   Brazil, France, Germany, Britain and the United States, delivered a letter to
   Japanese Deputy Foreign Minister Shigeo Uetake calling on Japan to
   immediately abandon its "scientific whaling" program.
- Bravo to all 25 countries, who rejected Iceland's return to the IWC on 20th May 2002.
- All 15 Countries (lead by Ireland) which supported the whaling ban and the Whale
   Sanctuaries (specifically Brazil, Argentina and India who resisted Japan (ese money) in
   June 2001. The group asking Japan to stop included - led by Ireland -representatives
   of New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Brazil, Britain, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico,
   Monaco, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United States. Let us applaud them,
   but let us also not forget so quickly Adelaide, Monaco and London: NO RMS !
- Germany, who stands strong and has one of the best track records against whaling!
- New Zealand (Conservation Minister Mrs. Sandra Lee) and Australia (Environment
  Minister David Kemp) - thanks for your continued firm stand on sanctuaries!
- German food distribution giant ALDI Einkauf GmbH & Co (who cancelled all purchase
   contracts from the Faroes) More than 1,250 stores said NO!

  who cancelled contracts with the Faroes and/or Denmark in protest against the Faroe whale
  massacres.
- GLOBETROTTER ( http://www.globetrotter-muenchen.de)- Tours - Safaris - Expeditions -

   model for all cities!
- BRAVO Fork City Council for voting against  promotion of boat rides in a Makah whaling
   ship.

   Inslee wrote a letter to President Bush asking him to withdraw support on the Revised
   Management Scheme, which would aid Japan's expanded whaling program and commercial
   whaling.
- IRELAND - continue to follow the way of BRAVEHEART and forget your '97

THE TARGET LIST OF SHAME!  (updated daily):

"IT IS A SHAME IF A COUNTRY OR PEOPLE NEED TO FILL THEIR POCKETS WITH THE EXTERMINATION AND EVEN EXTINCTION OF ANIMALS !
THOSE HAVE NO MORALS AND NO ETHICS.
IF NOT FOR US WE HAVE TO STAND UP FOR ALL OUR CHILDREN AND TO PUBLISH THE NAMES OF THOSE COUNTRIES AND THE NAMES OF COMPANIES AND PERSONS RESPONSIBLE AS ROBBERS OF OUR PLANET.
IT'S BETTER TO LOOSE SOME MONEY THAN TO LOOSE ONES CONSCIENCE !"
 

THE DEADLY:

- JAPAN(Shame, Shame, Shame on you!)
   http://www.jp-whaling-assn.com/index_eng.htm
- The PR company SHANDWICK (aka SHUNNED & WICKED!)
   http://www.shandwick.com
- NORWAY (Realize that you are just obsessed - and get the help from
   a shrink!) The Whalekillers:  http://www.highnorth.no
- THE FAEROE ISLANDS (Do you feel the heat now?)
- The HIGH NORTH ALLIANCE  (from Canada, the Faeroe Islands,
  Greenland, Iceland and Norway) http://www.highnorth.no
- The killers advocate: NAMMCO / http://www.nammco.no
  The North Atlantic Marine Mammal (KILLER) Commission (Faroes,
  Greenland, Iceland and Norway) and observers Canada, Denmark,
  Japan, Namibia and the Russian Federation
- DANISH GOVERNMENT (STOP the support to the killings
  in your(?) "Protectorate" Faeroe !  Listen to the Danish People!)
- RUSSIA (STOP all industrial Whalers - STOP the nuclear garbage
  and Stop the sell-out of nature in your great nation!)

Block them, fight them - wherever you find them!

THE UGLY:

