FISHINABOX Whalesong ホエールソング Whale Wars

Whale song is a spotlight on the Australian Japan Summit this year after the World Court judgement on the suspension of scientific whaling permits for Japan and the endless whaling wars between Japan and the Eco Warrior resistance.

STORYBOARD: ( Whale Wars )

WHALERS – JAPANESE SPOKESMAN
我々は、商業捕鯨の再開に向けて、鯨の資源管理に欠かせないデータを収集するための研究を行い、
また、海外からの商業捕鯨についての理解を得るべく更なる努力を続けています。

捕鯨団体が海洋哺乳類を無慈悲に搾取しているという外国人の見方とは対照的に、捕鯨を行っている漁村の人々は動物に敬意を払い、狩猟期の終わりには供養を行っています。

このような日本の文化が理解されていないのは、大変残念なことです。

TRANSLATION:
We aim for the resumption of commercial whaling by conducting whaling research in order to obtain scientific data indispensable for the management of whale resources.

To that end, We will step up efforts further to get understanding from the international community.

In contrast to the foreign perception that whaling communities mercilessly exploit the marine mammals, whaling towns show respect to the animals, with religious services at the end of every hunting season.
It is regrettable that this part of Japanese culture is not understood.

ECO-WARRIORS:
So, basically Japan have been in and out of court for 4 years since 2010 disputing whaling hunting rights. They were hunting with this scientific permit and bagging around 450 whales a season,. basically 10,000 whales since the permit was authorized for supposed scientific research. So the World court questioned why the scientific research, after so many whats, was still inconclusive and basically passed a judgement that the permit just a smoke screen for commercial whale hunting.

The ban was passed his year.

Shinzō Abe the Japanese PM on his post ban visit to Australia make a speech that Japan would obey the ban as they were a good international citizen but that they would seek for reinstatement of the permit.

Frankly This is bullshit, Japanese Whaling trawlers are still out there and how can we accept Japan’s statement about being a good international citizen when they still obsessively pursue the reinstatement of scientific permits to feed a national food fetish ? I mean how popular really is Whale Meant, Whale Bacon ?,. Do Japanese people seriously, i mean seriously on mass agree with the mass hunting, to a point of risk, extinction, one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet ? Come on , its just lies upon lies, the same old story,. and we are tired of it,. sick and tired of the killing , sick and tired of the suited and respectable classes failing, society again and again by supporting unnecessary and barbaric stone age traditions. its time to wipe the fake smiles and handshakes in and out of the courtroom and political halls and stop with the hunting.

商業捕鯨を行っている漁村の人々は動物に敬意を払い、狩猟期の終わりには供養を行っています(Japanese fisherman involved in Commercial Whaling pay homage to the animal, at the end of the hunting season with a  memorial service)

They were hunting with this scientific permit and bagging around 450 whales a season, So the World court questioned , why after so many whales was the scientific research still inconclusive ? and they passed a judgement that the permit was just a smokescreen for commercial whaling
