Global Greens welcome International Court of Justice whaling decision

3 April, 2014
The Global Greens whole-heartedly welcome this week’s ruling by the International Court of Justice to end Japan’s so-called ‘scientific’ whaling in Antarctic waters and not grant future permits under the current research programme. In response to a case started by Australia in 2010, the Court found that Japan’s whaling program in the Southern Ocean was not scientific and was therefore illegal under the rules of the International Whaling Commission. This decision is the culmination of a decades-long campaign by Greens and community groups to stop commercial whaling in the Southern Ocean and allow whale populations to recover. The Japanese government has said it will abide by the Court’s ruling and the Greens hope that this will mark the beginning of the end of commercialwhaling world-wide. Read more
