Stop whale slaughter on Faroe Islands


!! STOP THE CRUEL AND OUTDATED "GRINDADRÁP" !! --- !! Stop den grusomme og forældede Grindadráp !!

It's called a tradition. They chase them with boats, ships, harpoons and knives. Every year there are hundreds of whales and dolphins supposed to die because the Faroese hunters and people don't want to abandon the cruel and bloody slaughter, called "GRINDADRÁP" or "THE GRIND".

Once up on a time they did the hunt to survive - for meat and oil. But nowadays, especially in face of the good situation at the Faroe Islands, it's just a cruel and useless slaughter.

People of Denmark, Faroe Islands, and wherever you are living: Please sign this petition to set a sign to the mighty ones in København (Copenhagen) and Tórshavn.

Din kongelige majestæt, ærede ministre, (Your Royal Majesty, honorable Ministers)

Denmark is a civilized, progressive, beautiful and popular country. Do not let the reputation of your country be tainted by backward, rude, senseless and cruel traditions.

The time has come to put an end to the senseless murder. Stop Grindadráp, sign now.

Please sign this petition to stop this barbaric procedure. It is indispensable to stop this killing. Whales are neither food nor raw materials - nor is it morally justifiable to hunt them for fun. It is a crime against nature.

Thank you for your support.

In the name of all signers.

Hamburg, 20 Aug 2017 (aktiv bis 19 Aug 2018)

Why people sign

Because it’s painful to be aware of this brutality.

Das ist Mord.

Ich bin gegen jeden blutrünstigen Spass, der sich gegen Lebewesen richtet

Weil ich ein Mensch bin und Tiere achte!

Es liegt in unserer Verantwortung, die letzten Wale dieser Welt zu schützen! Wir müssen endlich umdenken und Menschen, Tiere und unseren Planeten respektieren!
