Attempts to agree a compromise between whaling nations and their opponents at the International Whaling Commission's (IWC) annual meeting have failed. After two days of private discussions, delegates reported they had been unable to reach agreement on major issues. The deal would have put whaling by Iceland, Japan and Norway under international oversight for 10 years.
To parties of the International Whaling Commission: As citizens from around the world, we call on you to retain the international ban on commercial whaling as the core policy of the International Whaling Commission in its pursuit of conservation of whales.
Thank you for signing the petition to protect whales! Your name has been added.
The more people join this campaign, the more powerful our call will be. Please help spread the word -- the original Avaaz email below to friends and family, and post this link on Facebook:
Thanks so much,
The Avaaz Team

I dont understand all this anti-whaling nonsense. It's ok for us in our countries to kill and eat milions of pigs, chickens and cows, but a few thousand Whales being eaten is evil
