Shamed whale meat rejected by ports and cargo companies is returned to Iceland

Unwanted whale meat arrived back in Iceland overnight after ports and cargo companies refused to play a part in its shameful passage to Japan. As the cargo vessel Pioneer Bay approached Reykjavik harbour it was joined by two whale watching vessels with Icelandic supporters of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) on board. They carried a large banner asking “What’s the point?” of Icelandic whaling.  They also held up large placards depicting pointing hands.

Boote "begrüßen" das zurückgeschickte Walfleisch

Gestern morgen kehrte eine umstrittene Lieferung mit Walfleisch wieder nach Island zurück. Es war von Reykjavik nach Rotterdam und von dort nach Hamburg gegangen. Nach heftigen Protesten verweigerte in Hamburg die Reederei den Weitertransport nach Japan und schickte das als gefrorener Fisch deklarierte Walfleisch wieder zurück an den Absender.
