Victory! US Threatens Sanctions on Iceland for Fin Whaling!

This alert has been closed, thanks to your help.

US Commerce Secretary Gary Locke has proposed sanctions over Iceland for violation of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) treaty by permitting commercial whaling. This is a strong stance for the US, and sends an effective message to Iceland. President Obama will have 60 days to approve Secretary Locke's proposal.

Thanks for your support,
