Don't fail the Pilot Whales (Dolphins) of the Faroe Islands!

Petition start: August 29th - 2014

33 Whales has already been slaughtered at this years Pilot Whale slaughter at the Faroe Islands.
This "tradition" goes back as long as the islands has been inhabited but in present time the declining Whale population of the Globe can no longer bear these habitual slaughters here there and everywhere and thus it has turned into unsustainable and cruel killings - also of Dolphins and other Marine Mammals!
Last year it was revealed that all the meat was unfit for consumption, due to all the stress hormones in the mammals! Why do it?

As an average Dane I believe that I speak for the majority of the Danish population when I point out that we do not feel connected to the people of The Faroe Islands. We do not share the same traditions nor language.The people of the faroe Islands have also long term had autonomy and almost total independency from Denmark. Strangely the Danish nation still provides these islands with large subsidies. I absolutely do not want to have my tax money spent this way!

Denmark is a nation in the European Union - the EU does NOT permit whaling (for that's exactly what this barbaric "tradition" is).

Why don't we cut the last ties to the Faroe Islanders? Imperialism is outdated.

We, the undersigned citizens of the World, hereby call out to the Danish government to withdraw the support of the Danish navy to these killings and to use the money otherwise spent on this absurdity in a more sustainable way to protect wildlife and not destroy it.

To the Danish government in session.
