Protest Norway Killing Whales - Every Wednesday

category dublin | animal rights | news report author Wednesday November 07, 2007 14:12author by John Carmody - Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN)author email arancampaigns at eircom dot netauthor address ARAN, Po Box 722, Kildare, Irelandauthor phone 0876275579 Report this post to the editors

What was Norway doing this summer when we were on holidays? Norway was killing whales! What was doing Norway when people were whalewatching? Norway was killing whales!


Every year, Norway announces that it will open its controversial commercial whaling season (3 months starting in May), and every year it increases its self appointed quota of Minke whales that it will slaughter for no good reason. But anyway, what good reasons could one have to kill these magnificent, intelligent creatures?

Norway is proud of killing whales. It claims that it’s part of their culture and that whaling is
practised on a small scale. But since the 1986 international whaling ban, Norway has killed 8,106 whales, and Norway’s Government has proudly announced that it has caught and killed 592 whales in the 2007 whaling season.

They also claim that the whales are a threat to fishstocks. Once again, their argument is not valid as human over-fishing is to blame for dwindling stocks, and this in turn is a threat to whales and the entire marine ecosystem.

So why is norway killing whales? For money, of course. The real goal of Norway’s whalers is to export to Japan where whale meat has become a luxuary food on the japanese market that can retail at 80£ per pound.


Demo every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm outside the norwegian embassy.

Their Nordic cousins in Iceland are resuming whaling this month.

See Iceland Review:


The attitude to whaling,and indeed to the sea, is VERY different to Ireland's,to put it mildly.
