Hollywood’s 007 star Pierce Brosnan who is campaigning against whale hunting has reminded US President Barack Obama of his promises which he made during his presidential campaign. During his presidential campaign, Obama vowed to save the marine life.
 
Brosnan, 57 who has launched a new PSA (Public Service Announcement) for the International Fund for Animal Welfare has specifically questioned Obama administration about its whaling policies. According to the PSA, if such policies are implemented, they would allow Japan, Norway, Iceland the power to kill whales.
 
Pierce Brosnan said, "As a candidate, you promised to end illegal whaling, and we applauded your leadership, but recent reports reveal your administration supports an international proposal, which gives Japan, Iceland and Norway the license to kill whales.”
 
Brosnan has also urged the US government to adapt the non-tolerance policy and   to take a firm stand against whale hunting in international waters.
 
"They (US government) seem to be in favour of allowing Japan and Norway to go out and hunt whales again. It means they can go out there and start killing whales. It's in moratorium so it's not determined how many they can kill," the actor said.
 
"Normally, there's no justification for killing these creatures. Scientifically, there's no justification. So if you want to do something about stopping the possible slaughter of whales, then you have to pick up the phone and call The White House," he added.
