The WorldÂs Whales Are Again In Danger.



Iceland has resumed the hunting of whales.



So far this week 2 whales were killed and many more killings are planned.



These are desperate times the killing of sentient beings must be stopped.



Let your voice be heard.



Your help is requested immediately.



Contact the following agencies now, time is of the essence.

Duplicate this message to everyone you know that care about the whales.



For support:



Green Peace http://act.greenpeace.org/ams/e?a=915&s=whl



The Wyland Foundation http://www.wylandfoundation.org/





For the rant:



Tell the Iceland Tourist Board what you think about the killing of whales!

What are your chances of visiting Iceland in the near future?

Here is the Iceland Trade Council, call them and e-mail them your thoughts. What would a boycott of products made in Iceland do to their economy?

Thanks for all the details



There is no excuse for killing animals. Stating that whaling is for "scientific reasons" is a weak and very unstable excuse that's pathetic and unjustified.



I mean... "I've decided that I'm going to kill a total of 12 of my friends during the course of this year. This is a sceintific study to see if the food supplies go up in my fridge. Uh, since it's a scientific study, that makes it okay."

In a letter dated August 28th, 2003 from the Ambasador of Iceland to the people of the United States of America and planet Earth...



"Iceland's plan for catching 38 minke whales this year is a part of a

comprehensive scientific study on the ecological interactions between

minke whale and other marine species. Similarly it is necessary to

research various aspects of the biology feeding ecology and pathology

of fin and sei whales in the Northern Atlantic. This will be

considered at a later stage.



Sincerely yours,



Helgi
