I agree the Japanese were a cruel race in 1944 and killing whales is equally heinous . We mustn't forget the cruel farming methods of the Western farming system , so cruel. All animals have the ability to feel pain and know fear of death in a cruel manner. No Olympic games until sanity arrives in Japan.

I already signed. But I think there is a wording error there. "Making it illegal to hunt dolphins and whales in Japan would accomplish this!" Yes stop slaughtering dolphins and whales but please by all means keep killing Dall's (and other) porpoises? HUNTING ANY CETACEAN SHOULD BE BANNED

Research my ass, no one has to kill anything to do research on it. That is a barbaric and medieval practice and should be banned everywhere in the world.

It has come to this! Since those in authority that could remedy the horrific dolphin & whale killing, but for years have refused to change this practice, the Olympic Committee MUST refuse Japan from hosting the 2020 games. Why should Japan be held up on a pedastal & revered when they are knowingly breaking international law and engaging in such brutal killing methods, lying through their teeth. A precedent must be set and until they stop this killing & capturing, they should not be allowed...

Let's stand together & make a statement, speaking for those who have no voice!

This is not acceptable - the support for each and every one of these pledges and petitions is a testament that we are no longer willing to accept these actions by the Japanese Government

the whole japanese nation have now lost any credibility in the eyes of the world. The brutallity ,ignorance, and sheer unrelenting cruelty of these few greedy, money led japa.ese... should i call them 'japs' ? is going backwards to the same treatment...or worse... of war prisoners. I do not undersrand or respect a people that can do this WITH THE BLESSING OF THE GOVT.

Not when the culture & livelihood sopports the barbaric & henious acts of pure torture & inhumane death purely for greed of money. I've seen "The Cove"Yeah, we're not perfect in treatment of farm animals but we're working on it.....many organizations are supporting it.

Blood sports on land are banned so why not in the sea. hunting and killing these beautiful magestic creatures is so barbaric and totally unnecessary. It makes me feel sick upset and angry.
