In a showdown with Japan over the driftnet issue after Japan
produced it's propaganda film "The Truth about Driftnetting",
Earthtrust produced a followup video titled Closing the Curtains
of Death and prepared the
world's most comprehensive study of the nature, extent, and effects
of driftnet fishing. Earthtrust fielded an expert international
team to take materials to virtually all U.N. members; Sue White,
Don White, Art van Remundt, Linda Paul, Jim Logan, and John Lindelow.
Despite Japan's strident accusations against Earthtrust as the
leading organization pushing for a ban, the Earthtrust push succeeded;
and even Japan signed the historic moratorium.
