VICTORY FOR WHALES!
The U.S. delegation greeted us -- "Avaaz! We saw your billboard at the airport!" And Australian environment minister Peter Garrett received our petition there, saying "Thank you very much Avaaz... I believe the people of the world’s voices need to be heard".
This is an important victory for whales -- and for global people power. What we do works. But Japan is already set to continue killing whales for "scientific" reasons. We need to strengthen and reform the International Whaling Commission, and to mobilise a progressive public in countries with pro-whaling governments.
