Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Usually I don’t blog about political issues, but I couldn’t help myself to voice my opinion on the recent decision by the Dominica government, to continue in supporting Japan in international commercial whaling. Yet we still market ourselves as the “Nature Island” and whaling is one off the main attractions.

I know our economy is not the best in the caribbean, but that’s no excuse for our leaders to sell Dominica like it’s some kind off international prostitute. Let’s stop making Dominica the laughing stock of the Caribbean, and lets protect the things that make Dominica the nature island.

The 59th annual meeting of the IWC takes place in Anchorage, Alaska, from 28th to 31st May 2007. In the run up to this meeting, the TV ad will be showing on prime time television in all six Caribbean countries that vote with Japan.

Every Voice Is Important- TAKE ACTION
Here is how you can help, the Caribbean Whale Friends web site, funded by Lord Ashcroft, is asking people to e-mail the government departments of Dominica and the other nations, urging them to oppose commercial whaling.

Email the government departments of Dominica, urging them to oppose commercial whaling.

Whaling serves no purpose other than to cater to rich Japanese who desire to eat whale flesh.

Such an important topic! I hope a lot of people take your suggestion and contact government officials.

BTW, I put your link up on livingdominica.blogspot.com
