Eat Whale Meat? No Thanks.

"While the Japanese Government claims support for whaling among its citizens remains strong, recent Japanese media poll results conflict drastically with the official line � noting that an overwhelming majority of Japanese citizens have either never eaten whale meat or have not eaten it for a very long time. To change this lack of general Japanese appetite for whale meat, the governments new PR campaign involves advertising vans traveling across the country playing recorded messages exhorting the public to eat whale meat." (Excerpt from the International Fund for Animal Welfare press release from 4/4/02. )
