It is not illegal, which is why no-one can takle the Japs to court over it.

 

Do you think that after all this commotion, they simply forgot to take legal action?

 

Sure, if the Japs hunted the whales in Colorado, that would be illegal. I hate to break it to you, but America does not rule the world.

6 years ago

The Australian Federal Courts have ruled that the Japanese whaling company Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha is breaking the law by whaling in Australian territory

 

Bigger type does not make you correct. Again, the Japs are not whaling in Canberra. Australia does not rule the world either.

 

If you want legal advice, ask a lawyer, not a hippy with an agenda to mislead.

Freediver C you are one of those idiot Trolls I deal with everyday, it seems to be a full time job! And why do you call them Japs?
Sure I'm against them killing whales, that goes without saying, but it is very rude to call them Japs! I'm of Native American Decent [Cherokee Indian] & a grandson half black & a granddaughter half asian & a granddaughter half mexican.
And it does make you wrong to kill everything for profit! Mankind is killing off everything, everywhere & sooner or later we are next.
We all should care! I am not a vegan eather, but I am still in the right & a decent person who is not greedy. I only want to eat when I'm hungry, & feed my family & give the rest to the needy people, ie: the Native American Indian people who got their land taken from them.
They have respect for Earth Mother and all animals & only took what they needed & utilized the whole animal and shared with all!
I think you are a Troll of a subhuman being who has no respect for our planet and all other living beings. Do you understand we are killing off ourselves as well?

6 years ago

Let me sum this up, calling people Japs, is like the N-WORD! And I have a multie mixed family, and I am sticking up for the animals/voiceless against TROLLS like you! You "PEOPLE" seem to come out of the cracks of the internet like cock roaches!!!!!!!!!
Karma, I am a firm believer in Karma. What you do to others will come back around to you, so you must deside should you do good or bad? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

If I am "misleading" people, freediver, than so is the BBC (British Broadcast Corperation)

No they are not. They reported on it objectively and explained that it is meaningless. The Japs are not bound by Australian law and are not whaling in Australian waters:

 

The Federal Court said Japan had broken domestic law by killing whales in Australian waters off Antarctica.

It is not clear what effect the ruling will have, as Japan does not recognise Australia's Antarctic claim.

that whale meat is NOT going into "scientific research" but into the food industry

 

You think the meat should be wasted?

6 years ago

yeah, and to keep it frozen, cost also a lot of energy, which is bad for the global warming

Noone is even eating it, or buying it.

 

Yes they are. I would even give it a go if it were not illegal to import it.

I thought you said it was NOT illegal? lol

 

It is illegal to import it into Australia. It is not illegal for the Japs to hunt in international waters. Do try to keep up.

6 years ago

A WHALE SANCTUARY and a WHALING MORITORIUM make whaling illegal.

 

Actually, no it doesn't. The Australian government has no authority to unilaterally declare new laws for international waters. Like I said, Australia does not rule the world.

 

Do you honestly believe the law is against the Japanese? How do you reconcile this absurd belief with reality? Are the actions of Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace based on one big lie that they need to perpetuate in order to justify their actions?

Yea! You are RIGHT! NOONE "owns" Antartica, but it has been declared a WORLD PARK, and a Sanctuary!

By the people who don't own it? How would you feel nif I declared New York a sanctuary and said no-one was allowed to live there anymore? All this feel-good mumbo jumbo does not change the fact that you are wrong about the law. It is a sorry reflection on Greenpeace that this forum is being used to spread such misinformation almost unchallenged.

Who protects this "World Park"? Volunteers upholding the International Laws!

You mean vigilantes? People whop don't understand the law but feel the need to enforce it anyway? The Japs are breaking no international laws.

Japan is NOT doing "scientific research"

 

Yes they are.

 

http://www.ozpolitic.com/sustainability-party/why-allow-whaling.html

 

Most biologists are loathe to throw out perfectly good meat just because it was acquired in the course of scientific research. This does not make their research invalid. It just means they believe in sustainability.

