People who care about wild species and their habitat will not want to stand by and let this slaughter continue. Please send your comments to Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen at firstname.lastname@example.org and include this clip in your letter.
Campaign leader Rosie Kunneke and crew member Christophe Bondue were handcuffed and removed from the beach, and two crew members have been arrested. They were over two miles away and did not break the law by approaching within a mile of the whales, but the Navy said they had the authority to extend the distance to two miles to justify their arrest.
