Help one brave woman stop the blood-thirsty millionaire

A message from Avaaz:

It’s sickening. They shot her with an exploding harpoon, hacked the foetus out of her, and trashed it. She was just one of the 238 endangered fin whales, millionaire Kristjan Loftsson was allowed to kill this year.

Fin whales are awe-inspiring — capable of communicating through song, feeling love and deep emotional suffering. Loftsson is the last man on the planet still slaughtering these gentle giants – often while they’re pregnant.

But one brave woman can stop him.

Right now, Iceland’s new Green Prime Minister is considering ending whaling, but she could still face a mountain of backlash. It’s up to us to show her the whole world stands with her!

Now is the moment. Sign the urgent petition and share it everywhere:

Stop the blood-thirsty millionaire

Scientists recently discovered cells in whales’ brain that process complex emotions like romance and grief! These were thought to exist only in humans and great apes, but whales have three times more of them than humans!

Millions of tourists flock to the country every year for its natural beauty and to watch whales playing in the wild. But visitors are left in shock when they see one of Loftsson’s ships floating in bloody water, hauling a carcass.

Just tell them to look somewhere else. They can just turn around and look the other way.” he says. Let’s show him that we won’t turn a blind eye to this massacre!

With the new Prime Minister now reviewing the whaling policy, this is our opportunity to stop him – but we need to move fast. Add your name and share everywhere – when we make it massive, Avaaz will poll the shifting public opinion in Iceland and expose this horror to Iceland’s booming tourist industry:

Stop the blood-thirsty millionaire

Our movement has gone up against Loftsson’s fleet before. When one of his whale shipments tried docking in the Netherlands, we pushed Dutch authorities to close their ports, and then Avaazers in Germany helped block ports there too! Now we have our best chance to stop his slaughter, for good.

With hope,

Spyro, Rewan, Danny, Alice, Diego, Sobaika and the rest of the Avaaz team
