has kept our ship the /Farley Mowat/ confiscated for 74 days and counting.
As the amount the Canadian government owes Sea Shepherd increases, we keep
ourselves busy working globally for the oceans. I am currently traveling
in Chile for the International Whaling Commission (IWC) meeting. As can
be expected, not a whole lot of positive progress for the whales is happening
as Japan throws its weight around, and so we begin preparations to launch
a major offensive against whaling...
being interviewed in ChileCaptain Watson is currently in Santiago, Chile
to speak out against illegal whaling at the 60th annual IWC meeting. After
quietly entering the country through customs, Captain Watson was allowed
to check into his room in the hotel where the conference is happening- quite
the turn around from last year's IWC conference where he was denied entrance.
Regardless, this year's conference seems full of the same banal rhetoric
that will lead to little change. Looks like Sea Shepherd will be returning
to the Southern Ocean to defend the whales, since no one else seems willing
to hold the Japanese accountable.

Shepherd Prepares to Mount a Major Offensive Against Whaling*
Australian Customs ServiceIt looks like the task of stopping illegal Japanese
whaling is now in the hands of Sea Shepherd. Australia has backed down from
aggressively opposing Japanese whaling operations, opting instead to support
Japanese/Australia trade relations over the interests of the vast majority
of Australian citizens.
Captain Watson says, "We intend to hit Japan harder than ever with
new tactics, new equipment and with a renewed determination to shut down
their illegal whaling activities. We will never retreat and we will not
compromise - there can be no acceptance or compromising with the taking
of endangered species inside an established whale sanctuary in violation
of a global moratorium on whaling. We don't compromise with eco-terrorists."