Why Japanese Whaling is ILLEGAL
6 years ago

I see Mr Free-Diver is still winding everybody up over the issue of whaling and every-time the answers destroy his petty arguments.

My question why is Mr Free-Diver in Greenpeace?

Because of the conversations I've read he is always in Favor of Whaling surely he would be better off working for the Faroe Islands??

6 years ago

why dont you ask your own counrty, Australia, to do the whaling for you?

I think we should take it one step at a time. We will allow other countries to whale first, then we will allow the importation of whale meat, then we will legalise local whaling.

And THAT is illegal poaching.

Not according to the IWC, or international law. Tell me Nyack, what is it that determines whether something is actually illegal - what you really really want to be illegal, or what the law actually says?

The whaling disturbs the entire Southern Ocean ecosystem, and many endangered sharks and turtles are injured and killed as by-catch

That is just stupid. Do you really believe that?

 

http://www.ozpolitic.com/sustainability-party/why-allow-whaling.html

6 years ago

What defines it? Exactly what I said in my very first post.

Japans whaling activity is allowed under international law. Everyone knows this. There is no question of the legality among sane people.

The Australian Federal Courts have ruled that the Japanese whaling company Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha is breaking the law by whaling in Australian territory

Correction. They have ruled that they are breaking Australian law in territory that does not belong to Australia under international law. If you actually read the ruling they admit that it is meaningless because of this.

6 years ago

It is illegal, and they KNOW it is illegal- otherwise? they would just say,

 "we are whaling for food and it is perfectly legal"!

 

They dont say that. They lie and try to cover that up.

 

You are not making any sense Nyack. Whether you think it counts as scientific is irrelevant and your half baked 'analysis' is about as far from an informed legal opinion as you can get. You wouldn't go offering unsolicited medical advice about something you know absolutely nothing about and insisting you are right. So how is it helpful for you to mislead people with stupid legal advice? How does it help Greenpeace's reputation for people like you to spread these absurd lies in their name? Does Greenpeace really need you to lie for them to justify their cause?

6 years ago

Nyack C. you do make sence you are very clear! Freediver C Yes IT IS illegal- otherwise? they would just say,

"we are whaling for food and it is perfectly legal"! But they don't so We the people [who care!] Do our level best to fight the ignorance that mankind is so full of, ie: like you, Freediver C ! And no they should not waste the meat when in the first place they are not supposed to be killing the whales anyway. You are not making any sense Freediver C, do you not know how to read? Whether you think all that Nyack C. said it counts as scientificor is irrelevant and your half baked 'analysis' or is about as far from an informed legal opinion as you can get. And you wouldn't go offering unsolicited medical advice about something you know absolutely nothing about and insisting you are right. So how is it helpful for you to mislead people with stupid legal advice? You seem to feel you know more then him and or GreenPeace How does it help Greenpeace's reputation for people like you to spread these absurd lies in their name? Does Greenpeace really need you Freediver C here spouting out your disusting none support of our whales and marine life? You are a destroyer of Mother Earth, our Oceans and our fish and whales, etc! You are a HATER, A TROLL! You clearly don't care about Greenpeace and their cause all of our cause. CLEARLY YOU ARE ABSURD and nothing JUSTIFIES YOU being here! I've been confused why you are here and why you won't go away???????????????? Everyone else with me on this one here???

6 years ago

But no- they lie and use the "scientific whaling" loophole

There you have it. What type of loophole is it? It's a legal loophole. Do you understand what that means? I should answer for you once more. It means that what they are doing is legal.


Does Greenpeace really need you Freediver C here spouting out your disusting none support

 

If you think Greenpeace would be better off having people like you spreading blatant lies on their behalf unchallenged, just say so. That appears to be what Nyack thinks.

6 years ago

This is not a question of what I want. It is a simple question of fact.

 

Fact: The Japanese whale hunt is legal.

6 years ago

You even admitted it yourself, when you explained that they are exploiting a legal loophole. There is a reason why they describe it as a legal rather than an illegal loophole. Is any of this sinking in?

