Greenpeace campaigners use whale and dolphin carcasses to make their point!

Greenpeace campaigners have staged a dramatic protest in Germany laying the carcasses of 17 dead whales and dolphins at the landmark Brandenburg Gate.

The demonstration is aimed at persuading countries to resist increasing pressure for a resumption of commercial whaling.

Next week, the International Whaling Commission holds a meeting in Anchorage, Alaska, where Japan will be pushing for the moratorium on commercial whaling to be overturned.

Germany holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, which supports the IWC moratorium.
