On July 23 2015, over 250 pilot whales were slaughtered in the Faroe Islands.
111 pilot whales were slaughtered at Bøur killing beach. That same night, another 142 pilot whales were slaughtered at Tórshavn killing beach.
The slaughters were undertaken with the assistance of Danish police and navy personnel, with the blessing of the Danish government.
That day, Sea Shepherd crew chose to STANDUP against the slaughter.
Rosie Kunneke of South Africa, Christophe Bondue of Belgium, Xavier Figarella of Corsica (France), Marianna Baldo of Italy, and Kevin Schiltz of Luxembourg, will appear in court for the ‘crime’ of protecting pilot whales.
The Grind is just as much a Danish issue as it is a Faroese issue.
For the Danes to say this has nothing to do with Denmark is untrue. Danish warships are defending the hunt with two warships including a frigate, helicopters, small boats and hundreds of sailors, at an enormous cost to Danish and European taxpayers.
The Danish Prime Minister has a Faroese wife. The Royal Family says nothing.
And not one word of criticism from a single Danish Member of Parliament.
These facts speak for themselves.
