in the Southern Ocean Sanctuary, will not be enough to save all the
We urgently need you to take action from wherever you are.
Campaign with us. Call the Danish embassy in your country and tell the
Danish government not to attend the so-called "Normalisation" meeting
that Japan is holding next month in Tokyo.
IN JUST A FEW DAYS' TIME THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT WILL BE HOLDING A
SO-CALLED "NORMALISATION" MEETING IN TOKYO, IN THE HOPE THAT THEY CAN

WHALING. THE MORE COUNTRIES THAT GO, THE MORE THE JAPANESE OFFICIALS
WILL CREATE THE ILLUSION THAT THE WORLD WANTS WHALING BACK.
DENMARK IS ONE COUNTRY THAT IS PLANNING TO GO TO THIS MEETING.
Please, call the Danish ambassador now. Tell them to ask their
government NOT to attend the 13th February Normalization meeting in
Tokyo and to strongly oppose commercial whaling.
You'll find the phone number, who to ask for, what to say, and all the
