Throw a Party, Make a Whale of a Difference
- Dear Enviro,
Here is the latest from Greenpeace's anti-whaling campaign.
>> Register now for a whale-watching house party<<<http://www.partylaunch.com/greenpeace>*
As you read this, Greenpeace ships are in a stand-off with the Japanese
whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean, and we've prevented the whalers
from making a kill
eight consecutive days.
This winter, nearly 1000 whales -- many of them endangered -- may be
killed under the guise of "scientific research". Most of these whales
will end up on grocery store shelves in Japan. Gorton's, the company
that supplies /your/ grocery store with frozen fish fillets, is now a
wholly owned subsidiary of the largest Japanese whaling conglomerate.
That's why Greenpeace is running a campaign
<http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/campaigns/oceans/whales> to get Gorton's
to reel in their parent company and put an end to whaling once and for all.
Our ships will continue to hinder their efforts at sea as long as they
can, but we need your help here at home.
On *January 27th* join friends in your community for a *whale-watching
party*: watch brand-new *video footage* of Greenpeace ships confronting
the Japanese whaling fleet, and join a national *conference call* with
campaigners on the ship.
How will a party help save whales? Because the more people we can
educate about the whaling industry, the safer the whales will be.
We'll send you all the party favors in advance: a *free whale-watching
kit*, with fact sheets, stickers, postcards and video footage fresh from
the high seas. Invite friends and neighbors to watch our Greenpeace
ships confront the Japanese whaling fleet. We'll answer any questions
you have about the campaign, and then we'll make a plan together to get
THOUSANDS of postcards to Gorton's signed at grocery stores across the
Register to host a party today
