Model protested against whaling
Lisa B. and Brian Blessed, actor known from movies like «Hamlet» and «Much ado for nothing», participated in a protest outside Norways embassy in London together with several other animal rights activists. The protest against Norwegian whaling was proclaimed with slogans and posters, in addition to a model of a bloody harpoon, placed on the sidewalk in front of the embassy.
«The Norwegians have got their own oil, they farm, they don't need this, they are completely self-sufficient and very prosperous,» Blessed said to BBC News Online. «Why in Hell's name do they want to kill whales? Whales are close to us - they have mothers and babies.»
Iceland decided last year to resume whaling in order to study «the whales influence on the seas eco system».
Norwegian authorities have issued a quota of 670 minke whale during a season which started Tuesday and lasts to August 31. The opening of the whaling season is always met with laud protests from animal rights activists.
