ECO-Pirates. "Save the whales & Kill the sailors!!"



The Crew of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's (SSCS) vessel, the Farley Mowat, pose on the bow of their ship in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, Antarctica on Saturday, Jan. 14 2006. SSCS and its crew are in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary for their annual Antarctica campaign to stop the Japanese whaling fleet from poaching whales in the Southern Ocean. The crew of 44 were at sea for 50 days on board their 40 meter ship chasing the fleet, conducting direct actions against the whalers in an attempt to stop them from meeting their quota of 935 minke whales and ten endangered fin whales.



Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) crew-member, Marc Oosterwal on board their ship, the Farley Mowat, welds a large blade or "can-opener" on the starboard side of the ship in preparation to confront the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, Dec. 20, 2005. The can-opener is one of many devices created by the crew to foul the Japanese fleet, the large blade is used to slice the hull of a ship.



First Mate, Alexendar Cornelissen, of the Farley Mowat, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's ship, inventories smoke bombs and butyric acid before distributing it to the crew in preparation for confronting the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, Jan. 6, 2006.

People like this amaze me. They will go to the ends of the earth to save animals yet they can't see that their actions put people's lives in danger. (Or they do and don't care.)

If that "can-opener" they use happen to sink the Japanese ship I doubt they'd even attempt to rescue its' sailors.

They have the mind set of communists that think killing 1000 people so they'd be able to feed 100 makes perfect sense.

I guess that's why they're called "Watermelons", Green on the outside Red in the middle.
