Go Greenpeace Go!

Greenpeace has caught up with the Japanese whalers and acting like a bunch of children caught doing something wrong, the cowardly Japanese whalers immediately scattered in different directions.

Greenpeace is keeping the chase and focus on the main ship, the Nisshin Maru. And while these cowards are on the run and trying to hide from Greenpeace, they are unable to live up to the whaler murderer image they have arrogantly created.

The radio message from Greenpeace to the Japanese fleet was in both Japanese and English language. It condemned Japan for the hunt and strongly encouraged them to return to port.

Their message:

"Your so-called scientific whaling is a hoax and has been dismissed as useless by the International Whaling Commission. Modern scientific research on whales does not require killing them."

Former federal environment minister in Australia, Ian Campbell, has joined the board of the Sea Shepherd organization.

In other Sea Shepherd news, Captain Paul Watson has been named one of 50 people who can save the planet.


"I get called quite a few things with pirate and eco-terrorist being the more polite labels. But you don't make change by being nice and polite. Change requires cages to be rattled, the boat to be rocked and even sunk sometimes and it requires a deep passionate commitment to righting wrongs and upholding justice especially when justice must take precedence over laws designed for vested interests."

Keep rattling those cages Mr. Watson. You've got my support.




  1. Good stuff! Yes, he's quite the hero.

  2. Yup ... I have a lot of admiration for the likes of Paul Watson who dedicate so much of their lives to issues like this - for the betterment of the planet and its future.

    Thank you as always HM, for stopping by ... I'm going to have to buy you a complimentary tshirt that says something like "I'm the #1 commentator on the Eye of the Dolphin and all I got was this lousy tshirt" :-D
