Exclamation The Ritual Slaughter Of Dolphins - A Plea To All Avalonians

My Friends,

I am taking the liberty to address you with a rather unusual here, but pressing request.

A couple of days ago, the following was brought to my attention:

It appeared, that the ritual slaughter of dolphins is being planned this November, in the Faroe Islands.

See it here: Stop The Bloody Tradition Of The Faroe Islands

Briefly: "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 absolutely unacceptable in the 21.th century in the face of the massive damages of the civilization." [...]


http://www.thepetitionsite.com/petition/557550806


The sight of this slaughter being happily executed by those fellow humans, who choose to express their 'manhood' by so brutally killing one of the most innocent, harmless and human-friendly creatures of this planet deeply touched me.
I just can not understand it.

I have been contacting friends and soul brothers and sisters, as here, at this forum; have alerted the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, GreenPeace International, Humane Society USA and, locally, the Dutch green and environment-friendly political parties and groups - two of which, the Dutch socialist party and their green partners, called 'GroenLinks', have taken the case to the Dutch Parliament - but, of course, still more needs to be done.

We all know, how desperately slow our institutions work and time is alas running out, for this ritual is scheduled for November.


Do please help stop this barbaric practice; support the petition, give the word forward, inform friends and acquaintances, involve your networks, rally each and all!


Dolphins do not deserve such a treatment from mankind; those are definitely not the terms of our natural covenant with them.


Ascension, truly, begins at home.



Thank you all,

Namaste.

Boys to men huh! It would take a much bigger individual to stand up and say stop this slaughter then to participate in what looks like a street gang of 10 on 1 beating someone to a pulp. As of today until this stops I am boycotting anything that comes from Denmark. Signed!

Greetings dear Avalonians,

Thanks for your compassion; it is indeed hard to remain indifferent in the face of such acts.
Your warm words are appreciated, Dolphin and all the others, but this is really the least one could do for our companions, the Dolphins.

The word is spreading throughout the whole world and the petition is steadily growing - also thanks to your participation - but still much more needs to be done, of course.

Those who wish could take further steps.

Could you please write, as politely and neutral-positively as possible - in order to avoid achieving precisely the opposite reaction by the recipients: a matter of average human psychology, id est, ego... - to the following officials and institutions?

Do please write politely, once again, to the danish ambassador to your country/to other nations, urge her/him to speak out against this ritual killing of dolphins and pilot whales.


Here is a model i am using, but, of course, you should feel free to formulate your own letter - for, personal input, diversity might also have more impact.

Subject: The Ritual slaughter of Dolphins - Appeal to Excellency the Prime Minister



Excellency,

I hereby would like to submit to your consideration the following information and urgent request.

I recently came across this petition, calling for the stop of the tradition of killing dolphins and pilot whales in the Faroe Islands:

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 absolutely unacceptable in the 21.th century in the face of the massive damages of the civilization." [...]

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/petition/557550806



Excellency,

I believe, we are many around the world to consider dolphins and pilot whales as the most innocent, harmless and human-friendly creatures of this planet.
They certainly do not deserve such a treatment from us, humans.
Besides, studies have comprehensively demonstrated, that:

- The hunts cause both physical and psychological suffering to the whales and dolphins;
- The hunts are no longer necessary to provide food to the islanders;
- A New (2008) research undertaken by the Environmental Medicine section of Syddansk University shows that environmental toxins in pilot whale meat make it unsafe to eat and demonstrates clear links between consumption of pilot whale meat and incidence of Parkinson's disease; whaling is damaging to both whales and people;
- The gruesome spectacle of the hunts is extremely disturbing to the vast majority of the international community - many people coming to the Faroes do so to enjoy the natural environment and wildlife. Many would-be tourists may be discouraged from visiting the Faroes, not wishing to risk witnessing a whale and/or dolphin hunt.
These hunts dramatically tarnish the Faroes' image as a place to enjoy peace and nature.



Could you please use all your wisdom and authority to help bring this tradition to an end?


Thank you for your consideration.


Best regards."




Thank you all,


Namaste.

I do so appreciate you putting out this information. NPR had a report about it the other day. It is a shame and it breaks my heart. I am a devoted animal lover and spreading the word is a good thing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for calling awareness to this ...

Dear Co-workers,

It is with a tremendous neutral-positive joy, that i inform you, that the Dutch party for animals (Partij Voor de Dieren) is personally advocating the case.

The other good news is, that the petition is receiving worldwide reactions.
As to this hour, some 4.407 fellow humans have come forward - and the numbers of signatures change literally by the hour!


I would like now to share the following video with those among you, who are blessed with iron nerves.
It is graphic and utterly gruesome - i am not really on the 'sensible side', but it took me quite some effort to go through it.

May wisdom and humaneness some day prevail.


Thanks for your compassion.

Namaste.

There is nothing more sad, and pathethic, then the human logic that dictates we must make others suffer in order to become accepted by our peers as men.

I say **** our peers. Old world savages, the day will come when they will be the dolphin.

Dolphins have helped people countless numbers of times. They have saved them from the tides, the rocks and from sharks. They have love for us, and this is what people do to them?

Dolphins mourn the loss of their kind much like we do with family. When will these boys learn that being a man is about respecting all life as equal, and doing unto others as they would have done unto themselves.

Denmark Dolphin & Whale Slaughter

Readers, this is a copy of a email that a fellow reader of this site sent to the Danish Embassy in his country regarding the Dolphin and Whale Slaughter in the Faroe Islands (a part of Denmark). With Rodin's permission I am printing the email exchange here. I want to note that the "facts" given in the Danish response are almost exactly what the Japanese say to support their whaling. The slaughter of dolphins and whales is unnecessary, and considering their high intelligence level, wrong. Please email the Faroe Islands authorities and also the Danish authorities (the Embassy in the nation where you live). If sufficient pressure is put on them we can force an end to this slaughter. Stirling

Dear Lord Stirling,
In accordance with your link about the butchering of the whales on the Faroe Islands, I sent a mail to the Danish Embassy in my country. Hereby you'll find the answer. I love to hear what you think about this.
Kind regards,
Rodin

Concerning protest about catching of pilot whales in the Faroe Islands

The Royal Danish Embassy has received your e-mail where you express your feelings caused by mail you have received which has contained selected pictures from the catching of pilot whales in the Faroe Islands. The mail may have been accompanied by inflammatory comments, and ludicrous assertions, such as the hunt being some sort of ‘adulthood ritual’.

We take note of the fact that you have found the above mentioned pictures, and the accompanying text, disturbing. However, before passing any judgment one will need to supplement a possibly negative aesthetic first hand impression, and inaccurate information received, with considerations of the real facts of the matter as well as of a number of issues of principle.

Facts about the Faroese pilot whale drive fishery can be obtained from the homepage www.whaling.fo. The facts include the following:

· The purpose of the catch is to produce food,
· The hunt is regulated by the authorities,
· The catch is biologically sustainable,
· The authorities take the animal welfare aspect of the hunt seriously.

The Faroe Islands have autonomy within the Kingdom of Denmark. The islands are not included in Denmark’s membership of the European Union. Affairs regarding industry, agriculture, the environment, fishing and whaling, are subject to Faroese autonomy.

If you, after having acquainted yourself with the facts of the matter, should wish to address the Faroese authorities regarding pilot whaling, the relevant e-mail addresses of the Faroese Government are mfa@mfa.fo and fisk@fisk.fo;
