Despite an international ban on trading in endangered species such as the fin whale, Iceland’s whalers continue to thumb their noses at the world, the moratorium on commercial whaling and the diplomatic sanctions imposed by the US government. Obviously diplomatic sanctions haven’t deterred Iceland’s whalers.
Please tell President Obama that past diplomatic sanctions are not enough — we need strong targeted trade or economic sanctions against the companies that support Iceland's whale hunts.
We're looking to generate 40,000 public comments to the President and we need your voice to be one them.It’s time for President Obama’s administration to strengthen the US sanctions to economic sanctions and ban the import of any Icelandic products that come from companies involved in their fin whaling.
Stronger sanctions on Iceland's commercial whaling
Dear President Obama,
