Judges at the highest United Nations court have ordered Japan to halt whaling in the Antarctic, rejecting the country's long-held argument that the catch was for scientific purposes and not primarily for human consumption.

Environmental groups had hoped that ruling would lead to an end to all whaling, however, Japan says it is ramping up efforts to resume commercial whaling. 

We want to know what your message to Japan is. What are you thoughts on the whaling programme?

Do you have a message for them about why they shouldn't take up their hunts in other areas of the world?

Or maybe you have a different opinion on the whole issue?
