Stop the Slaughter of Dolphins

25 Signatures Goal: 100

\"More than 22,000 dolphins are slaughtered by fishermen in Japan every year. The hunt continues despite worldwide condemnation\"(Sky News). A number of petitions exist condemning this annual practice. These petitions call for us to contact our politicians to act on this issue. While this is helpful, I believe that another way to effectively stop the Japanese fishermen from doing this is by the power of the almighty dollar...or should I say yen. I call upon everyone to sign this petition confirming they agree to stop buying Japanese made vehicles in protest of the annual slaughter of dolphins by Japanese fisheries. Exporting Japanese made vehicles is one of Japan\'s main exporting businesses thereby generating trillions of yen for the Japanese economy (16.2 trillion yen in 2006: http://www.jama-english.jp/publications/MIJ2007.pdf). My hope is that this boycott of Japanese made vehicles will put pressure on the Japanese government to ban the practice of slaughtering dolphins. Once I have received 250,000 signatures, I will forward this to the Japanese automotive manufacturers, and Japanese Embassies in Canada & the U.S. Please spread the word and tell your friends/families about this petition. The Japanese automotive manufacturers are: Toyota, Suzuki, Isuzu, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Daihatsu.