- ICELAND - try to resume whaling and you will be icy isolated !
- CHINA-You believe you can continue with mass-slaughter?-just wait!
- SOLOMON ISLANDS - Before we thought you simply didn't understand
   and asked you not to get mixed up but to make sure your next vote is counted
   FOR a whaling ban and AGAINST RMS! - Now we know what you understand:
   MONEY! And only MONEY and only MONEY again! You let yourself buy from
   whaling nations and sell dolphins into the slavery of foreign business interests.
- ANTIGUA - How can you dare to opt against the monitoring of
  Japanese and Norwegian killer ships! Its not your money used to
  monitor! But: No whaling - no "waste of taxpayers money" - you got
  it? And yourself?: You should finally stand up against Japanese aid
  threats, which make you talk such nonsense and vote against truely
  traditional people and for the interests of the commercial whalers!
- DOMINICA (The truth is out - your Government is corrupt!)
- Antigua and Barbuda, Mongolia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, St Lucia,
   Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts & Nevis, Guinea, Gabon, Benin, the Solomon
   Islands, Palau, Grenada and Panama STOP voting in line with Japan
   and STOP doing such now even against traditional tribal peoples, who live
   solely on natural subsistance.
- St. Vincent and the Grenadines - You were on the right track! Thanks for
  voting against Japan once. But you seem not to get out of your ugly past and
  continued to lick the feet of the Japanese! And also STOP  illegal whaling
  yourself and STOP the longliners in your waters and STOP
  flagging the vessels of criminals!
- BARBUDA, ST. KITTS & NEVIS, St. LUCIA - You serve the Ugly!
- SOLOMON ISLANDS - Before we thought you simply didn't understand
   and asked you not to get mixed up but to make sure your next vote is counted
   FOR a whaling ban and AGAINST RMS! - Now we know what you understand:
   MONEY! And only MONEY and only MONEY again!
- EQUATORIAL GUINEA (Stop whalers, longliners and flagging
  fishing pirates!)
- BELIZE (Stop allowing criminals, like russian poachers, your "flag
  of convenience")
- CAMBODIA (Stop allowing criminals your "flag of convenience")
- PANAMA (Stop allowing criminals your "flag of convenience")
- HONDURAS (Stop allowing criminals your "flag of convenience")
- NAMIBIA (Stop killing fur seals and harbouring whalers!)
- BENIN and GABON, youngest members of the IWC - are you there
  only to cash bribes? The answer after the 54. IWC is YES - AND
  YOU ARE A SHAME FOR AFRICA!
- PALAU - you are no better: So young in the IWC and already with the UGLY!
- DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - STOP THE ILLEGAL CAPTURE OF
  DOLPHINS & STOP THE MANATI PARK DOLPHIN GHETTO !
- MEXICO - Thanks for the Whale Sanctuary support - but now STOP also to
  support pirate fisheries and pirate vessels. And stop chatching dolphins in your
  own waters and especially in foreign seas like around the Solomon Islands !

We call for the widest possible sanctions against these countries and the withdrawal of any preferential trade agreement. We call for a total consumer boycott concerning all products and services of these countries including a TOTAL tourism boycott.
We call for the total isolation of these countries, to ban these countries from any international meeting and the total stop from any financial aid or support deriving from taxpayers contributions, multilateral agreements or private sources to these countries.
 

THE BAD:
(Yes, the listing here is based on proof - however, if you feel that your entity should rank among the GOOD, please provide evidence that you actually are doing it - you can count on our fairness!)

- CETACEAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE (JAPAN) - promoters of false science!
- IWC (on the turn from whale butcher's society to the whale conservation group?)
- CITES (the usual trade negotiators for all the wildlife butchers)
- WWF - World Wildlife Fund (nobody trusts you anymore - best would be, if you
   just cease to exist!)
- IUCN / WCMC / UNEP (the fine smokescreen providers!)
- Greenpeace Denmark (change your support of the Faeroe whale killing!)
- Greenpeace US - Don't support RMS or the increase of dolphin kill quota in tuna
  fishing nets!
- NOAA (US National Oceanographic & Atmosphere Auth.) - Provide science - not
  bias and lies!
- National Wildlife Federation (US) - Don't support increase of dolphin kill quota in
  tuna fishing nets!
- The Nature Conservancy - Don't support increase of dolphin kill quota in tuna
  fishing nets!
- Conservation International - If you are not against the killing of whales you
  support it !  ... and stop just using "Gifts" or taxpayers money ex WorldBank/GEF
  to "legally" steal-buy indigenous peoples' lands!
- UNILEVER COMPANY (Unilever brand names include i. a. Gorton's Seafood
  (also from the Faeroes), Bird's Eye, Langnese, Lipton's Tea, OMO as well as other
  detergents, Dove soap, and Ben & Jerry's ice cream).
  DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM !
- LEGO (the Danish Toys for Children producer), who claims high ethical standards,
  but does not want to speak out against the Faeroes, where children are shown how
  to kill pilot whales with bare hands, clubs and butcher knifes). see: www.ecop.info
- ICELAND - Don't even think to start whaling again !!! Keep your hands off!
- KOREA (Don't be such wimps - your vessels are poaching everywhere!)
- SWEDEN (Close your borders with Norway, whose citizens might be contaminated
  by toxic  whale blubber - and stop to support Norwegian Whalers !)
- FINLAND (Not easy being squeezed between the russian and the norwegian
  whalers - but just opt out!)
- EUROPEAN UNION - Stop supporting pirate fisheries and prosecute your own
   illegal fisheries first! Stop barter trading humanitarian aid for fishing rights !!!!
- MONGOLIA, you are dragged into the IWC by Chinese foresight and by Japanese
  money. So please leave again and enjoy a honest life and your great sour milk
  from your lovely horses on your marvellous plaines - so far from any ocean!
- US and NATO Navy Commands - STOP USING LFAS !
- All other Countries, who do not stop the killer nations to kill whales, list yourself
  here too!

