Sea Shepherd Shuts Down Antarctic Whaling

The Sea Shepherd vessel the Bob Barker, blocking the slipway of the Nisshin Maru

The Sea Shepherd vessel the Bob Barker, blocking the slipway of the Nisshin Maru

Our friends aboard the Sea Shepherd vessel the Bob Barker have found the whaling fleet, and caught up to the Nisshin Maru factory ship. The Bob Barker is blocking the slipway of the factory ship, which means the Nisshin Maru won’t be able to take on or process any whales. This means that despite the attacks against Sea Shepherd ships by the massive and government-funded Japanese whaling fleet in the past couple months, the unarmed Bob Barker and its tiny crew of volunteer vegans have still managed to stop this year’s Antarctic whaling operations.

Four other whaling harpoon vessels are surrounding the Bob Barker, including the Shonan Maru #2, which rammed and sunk the SSCS vessel the Ady Gil. But as long as the Bob Barker is blocking the slipway of the whaling factory ship, the harpoon vessels and their arsenals won’t be able to continue whaling operations.

    I don’t think all the members of the crew are vegan when at home but Sea Shepherd does cook only vegan meals while on board.

    This whaling has to stop.
    I sent an email protest to the Japanese Embassy.
    They sent me an email about how important it was to kill 1,000 whales a year for research. They won’t answer me any more.
    Please send them an email of protest.
    It’s all I can think of to change this slaughter.

    I just read that they got rammed again over the weekend. How about a protest at the Japanese Embassy and/or the UN…maybe hit one in the morning and walk over to the other for the afternoon. Get some media…maybe do it when Bob Barker is in town and get him to show up. Any interest in NYC?

    If you think for one minute that Fat Face Pauly wat-a Son-of-a-bitch is vegan you’re dreaming.
    That bloated piece of shit is a disgrace to the rest of the human race. If he’s soooo concerned about animals over humans do me a favor and jump in front of a bus.
