I'm not sure about the accuracy of the narration (Joaquim Phoenix is a strident vegan ARA), nonetheless, the images in the video are extremely gruesome and disgusting. If the info in the video is in fact accurate (always take info presented by animal rights acvtivists with a grain of salt), some form of sanctions should be applied against japan. However to entirely boycott all japanese products you'd pretty much have to live in a cave.


To compare this to the Canadian seal hunt is absolutely inane.

I think that just to talk about this issue is fine .... but if you expect anyone to take any notice ... may be will have to wait for some time

Here is the responce I got from WWF in Greece when I posted the video link with a question. Can you pelase verify if this video is an actual fact and is there anything we can do about it.

Two possibilities I suppose:

1) They don't give a fig

2) They have had 7,554,329 emails about it already and are on the case but have neither the time or resources to answer all the emails.

Could easily be either!

..or, as a lot of companies do, they may have a filter that automatically deletes mails with attachments/embedded links

Kind of a stupid thing to do?! If my PC at work did that it would delete about 3/4 of the legitimate email!

Then again it would cut down the workload a lot. "Nope, sorry, never got that one, could you try re-sending"

Truly sad and inhumane!!! Disrespect for the other animals of this planet is a disrespect for ourselves. When will we learn to get along with our world instead of destroying it?

Its very easy to attack those Japanese fisherman but the same attitude towards nature is perpetuated all over the world.

One of my colleagues passed me this info.....

Hi Everyone

I have spoken to the information desk at the Japanese Embassy in London. They will accept letters addressed to:- The Japanese Embassy
101 - 104 Piccadilly
London
W1J 7JT

Contact No:- 0207 465 6543 or 6544.
E-mail:- info@jpembassy.org.uk

I did ask them if the letters would be read or binned and they assured me that no letter is binned. Bear in mind this is a country that did not recognise the Geneva Convention, is THE biggest culprit for deforestation of the rainforests and THE biggest users of ivory. I find it very hard to believe anything they say.

Another place worth protesting to would be the Japanese Information & Cultural Centre. Can't find an address but the contact No is 0207 465 6588 - Fax No 0207 491 9347. Judging by the number they are probably within the Embassy itself.

I am too angry and upset at the moment to write anything, if I do it will be rude and derogatory in the extreme.

Hope some of you will put pen to paper.

Talking of the Geneva convention they aren't the only ones - there are a few other large countries who bend it to suit. Don't get me wrong I am not trying to defend the Japs - just that they aren't the only evil ones around!!!

Including the UK who waited until northern ireland was "sorted out" in 1998 to sign the 1977 aditional protocols!
