Whaling: Tsunami funds, law suit, and Sea Shepherd's pilot - the truth
Reading many headlines appearing on Australian news sites and mimicked in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, leads one to believe something that is not true. The money given to the Japanese whaling industry is not coming from charitable donations made to assists the victims of the 11 March 2011 earthquake / tsunami.
Those funds are still be administered by the charities at their description. The money given to the Japanese mariners are from the Japanese government, from the Japanese taxpayers. Basically this is the concern of the Japanese people and Japanese tax payers, all others: mind your own business.
The money is part of funds allocated for the redevelopment of the impacted areas. Part of this redevelopment is too inspire the economic sector of the communities located on the coastal regions. The communities earn the livelihood from the sea and the feeder businesses to this industry. The whaling mariners are part of this community. They live, shop, and work in these communities. The whales they bring back are processed in these communities, all of which spur economic activity contributing to the development of the region.
The Institute of Cetacean Research (ICR) has filed a lawsuit in these here United States of America, the state of Washington (located in the Pacific Northwest of the USA), in a federal court looking to get an injunction to stop Sea Shepherd’s dangerous and illegal activities in the Southern Ocean. Sea Shepherd organization has its organizational charter issued from the state of Washington.
The cult leader Captain Kangaroo, Admiral Beauregard Watson, the Paulrus, said something to the effect this is a frivolous lawsuit and will basically have no impact upon their activities in the Southern Ocean. Perhaps so, however as their hero Chairman Mao Ze dong (Mau Tse Tung) is reported to have said, “Every long journey begins with one small step.”
If the injunction is granted, it is but a small step in the right direction.
The cult leader Captain Kangaroo, Admiral Beauregard Watson, the Paulrus has been reported to have accused the Australian government of denying Sea Shepherd’s American helicopter pilot Chris Aultman a visa to enter the country. Leading people to believe perhaps there is a sinister reason, collusion between the governments of Australia and Japan. Really?
