Whales: less than a week to decision time

The International Whaling Commission will hold its final vote on a proposal to legalize commercial whale hunting for the first time in a generation. I have already noted the petition here and previously we have petitioned (see here) - well now it is getting very close to decision time. It is important we all make our voices heard.

Here is what Avaaz write: "More than 650,000 of us have signed the petition to protect whales - it's time to reach 1 million! At the whale summit in Morocco, an Avaaz team is setting up billboards, front-page newspaper ads, and a giant, constantly-updating petition counter - all to ensure that delegates, from the moment they step off the plane until they cast their votes, will see from our explosive numbers that the world will not accept legal whale slaughter."
