The Prime Minister of the Faroes

Dear Madam,dear Sir,

 

I would ask you to view the following images. They depict the grisly – and as I understand – annual slaughter of pilot whales on the coast of the autonomous region of Dinamarca.

We in Europe get so upset about the massacre of dolphins the Japanese revel in each year – when under our very nose the same happens practically on our doorstep.

I once saw a documentary about the Faroers and the not-EU conforming slaughter (throat cut without prior stunning) of sheep, and residents of the community documented expressed their relief at not being part of the EU .. because that would mean they could no longer perform this particular type of slaughter legally – which, after all, they see as a tradition … naturally one, like so many traditions - and this whale massacre is no exception there – it is nothing the animals in question would miss if it were given up – at long last in the "enlightened" 21st century (which some apparently still confuse with the Middle Ages).


I remain committed to a boycott of Faeroe tourism until all whaling activity ceases in this North Sea Danish Protectorate. Plainly, the massacre of
forcibly trapped whales is cruel.

I cannot tour or otherwise support any society that condones senseless violence against animals.

I cannot stress strongly enough the absolute barbarity of this "hunt".

It's mere existence, that is, the fact that it is accepted and obviously permitted by yourself and your government, constitutes a very ugly smirch on the Faroers as a whole.

Needless to say really – this does not motivate me to ever visit the Faroers – I would not willingly invest into the next such show of low and wholly unacceptable Human behaviour towards ultimately defenseless animals.

It is disgusting in the extreme.

 I urge government officials to legally shield wildlife from all forms of abuse, including the slaughter of whales for sport.

 

Sincerely,
