You CAN'T Trust the Gorton's Fisherman is completed
23764 people took part.



Great news: Thanks to you, the Gorton's fisherman and his Japanese parent company have decided to get out of the whaling business! More than 25,000 of you wrote to Gorton's, sent postacards, attended whale watching meetings, folded origami whales, and made generous contributions, and your efforts have really paid off. Thank you! This isn't an end to whailing, but it is an important milestone in the fight, and it proves what public pressure can accomplish. The next step is the International Whaling Commission meeting in June, where we'll be facing down the Japanese governtment and the billions of Yen they've spent buying off votes to reopen commercial whaling. We'll be needing your help again soon, so stay tuned.
