This Christmas TV advert by Iceland and Greenpeace was banned as it was too political.

It shows the destruction of the rain forest to make palm oil and features a orangutan

4. And the store is where?

Last I remember, "countries" didn't set policy or kill whales, people do. The same ones who shop at, own, grocery stores. The "store" didn't ban the ad, the management did. The same management that is made of people who vote for the government, that sets the policy that allows people to kill the whales.
So I'm not sure what your point is. Do you find the killing of whales by an industrialized society using industrialized killing machines, that is not taking them for sustenance but is hoping to sell them to the Japanese, an acceptable practice?
