Today, The International Court of Justice ruling regarding Japanese whaling in the south seas is illegal.

“Japan shall revoke any existant authorisation, permit or licence granted in relation to Jarpa II [research programme] and refrain from granting any further permits in pursuance to the programme,”  Peter Tomka, International Court of Justice’s Judge said on Monday.

Since 1988 Japan has slaughtered more than 10,000 whales. A victory for the whales and all those who stood to protect them.

April 2013, Japan announced its haul from the Southern Ocean was at a record low by “unforgivable sabotage” by activists from the environmental group, Sea Shepherd.
