Stop the bloody tradition of the Faroe Islands

This petition has been created to target to the horrible bloody practice, which is still taking place in the heart of the European Union and which belongs to the middle ages but not to the modern society. Every November inhabitants of Faroe Islands* come to the sea to teach their sons to kill. The subject of this millennium tradition, aimed to make men out of boys, are confiding and very human-friendly dolphins - 1500 animal units every year. We feel confident, that such cruelty towards the fauna is absolutly unacceptable in the 21.th century in the face of the massive damages of the civilization.  The policy of European Union has ever been humane towards the environment and dumb animals. That is why we kindly invoke you to oppose the tradition that is so blood curdling for modern human being.

* Faroe Islands are the autonomy within the Kingdom of Denmark, is a part of Denmark, but has the right to decide on almost every internal and external case since 1948.Denmark retains the control and responsibility for the external policyand annually ensures the provision of financial resources to the economy of Islands.

Dear Sirs,



Every November inhabitants of Faroe Islands come to the sea to teach their sons to kill. The subject of this millennium tradition, aimed to make men out of boys, are confiding dolphins - 1500 animal units every year. It is customary to go to the butchery by whole families, even with little children. Fathers and brothers proudly say that some day they become as brave as they are.



The dolphins are killed with the special cruelty - engaged by harpoon sand then are cut alive by pieces. One third of animal are pregnant females. They start to bear because of awful tortures - then their stomachs are ripped up to kill both mother and child.



Multiple claims of citizens and relevant organizations to the queen of Denmark to stop it gave no result. The policy of European Union has ever been humane towards the environment and dumb animals. That is why we kindly invoke you to oppose the tradition that is so blood curdling for modern human being.


We thank you in the name of the all civilized world for taking time to read this petition!
