The ship brings whale meat caught by the Japanese whaling fleet from this year’s catch in the Southern Ocean. Greenpeace demands illegal whale meat aboard the Panamanian-flagged Oriental Bluebird be refused by customs. Greenpeace provided Japanese officials with documentary evidence of meat being transferred at sea from the whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean. This is a violation of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). Minke whales are listed by CITES as a "species in danger of extinction" and forbids export and import for commercial purposes. Because the Oriental Bluebird does not fly a Japanese flag, offloading the meat in a Japanese port constitutes illegal import. Greenpeace is demanding an end to Japan's whaling programme in the Southern Ocean.Locations:Asia-Japan-TokyoDate:29 Mar, 2008Credit:© Greenpeace / Naomi ToyodaMaximum size:2500px X 1667pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Asian ethnicities-Banners-Greenpeace activists-Harbours-KWCI (GPI)-Oceans (campaign title)-Two people-Whale meat-Whaling-Whaling shipsShoot:Oceans Action Against Whaling in JapanGreenpeace activists greet the arrival of the 'Oriental Bluebird' to Ooi Suisan Futo, Tokyo, with an unwelcome message.
