Your last chance to say ‘NO’ to EU/Japan trade deal – act now!
Next Tuesday, MEPs will vote on a free trade agreement with Japan. We need them to say ‘NO’ to this deal unless Japan stops killing whales.
You have one last chance to make your voice heard. Please send a message to your MEPs and ask them to vote ‘no’ to the deal on Tuesday and to raise Japan’s whaling as a serious issue in the EU Parliament debate on Monday.
Your voice counts Clint- act now.
This year alone, Japanese whalers killed 503 minke whales and 134 endangered sei whales. The Japanese government is trying to overturn the ban on commercial whaling and disregards any rulings by international bodies against its brutal slaughter.
The EU should not enter into a trade agreement with a country that shows such contempt for international agreements and opinion.
Your voice really does count. If enough MEPs say ‘no’, we could stop the deal. But they need to know it’s an issue you care about. Please don’t just leave this for others to do.
Ask your MEPs to raise Japan’s whale hunting as a serious concern and vote ‘NO’ to the deal next week.
Thank you. We’ll only stop this horrific and senseless slaughter by standing together.
On behalf of the whales and all at WDC,
Julia Pix, WDC campaigns manager