STOP BUYING FROM THEM (goods or ideas)!
STOP ANY FUNDING to them deriving from taxpayers money or private support.
BOYCOTT any tourism to the listed destinations.
 

IMPROVE or LEAVE IWC:

- Sweden, Chile, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Mexico, Oman, Switzerland,
  Spain and South Africa: REFUSE RMS NOW AND FOREVER !
- ANTIGUA - You better really leave IWC - now! Followed hopefully
  by the other Caribbean whaling supporters, for whom blood money
  seems to be so important.
- UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - you slowly gain back your balls.
  But say clearly YES to sanctions against Japan and Norway and NO to RMS!
  ... and not only say something - do it ! Why is it that you still foster
  the dealings of Japan in ivory and dead whales? Are actually your
  Navy interests (incl. LFAS) the core of the deal? Or which other
  interests of the military-industrial complex after 9/11 play a role?
- NETHERLANDS (The people with some of the worst environmental
   track records on earth - at home as well as in  their former colonies!)
  NOW THE DUTCH GOVERNMENT ASKS JAPAN TO STOP, BUT
  HAS THE DUTCH CONNECTION TRULY ABANDONED THEIR
  PUSH FOR RENEWED COMMERCIAL  WHALING?
  APPARENTLY THE RECENT MONTHS SHOW DUTCH IMPROVEMENTS.
- ITALY (Do not go for a pee during IWC voting and stop barter trading guns for
  fish or other favours! That's known - so you do not need protection from whalers!)
- SWITZERLAND (lots of whales in those mountains - odder?)
  Or are you afraid concerning the swiss bank accounts held by Japanese
  whaler-wheeler-dealers or the oil- and fish-mongers from Norway in Switzerland?)
- OMAN - You are a conservationist Sultan Quabus, so why not your
   representatives? - and see: The Holy Quoran: DON'T DO MISCHIEF!)
 

PLEASE IMPROVE MORE:

- BRAZIL - Continue to stand against whaling and to fight against pirate fishing!
- PERU (Don't agree to import DEAD CONTAMINATED WHALES from
  NORWAY!)
- International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) - Thanks for coming out clear against RMP
  and somehow also against RMS, but we need to hear more, that you are straightforward
   against ANY commercial killing of whales, Mr. O'Regan!
- Greenpeace Intl. - Get a CLEAR stand NOW on RMP and RMS and Stop
  Greenpeace Denmark's nonsense concerning the Faeroes whale massacres!
- Greenpeace Australia  - Thanks for your actions against Norway, but please clarify your
  stand concerning RMS !
- People for the Ethical Threatment of Animals (PETA) - Please clarify your stand on RMS !
- EU you MUST now follow up with trade related sanctions against the TOTALLY
  UGLY, since the US seems to have only words but no guts to do so. Borrow a leave from
  Canada, which banned all Faeroe vessels from its waters and harbours ! STOP ALL
  Norwegian Whalers from entering any EU-harbour (like the UK implemented it already!)

(The Makah Whaling and Japanese Whaling .)

traditional about cruelly shooting these majestic creatures with
high-powered rifles. (Michael Markarian)