 

Do you really think Japan is blatantly breaking international law and no-one can be bothered bringing them to justice? People try all the time. It is not the lack of trying that gets in the way, only the fact that the law is on Japans side.

 

http://www.ozpolitic.com/sustainability-party/why-allow-whaling.html

 

Thats why I tell you, have your own government do the whaling for you and stop trying to whore Japan because you want the experience of sucking on whale blubber.

 

Like I said, I am merely responding to your rediculous assertion that Japan is acting illegally.

 

Does Greenpeace want you to lie for them? Do they even agree with you, or do you think greenpeace is wrong on the law as well? Can you find any reputable organisation that will validate your delusion of legal competence?

My daughter is alive!
6 years ago

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with the discussion, but I've been going through a very tough time:  My youngest daughter, Angela (20 yrs.) is teaching English in Japan this year and we lost contact with her after the eathquake struck. It was 24 hours of sheer agony waiting to hear from her, but finally she managed to borrow a cell phone and send a message that she's alive.

 

Angela's teaching group is in Sakata, Yamagata which is on the other coast from the worst of the disaster. They have intermittent power so it was very cold the first night and they are making sure they have enough non-perishable food to get by in case of shortages. Thank goodness her little students are alright, but they don't know about the teachers and students on the other side yet. She says they can't watch the news because it is too devastating when you are so close to what is happening. I just want to bring her home, but I don't know if that will be possible.

 

Anyone who suggests that this tragedy is some sort of "divine retribution" for Japan's activities related to animal welfare must seriously consider their internal values as a member of the human race.

 

The following is an extremely well researched article written last year explaining why Japan continues their whaling activities even though it doesn't seem to make any sense to do so.  The author provides insightful answers to virtually every topic discussed here to date and more:

 

http://the-diplomat.com/2010/12/10/the-real-reason-japan-keeps-whaling/3/

 

Every year, Japanese whaling provokes international outrage, hugely damaging the country’s image. So why does it keep doing it?


‘It’s Gojira versus the whalers,’ the headline screamed. Welcome to the latest instalment of the whale wars, where truth has long been a casualty.

Thank you for your concern for my family and our painful circumstances. 

 

There was NO mention of "racism", killing of anything, or "pro" nuclear energy in the article I posted.  It was simply for informational purposes only and does contain some highly enlightening information.  Apparently some people do not feel the need to enlighten themselves as they appear to already know everything.

 

I will continue to pray for those who have lost lives, loved ones and homes in Japan during this tragedy.  I will also continue my work in assisting those of all cultures to understand the importance of Biological diversity and help them to assimilate these principles into their lives without destroying their livlihood and cultural values and beliefs.

 

Best of luck to you doing whatever it is you are doing...

I'm sorry but I've been concerned about the painful circumstances. And calling them Japs is "racism", killing of anything, was mentioned in the above as well regarding whaling. People do care and are worried myself very much so as well! I have family there. I have a very muti mixed family I deal with "racism", in my family constantly! My daughter has to often leave the park with my grandchildren because they are mixed race for their own safty. So I have to respectfuly disagree with you Cindy P. There is 1 person in the above who spoke out of terms! Doesn't mind calling them Japs or eating whale meat is a bad thing. It sounds to me you agree with him atleast on the whaling issue? Maybe you should re-read and or take your own advice. (Please seek Therapeutic Couselling) Whaling is out dated and very wrong! We are destroying and taking away everything and leaving nothing!!!!!!!!!!! GREED IS A UGLY THING NOTHING TO DO WITH LILIHOOD OR CULTURE OR BELIEFS, ETC. Like in some contries beating live animals before skinning them alive is a belief anf culture that the meat gets tender but in reality the animal suffers greatly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OUTDATED AND NO EXCUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST LIKE KILLING GIRL BABIES BECAUSE THEY WANT MORE MALE KIDS! WTF!!!!!!!!! OK. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM?????????????????????????

