Whale slaughter: No way, Norway!

type:Petition
by:Ama Lorenz

Norway is known for an horrific tradition: the annual killing of hundreds of whales. In a few days, the ruthless slaughter will start again. They will hunt the whales down, kill them and then hacking them apart to become animal feed and ingredients in beauty products. This needs to stop! Avaaz is calling for you to say: No Way, Norway!

The efforts of international NGOs already got Germany and the Netherlands to shut their ports to Icelandic whalers, got a major Icelandic whale hunter badboy to shut down his operations, pressured the International Whaling Commission to clamp down on “scientific whaling”, and helped set a path to have 30% of our oceans protected by 2030.

Norway has got away with this mass murder for too long and the government just announced that it’s intending to double its slaughter quotas!Still, they only will make profit with this slaughter if they can export, and they rely on European ports to ship their bloody whale meat overseas. But if enough raise the alarm now we could get governments across Europe to close their ports to Norwegian ships until they agree to end the bloody slaughter of these emotional, intelligent beings!
