Whaling inaction

Media Release
Bob Brown 18 Nov 2010

The Government says action in the International Court against Japanese whaling will 'take years' but has no action plan to prevent the slaughter in Antarctic waters this summer, said Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown. 

Senator Brown told the Senate that while Australia's government takes no action against the arrogant and disdainful Japanese whalers, two to ten thousand whales will be killed.

Referring to humpback and southern right whales currently off the Tasmanian coast, Senator Brown called for naval surveillance of the whaling as Sea Shepherd prepares to go to obstruct the whaling.