Does Greenpeace agree with you that the whaling is illegal?

mercury poison
6 years ago

And again it is because of the greed and the stupidity of people that there is so much mercury in the meat of whales, dolphins, ....

It is because we pollute the oceans with mercury and the poor sea animals who have to survive on fish and other seafood eat all this mercury the people put in the ocean (mostly from the gold industrie) and they suffer above all other problems also this terrible poissining, with brain damage and headache's etc.
It is a pity but it is worse for them then for the people who eat whale or dolphin meat, because these people can also eat other things and the creatures in the seas don't have any alternatives.
We, people give so much problems to our fellow living beings on our Mother Earth. Shame on the human race for countless matters!

6 years ago

So all these people, including the most powerful man on earth, agree that the Japanese whaling is illegal. And what do they do in response? Ask them nicely to stop breaking the law?

 

Can you not appreciate the absurdity?

6 years ago

In answer to your earlier question, what is legal is ultimately defined by the courts. If no-one can successfully bring charges against someone who is so blatantly 'breaking the law', even on video, then it is obviously not illegal. Think about it. Not sure why common sense is so rare among the anti whaling herd.

 

http://www.ozpolitic.com/sustainability-party/why-allow-whaling.html

 

Noone controls Antartica- it has no government- only a treaty signed by 17 countries. Therefore there is no traditional law enforcement and no government seems to have money to patrol the waters.

 

Again you are wrong and display total ignorance of international law.

 

You don't need to 'patrol' the waters if Japan is not denying what they do. You can even see it on the news. The facts are not in dispute, only the legality. (Actually, the legality is not in dispute either, at least among people who understand the law, or have a bit of common sense.)

 

Japan has been successfully brought to justice for illegal fishing in international waters - without video evidence, without a massive public outcry etc. The key difference of course is that they were breaking the law in that instance. Not so in the case of whaling.

 

Think about it.

6 years ago

Apparently, Freediver, you think "DIPLOMACY" is absurd?

Do you think allowing a country to blatantly and repeatedly violate international law is diplomacy? What makes whales so special that all these countries will allow Japan to illegally slaughter them while happily bringing the Japs to justice over some fish? Why is it that the Japanese whalers have been 'tried' in jurisdictions that have no real authority (eg the Australian case you were so confused about) but not in the one legal system that actually has the authority? Why haven;t NGOs like Greenpeace started legal action? Is Greenpeace allowing the Japs to slaughter whales to be diplomatic?

When are you going to face the reality? All these claims it is illegal are just posturing. Everyone knows it is legal - hence the term legal loohole.

Racism and innapropriate attitudes
6 years ago

Well, I guess Canada is next then, since I hear through a promo by one of the blood-sucking "Non-profits" that we have "A Culture of Cruelty", in reference to one or the other of our "barbaric" practices such as seal hunting or allowing our indigenous peoples their rights to hunt polar bears for subsistenence (which means to earn a living and does allow them to sell their right to a bear and act as Guide to a Trophy Hunter, the income from which supports entire communities).

 

Then I suppose China is in for an earthquake due to Bear Bile Farming, killing dogs and cats, and who knows what else people will think of to judge them for.

 

Might as well kiss Australia goodbye for killing kangaroos and likely all sorts of animals we haven't even criticized them for yet!  Goodbye Freediver!

 

Looks like the good old US of A will be the only country left standing after the great "retribution" is done!...possibly parts of Europe also.  Only the perfect shall survive.

 

(Funny thing about the "Trophy Hunters"; seems they're mainly weathly folks from the USA and some from Europe.  You couldn't find a Canadian with a spare $45,000 to hunt a Polar Bear even if they wanted to.)

It isnt legal, when you use a legal loophole

Can you explain the 2nd use of the adjective 'legal' in that sentence?

6 years ago

That example does not apply here. Saying a murder was an accident instead would involve lying about what actually happened. The Japanese are not hiding anything and there is no disagreement with them about any of the facts. Furthermore, the law in this case makes no distinction based on political motive. It only covers what the Japanese do, not what they are thinking about while they do it.

