In an effort to court publicity, sympathy, and donations Eco-terrorist group Sea Shepherd is claiming three of their crew were injured by grappling hooks and a bamboo pole as they were in the middle of committing an act of violence against Japanese whalers. slot oasis
The incident took place in the seas about 300 miles north of Mawson Peninsula off the coast of Antarctica, Eco-terrorist group Sea Shepherd claimed on their website.
Japanese video released by the whalers showed a water cannon on the Japanese ship being fired at a black rubber dingy, while unidentified projectiles appeared to be thrown at the Japanese ship by activists on the small vessel.
Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research website said the activists used knives to try to cut ropes, threw hooks at nets and tried to tangle the ship’s propellers with ropes.
“Two of the deployed ropes had iron weights attached to both ends. The SS activists threw ropes with hooks attached to their ends several times,” said the Institute, adding the anti-whaling protesters also hurled 30 bottles of paint. the wizard of oz slots online play
“When the activists started using a knife to cut the…float fender rope and net, the Japanese vessel crew used bamboo poles as a measure to push the boat back.”
ICR spokesman Glenn Inwood said “there’s also every chance they were hurt by their own hooks”.
This incident is similar to another deliberately manufactured publicity generating incident that occurred last week when Sea Shepherd claimed three Australian activists were being held as “prisoners” after they helped the activists trespass on to the Japanese vessel Shonan Maru No.2.
This resulted in a massive waste of Australian tax payers money as an Australian vessel was sent to retrieve the men. slots www
Exaggerations and outright dishonesty are a consistent theme for Sea Shepherd, and Paul Sheehan summarized it best in his article Eco pirates deserve a long haul, not a free trip home .
The great flaw in the environmental movement is the sanctimonious belligerence of so many of its protagonists, the lies and exaggerations, and the assumption that they are above the law and can disrupt and destroy the businesses of other people who are operating lawfully.
