Subject: Gorton's/Nissui is down; Wal-Mart/Seiyu is next!
Dear activists and friends in AR:
Given the date of the email from Captain Paul Watson (see below), and the
thunder-and-lightning feel of its content, I almost thought that he was
pulling an April fool's joke on us. But knowing that the subject matter is
nothing to joke about, I just sat there in amazement and disbelief. But of
course I believed it, and saw almost at once that HOPE's planned
Anti-Wal-Mart (Anti-Whale-Mart) campaign (see below) is the next logical
step in our incessant drive towards terminating whaling worldwide.
In short, under international pressure, Nissui, one of the major owners of
the Japanese Antarctic whaling fleet, has quit the whaling business, and
other owners of the fleet appear to be follwing suit. This does not mean
the end of Japanese whaling, but when the whaling fleet returns to Japan
from their Antarctic plunder this month (almost 900 Minke whales, plus a
number of Fin and Humpback whales), it'll be limping.
With Nissui having dropped out, Seiyu (see below) is next. Will this start
a domino effect from which, for the Japanese whaling industry, there is no
IT IS UP TO US! Let's get together and perform a resounding anti-whaling
miracle from coast to coast, that will generate a tsunami against the
whaling industry of Japan!
