Dear Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: I am not from US but I know they will welcome you to their country where you hope to assuage stringing criticism about your stance on Japan‘s brutal past. Over the last 70 years you have improve your country but it is not enough. You need to focus on empathy towards understanding people and animals and to give them a life worth living.

There is a lot of cruelty in Japan which you misleadingly call tradition (the meaning of tradition is; custom, ritual, practice, habit, belief) or convention, which means resolution. We cannot go around living our belief’s when somebody or something get hurt or killed.
You could make it your mission to resolving this frenzied killing of dolphins and wales. By resolving this disgusting habit you would save yourself the embarrassment in future of assuages stringing about your stance on animals. I don’t understand why cruelty heightens Japanese pleasures. Stop this cruelty that turns the sea red now.

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

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.
