Letter: No more whaling in Whale Sanctuary

EDITOR:

Right now the Japanese whaling fleet is in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary hunting whales.

This is the fourth time the Japanese have gone to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary since President Obama made the statement that "allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable."

According to a recent Greenpeace poll, 83 percent of Americans want the president to stand by his pledge to strengthen the ban on commercial whaling.

Please ask President Obama to use all the diplomatic tools available to him to reform the International Whaling Commission and stop the Japanese from whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
