El Panama Hotel & Conference Centre2012 64th Annual Meeting of the International Whaling Commission, Panama City. This is a meeting about the deaths of our whales.

The Japanese buy votes from poorer African and Caribbean countries, by giving them as much as half a million Harpoon Gunpounds each. Discussions for a South Atlantic Sanctuary and proposals were put forward and a three quarter majority was needed for the proposal to be adopted, sadly the final vote was 38 in favour and 28 against and 2 abstentions. The proposal did not achieve the required majority, thanks to the Japanese who bully buy poorer countries votes.

Antarctic Minke Whales

At the IWC meeting it was stated that there had been a decline of 30% in the Antarctic Minke whales.

The Western North Atlantic Right Whale

The meeting discussed that there was threats of ship strikes and entanglements and drastically there was only 400 of the whales left.

Aboriginal Subsistence

This is mostly flaunted by such countries as Denmark's Greenland even the Faeroe Islands (Minke, Fin, Humpback, Bow-head whales and Pilot Whales). St Vincent's and the Grenadines slaughter the stunning Humpback whales. USA (ASW) quota's, (Bow-head and Grey whales) and the Russian Federation (Grey and Bow-head whales).

Many of these countries have been found selling the meat back door.

Many Inuits now have, 4 wheel drive cars, TV's, nice houses and almost everything that everybody has. Theres no need now to brutally and inhumanely kill whales.
