Help Stop Japan's Killing of Whales and Dolphins

Japan is the leading killer of intelligent sea mammals. Japan, and only a couple of smaller countries, claim they are doing "research" but are really killing whales and dolphins for meat. The killing methods are cruel. The animals are often endangered. And these family-oriented, intelligent sea mammals are the equivalent of primates on land and should not be eaten. The Japanese government should live up to international agreements, but instead it uses a loophole and pretends to be doing research when it turns ocean bays red with mammal blood. How can we stop this? The Japanese companies that produce cars and consumer electronics are the leverage point that we can use. These companies do not want to be associated with sea mammal slaughter, obviously that would be bad for business. But these multinational companies (Honda, Toyota, Subaru, Sony, Sharp, Panasonic) have the clout to stop the killing.  So let's highlight the responsibility of these companies for their government's actions. Let's send a message by not buying Japanese products one day a month--the FIRST MONDAY of each month. The companies will notice, they will pressure their government, and the Japanese government will quickly see that the costs of killing whales and dolphins outweighs the appetite for such meat. 

Action step: AVOID BUYING JAPANESE PRODUCTS THE FIRST MONDAY OF THE MONTH.  If you sign here, I will send you an email reminder before the first monday of each month. (Change.org doesn't release your email to me; I can only trigger an email to all who signed.) And we will let the Japanese companies and government know why sales are going down on that day, which at a minimum will cause stress in their supply chains and commercial relationships.
