Vikings Star Clive Standen Says 'Real Men Don't Whale'

In a new PSA for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Clive Standen – star of the History Channel’s epic series “Vikings” – urges an end to the horrific annual whale slaughter in the Danish Faroe Islands.

“I may play a merciless Viking on TV but there’s no place for such barbaric behavior in the 21st Century,” says Standen. “Join me in making whaling ancient history once and for all.”

Know as “the Grind,” these hunts annually claim the lives of over 1,000 long-finned endangered Pilot Whales – violently killed by hand by men with knives.

“The ‘Grind’ may have begun centuries ago, but humanity should have evolved over the last 400+ years,” said Sea Shepherd USA Director, Susan Hartland. “Barbaric ritual hunts of whales have no place in a so-called civilized society. Today, these animals are under countless human-induced stressors — pollution, loss of habitat, by-catch, whaling and more. We can’t keep taking them in such numbers and not expect negative consequences. We can’t keep mindlessly killing like primeval barbarians without thinking about what sort of legacy we are leaving for future generations,” she added.

Stop calling vegan food “cruelty-free”

Many vegans proudly proclaim that their food is “cruelty-free” as though issues of justice and injustice begin and end with our use of nonhuman animals.

My Parents Forced Veganism on Me

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
