My name is Samuel Rostøl, and I'm a norwegian who has travelled to the Faroe Islands to observe and document the Grind as a volunteer for Sea Shepherd. I'd also like to add that I'm here wanting dialogue, not fights. I think the best way to create change is through proper conversations rather than attacks.

A while back my drone was shot at Hvannasund, and I've now returned for another visit to the Faroe Islands. Yesterday I was at the Hvannasund grindadrap, and while I arrived too late to document the killing, I went to the beach to livestream video from the catch.

While livestreaming me a local participant of the hunter recognized me by watching the livestream, and he came over to me and started shoving me around. I asked him to calm down, and said that I wasn't doing anything illegal. I also turned my camera towards him to film him. The next moment he said he would kill me if I filmed him. He repeated the threat while drawing his fingers across his throat.

You can view the livestream here: https://www.facebook.com/OpBloodyFjords/videos/892152751645574/

The first attack starts at 4min 30s, but the threat is seen at 4:56 and repeated at 5:06. "I will kill you" he clearly states. 

Later I was also physically attacked by an older man who seemed to be drunk.

The ordeal will naturally be reported to the police.

With my best regards,
Samuel Rostøl
