5. What do you think faroese people should do about Sea Shepherd ..? Should we do like other - and just ban them ..?
It is simple. This is your country. You have made it clear Sea Shepherd is not welcome there. What in God's name gives a bunch of American, British, Australian and Europeans the right to come to your country and try and tell you how to live your lives. Flat out you should ban them from entering.
6. How come - nobody from Sea Shepherd really wants to hear OUR side of the story ..?
They don't want your side of the Story because they are afraid of the facts coming out. These people do little or nothing to stop the industrial factory farming of cattle which are killed very brutally compared to the Harvest of Pilot Whales which live freely and are killed more humanely to provide food and sustenance to the Faroese people who being that they live on remote islands will rely on the sea as a source of food. I mentioned before their activists have too much an emotional investment in the lies told by the likes of Watson and Hammerstedt that they want anyone to oppose them mainly because if there is no Campaign theres no TV show and no TV show means no money or donations. All of their arguments such as the EU law one can be destroyed in one fell swoop if they ever debated anyone from the Faroes. In short they are scared to face you themselves.
7. Do they talk about Sea Shepherd and what SS is doing to Faroe Islands ..? What do local scottish people think about sitution that Faroe Islands is in ..?
SS is not too well known in Scotland on the mainland at least. In Orkney and Shetland because they are closer to the Faroes they have more an understanding of it and of course these islands rely on the sea as a primary food source like the Faroese do. The opinion from those who do know is mixed and the general opinion I have gotten is that it's none of our business what the Faroes get up to. They are not harming our way of life so we just think you should get on with your lives. You dont issue with us shooting Grouse in the Highlands every year so why should we take issue with you harvesting a few hundred pilot whales every year.
8. Did you ever talk to Paul Watson yourself or did anyone ..?
I had telephone interview with Watson once for a blog but that was the only time. The man is interpol so is keeping a low profile but he'll be caught one day and I look forward to seeing him up infront of a judge.
I wish to thank Oluf Marchall for this interview and wish him all the best. You are a true hero in my book. Thanks for everything, Oluf and keep up the good work in Scotland. ATB from Faroe Islands and be sure to visit us sometime.
