You too can be a part of Japanese whaling!

It seems that the hard-pressed Japanese Institute of Cetacean Research (ICR) needs your support.

As a ‘research organisation’ they would like corporate donors at US$125, and individual donors at US$25, to support them in trying to ‘understand’ more about whales.

You’ll get a newsletter and also a plate full of the best cuts of whale meat.

Oh, didn’t we mention that? The ICR just happens to be the body that kills hundreds of whales every year under contract to the Japanese Government in its so-called ‘scientific whaling programme’

You can find more about this appalling offer at the website of the ICR and you too can help slaughter more and more whales for no more reason than political intractability!
