WHALES: 72 HOURS LEFT
Right now, the International Whaling Commission is meeting in Agadir, Morocco to vote on a proposal that would legalize commercial whale hunting for the first time since 1986.
The global public is against this proposal, but pro-whaling countries are pushing for it hard. Let's make sure our voices are heard.
Avaaz has a team on the ground in Agadir setting up billboards, publishing front-page newspaper ads, and building a giant, constantly-updating petition counter to show that the world's people oppose whale slaughter.
Let's give this campaign a massive boost! Help reach 1.5 million signatures -- sign the petition below, and pass it along to everyone you know:
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.
