Minister Do-little cannot point the finger over whales – Greens

Media Release
Bob Brown 11 Jan 2007

"Federal Minister for the Environment Campbell's failure to intervene on Japanese whaling in Australia's Antarctic waters leaves him in no position to criticise the Sea Shepherd and its crew," Greens Leader Senator Bob Brown said today.
 
"Senator Campbell has condemned the Sea Shepherd but refused to send an Australian observation vessel to the Japanese killing grounds," Senator Brown said.
 
"This summer the Japanese are even targeting Hump Back whales which have returned from their breeding migration along the Australian coastline. The Government should send a surveillance naval vessel to record the slaughter and show the world what a terrible business killing whales is," Senator Brown said.
