More than 21,000 people in South Africa joined Greenpeace over the last few days in putting pressure on the South African government not to accept a cargo ship from Iceland carrying 2,000 tons of fin whale meat, SABC reports. 

The ship, en route to Japan, had planned to refuel at the port of Durban but skipped the port in light of the protest.

Greenpeace is asking the South African government to put pressure on other African port cities not to accept the ship.
