Two Greenpeace activists, Junichi Sato and Toru Suzuki, are now awaiting a verdict after a lengthy trial in Japan. The prosecutor has asked for them to be sent to jail for 18 months following their exposure of corruption in Japan's whaling industry. Their case has been supported by Amnesty International, Nobel Laureates including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and celebrities like Bryan Adams and Benicio Del Torro. Known as the 'Tokyo Two', Junichi and Toru have been joined by over half a million voices from around the world since they were arrested 2 years ago. But now they need our help more than ever.
This year, Japan is preparing to host an international meeting for the Convention on Biological Diversity. They have the opportunity to finally reverse course on whaling and show true leadership in marine biodiversity conservation. It's time for justice for the whales and for the Tokyo Two.
