I have been there when this occured, and it is gut-wrenching.
It would be more fruitful though to ask the Prime Minister to ask his people to stop the practice, rather than take away what they regards as an important aspect of their cultural identity, but to give up this practice for the sake of embracing a newer identity resonant and empathetic with much of the rest of the world. Would he rather look back 20 years hence and be able to say he did everything he could to stop this practice,...

so you think that a Prime Minister, elected by the people, is just going to give up his peoples culture just like that just because of the wish of foreigners? do you think he would be reelected after doing something like that?

What a shame to country considered civilized? this video contains all kind of brutality, inhumanity and cruelty of man against animal.this massacre is unacceptable and must be halt right away and should hold those heartless monsters responsible.a new law must be enacted as soon as possible protect those poor beautiful animal and ensure welfare to them. Denmark will remain uncivilized and backward country till the situation is corrected.What a shame indeed.

when I go to the Faroe Islands, which I am planning to do, I really hope that I will experience a whale hunt and be with them and pull the ropes, or maybe even using the grindaknivur knives.

You wont get to do the actual killing, but your help with the ropes would be appreciated. You might even be part of the herding, if you're lucky enough to catch a boat.

And now both of you sound like bloody morons. And Steinar --from the looks of you mate, you are compensating for a teeeeny weeeny organ ( and I don't mean a musical one). Congratulations and way to go.

How so?

And don't you find it a tad silly to tell us that we sound like morons, yet in the same breath you make this pathetic attempt to insult me by invoking my manhood or lack thereof?

Faroe Islanders are inbred morons who know that whale and dolphin meat is unfit for human consumption., yet they kill them, and eat them anyway. Hope that Faroe Islanders are a dying breed who will one day become extinct very soon.

That's ok Magnus, say anything you want to I have heard it all... It is not the Nation or the land I hate, not even good individuals of any race or nation, but the cruelty and murder. My planet runs with the blood of billions of animals murdered every day. To kill whales is a terrible crime so don't expect us to sit back and let you do it.

you said that you hope the Faroe Islanders "breed" will go extinct, by that you are saying that you hate all their individuals

and how is killing whales a worse crime than killing other animals? like how people kill cows and pigs in the USA? where is all the international outrage and boycotts towards the USA for that?

This is barbarism back in the dark ages! Stop this repulsive nonsensical cruelty to these innocent intelligent animals. I find it disgusting that the government of these islands under Danish Government could sanction such brutal killing spree by sickening gangs of ruthless thugs. What does Denmark really stand for if this large scale atrocity is allowed in the name of fun. You must be a "blood thirsty" nation if you find this appealing! Where are your animal welfare laws. Where is your...

What does Denmark really stand for if this large scale atrocity is allowed in the name of fun. You must be a "blood thirsty" nation if you find this appealing! Where are your animal welfare laws. Where is your dignity, decency as a developed nation? There is no excuse for this annual senseless killing of innocent victims. How would you like if someone did this to your children and families?
