When a movement’s leaders start proclaiming themselves on “the side of the angels”, calling their opponents “the evil side”, that’s when I walk away from that movement.
The Steve Irwin, a Sea Shepherd boat, has tracked down Japanese whaling ships, and is getting ready to do stop the hunt.
Alice Newstead hung on huge hooks used to catch sharks in a storefront window in London, the hooks piercing the skin on her back.
Sea Shepherd’s mission is to protect the environmental integrity through “innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas.” They regard the Japanese whale hunt as illegal, and so have sent their new ship, the Steve Irwin, named after the deceased Australian of Crocodile Hunter fame to the Antarctic to harass Japanese ships trying to hunt whales. Two protesters from Sea Shepherd boarded a whaling ship, the Yushin Maru, and were held prisoner there, with plans to transport them to Japan to face charges of piracy.
