Sea Shepherd Russian TV Shonan Maru 2

Sea Shepherd Russian TV Shonan Maru 2

Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson was interviewed by RT news once known at “Russia Today” and is a network based in Russia.  The interviewer (news reader) was in Washington, DC. 

During the interview Mr. Watson said the following: 
He said at 3:11
“We are not a protest organization we don’t protest anything we intervene against illegal activities and a….. killing whales by Japan in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary is illegal.”


Then why did he go into the Faroe Islands?  The whaling in the Faroe Islands is in the Faroe Islands and not in a make-believe whale sanctuary in the Southern Ocean. 

When he speaks is he aware of his past activities?

Another peculiar aspect of this interview he did not riddle it with blaming Japan. 

The RT interview:

Sea Shepherd illegal activity documented by Animal Planet

Below is a video link posted by Animal Planet on YouTube.  It shows Sea Shepherd attempting to disable the Japanese vessel Shonan Maru No. 2.  This video is part of their series “Whale Wars,” a program documenting the illegal activities of Sea Shepherd. 

In the video Sea Shepherd in their zodiacs attempt to plug the cooling vents on the Shonan Maru No.2.  The eco-terrorist believes by plugging the cooling vents it will cause the engines of the vessel to overheat and disabled the ship.

Basically they want to leave this ship and crew disabled dead in the frigid waters.  Animal Planet did a service by documenting this vicious, illegal, and dangerous activity of Sea Shepherd.  It is a clear demonstration of the Japanese passivity in the face of Sea Shepherd’s belligerent illegal behavior.    

They start the video off with a joke masquerading as a disclaimer:

“The following program contains commentary and opinions that do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Animal Planet or the show’s producers. “

Really?  The fact that the producers of Animal Planet at Whale Wars inception made no attempt to video the Japanese perspective clearly illustrates Animal Planet’s approval and support of Sea Shepherd’s activities.

Animal Planet has tried many times to get cameras on the illegal whaling ships and every time it's offered, the illegal whalers decline. How about you do a little research first.
