Translation....

This email address is in English at the head of the Greenland Authority of Fisheries, Hunting and Agriculture, Ms. Ane Hansen, Greenland's IWC delegate Amalie Jessen, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Danish embassies in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium and England :

Dear Mrs. Hansen

with horror, I learned that Greenland has the year decided arbitrarily a whaling quota for self-sufficiency of the Inuit and thus the decision of the International Whaling Commission will ignore (IWC). This extended to the IWC meeting in July 2012, the rate is not as Greenland to higher number of whales than previously existed. Greenland would therefore ignore the position of the majority of IWC member states that in December 2012 refused a written request by Greenland precisely this higher arbitrary quota. This would not only damage the credibility of Greenland, but also by Denmark, which represents the semi-autonomous region of Greenland yes IWC.

Most whales have not recovered from the previous intensive hunting. Only the force since 1986 commercial whaling ban the IWC could stop this exploitation. Unlike commercial hunting, the IWC in principle allows the hunt for self-sufficiency of Aboriginal and approved regularly sets quotas - but only under clearly defined conditions : 13 The IWC statute (Paragraph ( b) (3) expressly requires that "the meat and products will be used exclusively for local consumption," While in the past Greenland quotas got it requested in 2012 higher rates, without providing the necessary evidence that more whales needed for the Inuit. could instead be shown that whale meat in Greenland becoming ever more commercialized -. with a nationwide sales in supermarkets and in about 70 percent of all tourist restaurants This clearly goes against the provisions of the IWC for their subsistence and stirs doubts Greenland alleged additional needs. According rejected Greenland application for higher rates.

I urge your government to, not from any-refrain authorized whaling - and instead immediately to reach an agreement with the IWC to actually required quotas, ie, either the earlier rate or even a lower number that is the obviously less need adjusted. Without such authorization by the IWC of any future whaling came into Greenland whaling pirates alike.
