Greenpeace: Iceland Whaling update

Dear friend,

THANKS TO YOUR EFFORTS as part of the Iceland whales pledge, we're overjoyed to announce that Iceland has drastically reduced its whaling programme. There will be fin and sei whales in Icelandic waters this year who owe their lives to you!

Plans to kill 250 whales this year, including fin and sei whales, have been shelved in favour of a hunt of only 25 minke whales -- a massive step backwards in the face of domestic resistance, absence of market, and the kind of international outcry that you've helped build around this issue.

More than 57,000 of you have now pledged to visit Iceland if the government stops whaling. That represents a value of more than 67 million USD, against a whaling programme that earned only 4 million dollars in its heyday.

But we need to be clear: while we welcome this positive step forward from Iceland, WE WON'T BE TRAVELLING TO ICELAND UNTIL THE WHALING PROGRAMME STOPS COMPLETELY.

We're concerned the whaling interests might believe they can continue whaling at reduced numbers as a way to escape the glare of publicity and opposition. So let's send the government a little reminder that our offer was absolute: we will visit the beautiful shores of Iceland only when the whaling programme ends completely.

PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO SEND A MESSAGE TO PRIME MINISTER DAVID ODDSSON:
