A ban against whaling has been in place for the past 24 years, dramatically reducing the numbers of whales killed. However, today in Agadir, Morocco the International Whaling Commission (IWC) will begin the process of voting on whether to lift the ban and potentially open the floodgates to whaling across the globe once again.
To raise awareness of this the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society created this graphic film which featured model, Alice Dellal, narration from actor Christopher Eccleston and music from The Horrors.
The aim of the protest is to directly challenge the proposed lifting of the whaling ban and potentially save thousands of whales from being needlessly slaughtered in the future.
Each e-protest will be sent directly to the most high profile supporters in favour of the plan to lift the ban, which include Barack Obama and the Prime Minister of New Zealand.
