Like I said to someone earlier - please boycott us. Then your Maersk will run on fumes and eventually stop. Because before good disappear from our markets, your fleets won't have any fuel to run on. Please boycott us, please?

You know what really saddens me? I lived in Denmark for 2 years and loved everything about it - a long time ago. Until a few days ago I used to tell everyone how wonderful Scandinavian people are, how civilised Scandinavians are... I really loved the Scandinavian people and way of life, now I'm seriously having second thoughts, especially when I read about the experiences foreigners have recently been having there. I used to fight with a friend of mine currently living in Denmark and now Sweden about how wonderful you all are, he told me the Denmark I knew is dead and all that is left now is hate and racism. I totally believe him now.
