Survey: Majority of Japananese oppose whaling

Most Japanese oppose whaling, according to a Greenpeace survey released Friday ahead of an International Whaling Commission meeting:

Sixty-nine percent of respondents to the whaling survey, conducted by the Nippon Research Center, said they oppose whaling in high seas, according to Greenpeace, which commissioned the report.

About 25 percent of respondents think whaling should be banned in both the high seas and Japanese territorial waters, the survey revealed.

Mainichi has more details here and BBC also had a good article on the whaling debate within Japan.

Update: Japan, joined by Norway, Denmark and a group of other nations have won a controversial vote to resume commercial whaling on Monday, according to BBC.
