemue
