SHUT DOWN COMMERCIAL WHALING - HELP US KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!
WDCS needs your help to end Icelandic whaling.
WDCS has submitted a legal petition, backed by 19 organisations, calling on the United States government to impose trade sanctions on Iceland for its whaling and trade in whale products.
The good news is that the US, unlike other countries, can do this if it believes Iceland is undermining international conservation agreements. But to justify trade sanctions the government needs to show that it has public support. That’s where you come in. See below for how you can help.
Japanese stockpiles of whale meat are at an all-time high - 6,000 tons - yet the businessman behind fin whale hunting in Iceland still hopes to find buyers in Japan.
We want to put real pressure on Iceland via US trade sanctions.
Please send an email to the US Secrectaries of Commerce and Interior to urge them to take strong action against Iceland.
We have prepared an email for you – it will only take a few seconds of your time. click here to send.

Iceland’s whalers will kill more whales if they can get away with it.
We won't let them. Let’s SHUT DOWN commercial whaling.

Hi! My name is Boy. I'm a male bi-coloured tabby cat. Ever since I discovered that Malcolm Turnbull's dogs were allowed to blog, I have been pestering Clarencegirlto allow me a small space on North Coast Voices.
A life after politicsmusing:
I have long held the belief that it is a bad idea to let humans near strong coffee and any sort of cream cake. It makes them as hyper as a kitten after its first taste of catnip. Which explains why I found my owner giggling over the second career she gave Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop at http://www.singitkitty.co.uk/play/kME96so that she could be gainfully employed in the pop world after the Abbott Government crashes and burns.
A Shout out to Mac the Scottiemusing:
A new Facebook page Maclean's Active Community has just started up and can be found here.
. Hearing Dates: 14 July 2014. Decision Date: 24/07/2014. Jurisdiction: Administrative and Equal Opportunity Division. Before: Professor G.D. Walker, Senior Member. Decision: The decision under review is affirmed.
A little less than Magnum musing:
So who was the person rumoured to have been lurking in the vicinity of Osprey Drive, Yamba, allegedly keeping tabs on Clarence Valley Council staffer/s?
An it's in the eyes musing:
The Australian media is trying to convince readers that how the Prime Minister looks indicates the degree to which the MH17 passenger plane downing in the Ukraine is affecting him. G'aaarn! This is a man who to win an election put bulking product in his hair and darkened it, used a skin tightening product on his face to get rid of many wrinkles, used enough makeup to make a thespian blush and, barefacedly lied at the drop of the hat. A meeting round the catnip patch has decided 4 to 1 that it would not be beyond the wiles of Tony Abbott to irritate his eyes to achieve a suitably "stressed" look for his many media appearances since the mid-air disaster.
after Clarence Valley Council sacked the operators of the public pool at Maclean – apparently leaving it to a local journalist to tell them they had lost their jobs.
A thought to ponder:
In case of bushfire or flood - do you have an emergency evacuation plan for the family pet?
An adoption musing: Every week on the NSW North Coast a number of cats and dogs find themselves without a home. If you want to do your bit and give one bundle of joy a new family, contact Happy Paws on 0419 404 766 or your local council pound.
