Photo of the Day [7.28.10]

Today’s photo was taken by Tom Crowley. EIA did an investigation in early 2010 into the grocerystore chain FamilyMart, and uncovered that FamilyMart plays a major role in sustaining the Government of Japan’s refusal to abide by the moratorium on commercial hunting of whales. FamilyMart sells canned whale meat in 25% of stores EIA surveyed, and is potentially a major distributor and seller of canned whale meat.  As the third largest convenience store in Japan, FamilyMart helps to sustain the whale hunting industry and the slaughter of protected whale species.
