is gathering 10 signatures to
End The Faroe Islands Whale/Dolphin Killing Festival
A few years ago a friend of mine sailed to the Faroes. The pictures he brought back of terrified pods of whales driven into the harbours by boats and held there with no chance of escape along with men up to their chests in blood coloured sea water and the sight of the metal "gaffs" used to "kill the whales outright" (if you're lucky, I guess) was enough to turn any right minded person's stomach. Whilst I appreciate that this is something that has been done for generations and is now part of the culture, the reality is that the need for this "food source" no longer exists with modern imports and air freight.
Please sign the petition. It might just make the difference that saves the future generations of whales from this horrific death.
