World Shame

It is nothing about tourism nor Asia and it is far away from my current position. However I was so shock once I received a forwarded mail from my working colleague with her signature. Then I straightaway forwarded to Travel Myanmar Google Group which I moderate and as well as to all my friends. "World Shame", I did not even change the subject line of the mail and now post on my owned blog with sadness in away with paranoid to all those cruel people.

It is about killing pilot whales on the beach on the Island of Faroese, Denmark. The people there have been practiced Whaling since AD 1584. There are around 950 Long-finned Pilot Whales are killed each and every year in summer time. They surround the whales with boats and drive them to the beach. Those wild people consider this horrible and cruel slaughtering to the innocent and highly intelligent whales as their important part of culture and history. Is it culture?

The people from Faroese treat the hunt as their festive occasion. Children are often given a day off school. According to Faroese legislation it is also permitted to hunt certain species of small cetaceans other than pilot whales. These include: Bottlenose dolphin; Atlantic white-beaked dolphin; Atlantic white-sided dolphin; and Harbour porpoise (There are also specific regulations for the hunting of harbour porpoise. Harbour porpoises are killed with shotguns).

Please see below forwarded mail with photos :-(

This is horrible and sad, but nevertheless needs to be addressed.

Denmark is a big shame The sea is stained in red and in the mean while its not because of the climate effects of nature.
??? ???????

It's because of the cruelty that the human beings (civilised human) kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins.
??? ???????

This happens every year in Feroe iland in Denmark. In this slaughter the main participants are young teens. WHY? To show that they are adults and mature.... BULLLLsh
??? ???????

In this big celebration, nothing is missing for the fun. Everyone is participating in one way or the other, killing or looking at the cruelty "supporting like a spectator"
??? ???????
Is it necessary to mention that the dolphin calderon, like all the other species of dolphins, it's near instinction and they get near men to play and interact. In a way of PURE friendship
??? ???????

??? ???????

They don't die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hocks. And at that time the dolphins produce a grim extremely compatible with the cry of a new born child.
??? ???????

But he suffers and there's no compassion till this sweet being slowly dies in its own blood
??? ???????

??? ???????
Its enough! We will send this mail until this email arrives in any association defending the animals, we won't only read. That would make us accomplices, viewers.
??? ???????

Take care of the world, it is your home!

In order for any global petition to be taken seriously by the Faroe Islands, it has to be both FACTUALLY and LINGUISTICALLY CORRECT.
This petiton (posted above) is neither.
However, on my blog [ ] I've researched and highlighted the mistakes.
If you are going to continue circulating this petition, PLEASE correct it. Otherwise you will have NO hope of persuading anyone to stop the slaughter.
Petitions only stand a chance of success if they are correct and make sense. good luck!
