The International Whaling Commission (IWC) will be meeting soon to decide the fate of the whales.
My country, Greece, is not yet a member of the Commission. But there are positive signs that the Greek Government might join and defend the whales!
Last year, the pro-whaling Japanese government won a simple majority resolution by one vote: 33 to 32.
Every single vote is crucial this year. We're continuing efforts to get Denmark to vote for the whales, but right now, it is very important to encourage Greece to join the IWC in time for the next annual meeting, in Alaska on May 31st.
As you can see, time is very short, we are only 60 days away from the meeting that will determine the future of whales.
You can help a lot to speed up this process. You just have to print a message to the Greek Government (you can download the message here), take a picture of yourself holding it, and then upload your picture as a comment to my I-GO campaign ID#6801.
It's very simple and fun to do! Please don't forget to add your country's name to the message. Your supporting action will show that the whole world cares about Greece joining the IWC to defend the whales.
The Greek text says "May 2007: Greece opposes whaling".
I will then print out the pictures and present them to the person in the Greek Government in Athens responsible for the IWC application. Click here and upload yours now!
The goal is to have as many pictures as possible, so invite all your friends!
Thanks a lot, and remember the whales are counting on your help!
It's our planet they're destroying...
Please give Greenpeace a hand,show your support!
