Editorial Comment:
It seems that Japan disregards the verdict of the International Court of Justice, which found their 'scientific whaling' in the Antarctic Sanctuary illegal.

The Japanese whaling fleet, inspite of the Court's ruling and International Anti-whaling sentiment, has departed for the Antarctic Whaling Sanctuary to illegally kill 333 minke whales.

Once again we draw your attention to our artice 'Why Think of Whales at Christmas'. The Polictical pressure to have Japan cease their illegal and unneccessary whaling must be maintained. Call your Federal Member today!
