Urgent:  International Whaling Commission Vote - Denmark

At the current time, International Whale Commission meeting in Portugal, Denmark has asked for Greenland to hunt and kill 50 humpback whales. Sweden is supporting their request. Fifty more whales to slaughter!! Isn’t it enough that they keep beaching themselves en masse, from the sonic torture in their habitats and other alterations man is rendering to their eco-sytems?

My friend, Hardy Jones, of Bluevoice.org is calling for help. We need immense social outcry to stop Denmark (and the countries that will follow their lead!) from killing these great and beautiful creatures. Humpbacks are slow swimmers, easy to hunt. Their populations are just rebuilding after remorseless hunting. The targeted humpbacks are well known and loved by populations along the eastern seaboard of the United States and Canada and admired and respected by people around the world.
He is asking you to please take action by writing to this misguided ‘leader’ URGENTLY and expressing your absolute protest against killing any more whales:

ACTION TO TAKE:
Email the Prime Minister of Denmark. This must be done from your own email account - not just a click from BV which will be filtered. Below is the email address and sample letter - you can add your own personal comments which make the email more effective.

Email to Denmark's Prime Minister (address below)

I protest in the strongest terms Denmark's support of the slaughter of fifty humpbacks from the Northeast Atlantic stock. Humpbacks are loved and respected by many around the world. Your actions are unthinkable. When making travel plans I shall remember your efforts to kill these highly intelligent, social and endangered animals and I will do everything in my power to help others, who are still unaware of your intentions, to join my protest against this inhumane and unnecessary slaughter.

Your signature


Email for the Danish Prime Minister: stm@stm.dk
(You must cut and paste this address) - please do not simply forward it to him as it will have far less impact.

Beloved lightworkers, we have to do something immense. Global and unprecedented. We have to shout this out to everyone we know, flooding this Prime Minister of Denmark with emails and letters from around the world. Write to your governments as well – write your representatives, media...anyone you can think of to help save these innocent, joyous creatures.

Please care.

These gorgeous beings can’t defend themselves against this ruthless killing. Only we, the ‘awakening’ human beings of this planet, can help them live and prosper.
