Whales: Final push to stop the hunt
In days, the International Whaling Commission will gather in Agadir, Morocco to vote on a proposal that would legalize commercial whale hunting for the first time since 1986. The global public is against this proposal, but pro-whaling countries are pushing for it hard. Let's make sure these voices are heard. – an international platform for petitions and polls - has already collected over 750'000 votes. Avaaz has a team on the ground in Agadir setting up billboards, publishing front-page newspaper ads, and building a giant, constantly-updating petition counter to show that the world's people oppose whale slaughter. Let's give this campaign a massive boost! Help reach 1 million signatures -- sign the petition, and pass it along to everyone you know.
