A frank discussion about the consequences of Merkel's open borders on Denmark, with a number of references to the Australian system for processing refugees. Note, however, that refugees do not usually achieve permanent resettlement in Europe, whereas they usually do in Australia. When European governments talk about taking in refugees, they are talking about a temporary situation. In this interview Oksana Boyko of RT asks Ft. Anders Vistisen about the Danish plan to confiscate valuables from refugee applicants to pay for their costs and how many more refugees can Denmark accept. Why is Denmark moving refugees to rural camps? Won't that detract from their integration?
Fourteen activists from the hardline animal rights group Sea Shepherd, including an Australian, were arrested in Denmark’s Faroe Islands while trying to halt a dolphin "hunt".
Rather than a "hunt", the animals were help captive and were callously slaughtered without escape. They were arrested on the island of Sandoy while attempting to save a pod of 33 pilot whales — members of the dolphin family — which were being driven toward shore to be slaughtered. Islanders drive pilot whales and other dolphins into shallow bays, where the animals are butchered to the cheers of locals watching from shore. This is justified coldly as "tradition"!
Among them was Krystal Keynes, from Western Australia.
Faroese whalers support the atrocity of mass killings of whales by claiming that whaling in the Faroes stretches back to the earliest Norse settlements more than 1,000 years ago, and hunts date to at least the 16th century. The method of slaughter involves the whales being forced into a bay by flotillas of small boats before being hacked to death with hooks and knives! Many locals defend the hunt as a cultural right, but animal rights campaigners have denounced it as a "brutal and archaic mass slaughter".
Sea Shepherd has denounced the hunt as brutal and archaic, and this year brought celebrities to the North Atlantic islands to cast a spotlight on the practice.
