"Greenpeace campaign manager Danny Kennedy said Japan had been working for months to shore up a strong bloc of votes"

If I were a little less cynical, I would not have the opinion that the Japanese would appear to by buying up more than a few votes. But as I have become a fairly cynical person over the years, you can read into that what you will.
The Japanese will argue that an important part of their research is to find out what whales eat.

**Breaking News**
They eat fish!

Now, however, they have found that their "research" does not supply them with all the dead whales they want, hence a little bit of ........ hmmm ........ is there a more diplomatic word for blackmail?

I hope lots of people all over the world send their protest in and say how terrible we all think it is killing the whales , I think it is also harder when like in Australia we can see them swimming and playing so close to us, and they are such a joy to watch.

I hope so too Ann.
Remember folks, your MP is usually only an e-mail away.
And it's all the more satisfying if they feel compelled to quote you in the House (or whatever the governing body is in your country).

We have just had a baby whale rescued in WA. this afternoon it got caught in a fishing net and could have drowned but for the people who help the whales when they get caught, they did this while the mother was watching what was happening, now both are on there way happy an none the worse for the ordeal. So come everyone who cares for the whales let us rescue as many as we can, email all those concerned and make a difference. PLEASE.

Hello guys, as you know us New Zealanders are a bunch of 'greenies' antiwhaling and antinuclear. I saw on our National News that Japan was being accused of buying votes off poor pacific island nations that were members of the Whaling commision.

There are also Japanese people that do not agree with killing whales anymore. Whale meat is supposed to be full of mecury that causes brain diseases yuk! I hope more Japanese do not buy it so there is no more trade.

Whales are lovely to watch and are great for Tourism. When their numbers are so reduced why don't the Islands develop more eco-friendly whale watching ventures and get their money that way?

The Japanese whaling fleet are very unpopular here in NZ.
Melissa.

I thought you might like to see how wonderful the whales are, to see them play up close to you is great. And what a wonderful way to show young people how beautiful they are and why we must try our best to protect them.
