There are 1,428 reasons not to see "No Time to Die".

The real villains of the current James Bond thriller are the producers. They decided it would be a good idea to use the killing grounds of the Faroe Islands as a backdrop for their latest outing. A beautiful area until the sea runs red with the blood of the sea mammals herded and hacked to death in a needless and cruel annual ritual.

The Faroe Islands are a self-governed archipelago of eighteen islands and are part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The islands' rugged, windswept beauty makes them a popular location for big-budget movies. The sad truth is that, along with spectacular countryside, the Faroe Islands are home to a horrifying yearly event known as Grindadrap or "The Grind", in which pods of whales and dolphins are driven toward shore, terrorized by hunters in motorboats, then slashed and stabbed to death. On September 12, 2021, 1,428 dolphins were slaughtered this way. Whales and dolphins have long been known to be highly intelligent animals who develop close bonds with their family and pod members. Their suffering, as they tried frantically to escape, only to see one another beached and bleeding, is staggering. This "tradition" is about celebrating Viking heritage. There is nothing to celebrate in this horror.

Let the giant studios, production companies, and distributors know that you care about this issue and that you want to see their commitment too. There is one simple thing they can do to send a clear message that they also stand against this brutal practice: stop using the Faroe Islands as a film location.