 

The legal loophole covers what the Japanese are actually doing. Otherwise they could not get away with doing it year after year.

 

This is why it is legal. It is why they can get away with doing it over and over again, cameras rolling. That is why, despite all the rhetoric from certain politicians about 'real action' they never actually do anything.

 

The only real test of whether something is legal is whether the courts can stop it. There have been court cases on this issue. They have only been able to issue statements, and those statements acknowledged an inability to legally stop Japanese whaling.

6 years ago

the entire whaling fleet is destroyed

 

I guess this puts your claims about legal knowledge into perspective.

6 years ago

And futhermore, if the whaling were not illegal, Greenpeace and Sea Shepard would be arrested by the international whaling commision.

So you are happy to use this as a measure of what is legal for Greenpeace, but not for the Japs? Bit of a double standard don't you think?

 

What authority does the IWC have over Greenpeace? What mandate would they have to arrest them?

Stop being deliberately obtuse
6 years ago

 

Nyack, it was obvious that I was being facetious.  You deliberately pretend to "miss the point" in order to be argumentative and downright abusive. (Do you really think that just because I'm Canadian I carry a Hakapik to the office with me each day in case I should happen upon a radom seal pup in Toronto?)

 

You know very well my point was that for anyone to suggest a human tragedy of the magnitude that has happened in Japan is due to animal cruelty is not only insensitive, but positively evil.

 

Let's face it, we could all post horrible graphics depicting each other's nations cruelty to animals, but where does it get anyone?

http://current.com/green/88811075_end-aerial-wolf-hunting.htm

 

"Explosive new video blasts the justification for Alaska's current aerial wolf hunting program and rallies voters to end it. Using testimony from Alaska Department of Fish & Game staff, a master hunting guide, and Board of Game members, this video exposes the fallacy behind Governor Sarah Palins claim that predator control is based on sound science. Declarations that the program is for the benefit of subsistence hunters are shattered with documentation showing that sport and trophy hunters take up to 73% of prey in areas where aerial wolf hunting has taken place."

 

Do you see me accusing you of condoning aerial wolf hunting just because you're an American?  I am interested in truth and facts.  Without those two things any attempt at saving wildlife and the environment will not be taken seriously and could result in loss of credibility.  While I am not condoning killing of anything, especially Whales, I do feel there are some instances when killing some animals is warranted, 1) for human protection 2) in some cases for food 3) Indigenous people's rights to hunt.

 

One of the "facts" that I do agree with Freediver on is that Whaling by the Japanese is not technically "illegal" at this point in time.  This does NOT mean that I approve of it, only that it IS technically legal.  There are two reasons for this: 1)  by definition a "loophole" in the law makes the "act" legal.

 

LOOPHOLE - The definition:

"An omission or ambiguity in a legal document that allows the intent of the document to be evaded.

Loopholes come into being through the passage of statutes, the enactment of regulations, the drafting of contracts or the decisions of courts. A loophole allows an individual or group to use some gap in the restrictions or requirements of the law or contract for personal advantage without technically breaking the law or contract. In response, lawmakers and regulators work to pass reforms that will close the loophole."

....cont'd

 

Reason 2)
6 years ago

The second reason it is technically "legal" is because, as Freediver has pointed out it is "International Law", which means outside of virtually declaring war there is no viable method of enforcement.

 

I have already posted the link in Freediver's thread.  These are the IWC stat's on whale takes by nation:

 

"Catches by IWC member nations in the 2009 and 2009/2010 seasons

 

Special Permit -Japan -   North Pacific 

101 Sei

50 Bryde's

165  Minke

1  Sperm


Special Permit -Japan -   Antarctic

1  Fin

507 Minke


* Including 1 struck and lost.
** Including 3 struck and lost.


The Japanese research programmes in the Antarctic (JARPA II) and North Pacific are continuing on the basis of existing long-term plans (although Japan is not taking humpback whales in the Antarctic in order to facilitate discussions on the future of the IWC).

