The Greens today called on the Australian government to immediately initiate legal action against Japan on whaling.
"The diplomatic approach has spectacularly failed. It is time for real action," said Senator Rachel Siewert, Australian Greens spokesperson on whaling.
"The Australian Government has not saved any whales with the so called diplomatic approach, we need a new approach."
"International legal experts say there is a good case to take legal action on several fronts."
