Five videos released by the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST) show how horrific commercial whaling is in Iceland.

41% of whales hunted in 2022 didn’t die right away, the median time was over 11 minutes and the average was 17 minutes. One suffered for one hour, another whale for two hours. Hrönn Ólína Jörundsdóttir, the head of MAST, called it “unacceptable”.

Please, contact the Prime Minister of Iceland and the Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and tell them to end whaling now. This is ecocide and can not continue this summer.

Whale hunting is not only barbaric, but also an archaic practice that urgently needs to be eradicated. Paradoxically, individuals in the West who consume meat often engage in discussions about the ethics of whaling. This contradiction highlights the irony of condemning the cruelty of whaling while ignoring the brutal lives that animals in factory farms endure from the moment of their conception until their eventual slaughter.

The manner of killing is barbaric and shameful, not only because of the suffering inflicted on a defenceless beautiful creature, but because it characterises the lowest depths of human nature to think that inflicting this harm is necessary or compatible with our intellect.
