Fri – 1/25: Part 2 – Update! “RESEARCH” means “whale hunt” in Japanese & it’s coming to an ocean near you. Deadline 1/30 – email against Japanese whaling.

Update from Jim Hines of the Los Padres Sierra Club!

“My campaign to stop Japan from whaling off the Ventura and Santa Barbara county (California) coast (in international waters) is gaining momentum.
I will be meeting with Japanese government officials (in Los Angeles) next week and the week after with California Fish and Wildlife officials in Sacramento on this matter. The ocean waters surrounding Channel Islands National Park are one of the world’s richest bioregions and is plentiful in plankton which is the main food source of all whale species.
Whale watching is a major economy in the coastal areas of Ventura and Santa Barbara with thousands of people from around the U.S. coming here to see and learn about whales and the ocean environment in general. I detest the fact that Japan thinks that whaling is needed with so many our world’s whale species at risk and I will do everything in my power to stop Japan from whaling.”
Have you guys done this yet? Whales don’t have email accounts and depend on us.

Action – Write an email against Japanese whaling.

Write it as big as you want, guys. It won’t make it true. 

Action – Write an email against Japanese whaling. 

Greetings Marine Activists:
 Whales, majestic creatures of great beauty but the strength of their beauty cannot prevent a massive torpedo from ripping apart their huge bodies.
And the killing of whales will start soon as Japan has officially withdrawn from the International Whaling Commission and will start to kill whales in a few months. Several other nations (Russia, Norway, Australia) have also announced that they intend to begin whaling. 
Worldwide public pressure is important if we are to stop the slaughter by Japanese whalers.
The state of California will consider drafting a letter at a meeting of the CA Fish and Game Commission on February 6 2019. We would like this letter to be sent to the Japanese Prime Minster and other Japanese government leaders.
We would like the letter to strongly voice California’s objection to Japanese whaling.
Please send a email to the commission before January 30, 2019 asking the commission to send a strong letter of opposition to whaling by the Government of Japan.
Emails go to the commission at this address: fgc@fgc.ca.gov 
Please reference commission agenda item # 29.
