In 2008 when Barack Obama was running for president he said, "allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable." Recently Japan's senior vice-minister released the statement that Japan is "determined to continue the program until it leads to resumption of commercial whaling." Japan's whaling fleet is currently on their way to the Southern Ocean to slaughter minke whales and endangered fin whales.
Greenpeace is now calling on President Obama to keep his promise and join the fight to end Japan's commercial whaling in the Southern Ocean sanctuary. As President, Obama has power to help reform the International Whaling Commission (IWC)-- and make them work in favor of whales and not the whalers.
Take action right now! Tell President Obama to stop the whale slaughter!
