The Brosnans Need Your Help NOW to Save Whales

Written by PETA | June 17, 2010

Could the Brosnans be any kinder? First, Pierce helped homeless animals by designing a spay-and-neuter license plate, and now Pierce and his wife, Keely, are leading a truly vigorous international effort to make sure that the worldwide ban on whaling—which is now in jeopardy—remains intact. The ban has been in effect since 1986, but the International Whaling Commission (IWC) is considering lifting it if the three countries (Japan, Iceland, and Norway) that are currently ignoring the ban will reduce the number of whales they kill each year. In short, the IWC is proposing to reward these countries for their continued whaling during the international moratorium.

In the weeks leading up to the IWC’s vote on this issue, more than 144 scientists and experts have signed a petition urging the IWC to keep the ban on whaling. Pierce has also made this heartfelt plea to the Obama administration not to support a proposed plan that would allow Japan, Iceland, and Norway to continue killing whales while the moratorium is in place: Please, listen and act: The time is now!

 

 

Join Pierce, Keely, and other compassionate people who are working to save whales by urging President Obama to take a strong stand against the slaughter of these animals. Call and fax, and get everyone you know to do the same—this minute. If we can’t save the whales, what hope is there for other animals?

    Nothing I can say more that Thank You and bless your soul. I also will NEVER buy anything made in Japan again and will spread the word. Again bless you.

    I am trying to start a grass roots drive to stop the Japanese whaling. I would like to see everyone stop buying Japanese products; cars, TV’s, all electronics, everything manufactured by Japanese companies regardless of where it is made until they agree to stop whaling. Japan is the only country in the world that has not agreed to stop killing whales. They slaughter 1,000 whales each year and have been doing this for a long time. Can you help promote this? Please ask your friends to help and to let their friends know it is important to pass on this message. You could also send an email to the Japanese Ambassador to the U.S. at: ichirofujesaki@mofa.go.jp and let him know how you feel about whale killing. Mahatma Gandhi said; “The greatness of a nation and it’s moral progress can be judged by the way it’s animals are treated.”

    I join other compassionate people who are working to save whales by urging President Obama to take a strong stand against the slaughter of these animals. President Obama spoke up and supported the polar bears it is our fervent hope this President will do the same for whales. Thank you. Good luck in all that you do Mr President.

    I don’t understand why Pres Obama keeps doing the opposite of what he promised during his campaign. I really don’t like him and probably wont’ vote for him now.

    I just wrote to the White House and I posted it on my Facebook. We have to get as many people as possible to contact the White House. This is outrageous! Thank you for posting this.