 

The proposed South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary was included as an integral part of the proposed Consensus Decision (see Item 3 above). Argentina re-stated the importance of the proposed South Atlantic Sanctuary, and requested that it be retained on the Commission’s agenda for further consideration at forthcoming meetings."

 

Obviously if it were "illegal" for Japan to be whaling all of this data would not be posted openly in the minutes of the last meeting of the IWC.  Also, note they state the "proposed" South Atlantic Whale Sanctuary, therefore it is not officially designated as a sanctuary by the IWC  - yet.  It is also obvious that things are changing fast and whaling by Japan will likely not continue more than a year or two if at all. 

 

Note:  By definition I believe the IWC "moratorium" was intended to be taken as definition #2, i.e. a cooperative agreement as opposed to a "law" due to the international nature of the council and the inability to enforce an actual "law".

moratorium [ˌmɒrəˈtɔːrɪəm]n pl -ria [-rɪə], -riums

1. (Law) a legally authorized postponement of the fulfilment of an obligation

2. an agreed suspension of activity

 

In conclusion, it is my belief that all things do resolve themselves eventually with peaceful, diplomatic solutions.  There is no need to beat people over the head, become abusive, and inhibit the free flow of creative ideas simply to "be right".  Compromise and enabling other cultures to evolve and learn about wildlife and conservation has more beneficial and successful long-term effects than forceful methods of persuasion.  Force only causes resentment and a negative back-lash which causes more problems in the long-run.

Knut was not born in Canada.  His mother was born here approximately 25 years ago....

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knut_%28polar_bear%29

 

"Knut was born at the Berlin Zoo to 20-year-old Tosca, a former circus performer from East Germany who was born in Canada, and her 13-year-old mate Lars, who was originally from the Tierpark Hellabrunn in Munich. After an uncomplicated gestation, Knut and his unnamed brother were born on 5 December 2006. Tosca rejected her cubs for unknown reasons, abandoning them on a rock in the polar bear enclosure.[7] Zoo keepers rescued the cubs by scooping them out of the enclosure with an extended fishing net,[7] but Knut's brother died of an infection four days later. Knut was the first polar bear to have been born and survive in the Berlin Zoo in over 30 years. Only the size of a guinea pig, he spent the first 44 days of his life in an incubator before zoo keeper Thomas Dörflein began raising the cub. "

You and Freediver are being abusive

No Nyack. You are being abusive and childish. You resort to petty insults every time you lose an argument. It is you that harms Greenpeace with your childish antics on their behalf.

He has expressed he thinks I am stupid, ignorant, delusional, etc. And, likewise, I think he is a blubber sucking moron with a strong desire to kill.

The difference is Nyack, I have enough self control to refrain from posting petty insults and I do not see them as a substitute for rational argument. Not so with you.

The second reason it is technically "legal" is because, as Freediver has pointed out it is "International Law", which means outside of virtually declaring war there is no viable method of enforcement.

Not true. International agreements on tuna quotas have been enforced through legal means, with punishment for Japan, without war.

I stand by President Obama-

"As president, I will ensure that the U.S. provides leadership in enforcing international wildlife protection agreements, including strengthening the international moratorium on commercial whaling.


While he does what? Nothing? Feeding you platitudes? Lying to you?

Greenpeace is hardly harmed by my defending whales

So you don't think it reflects poorly on them when their legally illiterate supporters insist whaling is illegal then so quickly resort to childish insults in the face of rational argument?

You have expressed your opinion about me


Nyack, I have expressed my opinion about whether whaling is illegal. It should be obvious to everyone what I think of you personally, but there is no need for me to express it. It would be ungentlemanly of me to do so and I am not going to lower myself to that standard.

I will tell you who is hurting Greenpeace- YOU. One of Greenpeace campaigns. Do you support it?
 
# Save Oceans, Whales and Seafood


Sure. One of the flavours of seafood I am trying to protect is whale. They might actually have some success in protecting the genuinely endangered species if they dropped this nonsense about all whales being endangered. This is why I made the suggestion - to help save Greenpeace's reputation, and with it all the species that actually need saving.
