Greetings citizens of the world. We are Anonymous.
Today, Iceland’s main reason for whaling is to send meat to another whaling country, Japan, who face restrictions under the International Whaling Commission’s ruling. It is now known that only roughly 20% of any whale is used, while 80% is discarded as waste. When the IWC placed a ban on commercial whaling in 1986, Iceland removed themselves from the commission, which left them in a position to continue as the ‘ban’ no longer applied to them.
A Endangered Fin Whales and Minke Whales are slaughtered with explosive harpoons.
Taking 30+ mins to die.
We at OpWhales do not aim our protest at the Icelandic people. We aim our protest at the Icelandic Government who allows the Company Hvalur to continue with this horrific practice which only benefits the company itself, not the people. We ask the Icelandic people to speak out against their Government’s grant on whaling by the Hvalur company, and rather promote the benefits of whale watching and tours – an extremely lucrative industry in this most beautiful part of the world.
Anonymous has already sent warnings to show the seriousness of this matter, having taken down numerous websites in Iceland. Our efforts were noted by media worldwide.
