According to Greenpeace, this deal would permit whaling even in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary (wouldn't be much of a sanctuary then, would it?). It's ridiculous and outrageous what the United States is wanting to be a part of. We need to stop this action before it becomes a major hazard to the safety of whales. Take action here --> Obama, Say No to commericial whaling. Join me in taking action today against whaling. Once again, the whales need our help for their safety and the safe-guarding of the delicate balance of our eco-system. Let's not let them down!
Here's a reminder of what whaling looks like:

Gruesome, aren't they? I do not want to see our oceans turning red because of corporate greed. Stop and think about the whales and how long we fought for them in the 80s. I leave you with a nicer photo:

Let's save the whales once more!
