    What a bunch of maniacs.
    It's a wonder those Japanese haven't blown them out of the water with a Mark 45 mounted gun yet. I'll bet that would make the Discovery Channel's ratings go up.

    those people are so F-ing stupid. there are better ways to get them to stop what they are doing. i dont condone whaling, but you cant just board another boat and attempt to disable it and/ or try to cut it off and think that nothing is going to happen

    Looks like a murdered-out RXT on the back of it. 28 sec into the film.

    +1, I'm confused on the first vid. That footage is being taken from the whale ship correct? Why would they let Discovery channel or whoever have the footage? Anyways, its absolutely moronic to provoke a big ship like that and not think anything is going to happen. Do the treehuggers think the law of physics does not apply to them? Lil boat vs. big boat, gee I wonder who wins. Also in the second vid, is that a laser pointer they were using? Why not just shoot spit balls or just throw roses? Kinda IMO.

    "Sea Shepherd is a violent organization whose tactics may endanger the lives of fishermen and whalers." - Greenpeace

    From what I can gather, PETA co-founder and former chairman Alex Pacheco started his career with the Sea Shepherd Group, in the late 1970s. As you may know; PETA is the group that has been running a campaign to "re-brand" fish as "Sea Kittens" so people will stop eating fish. (I'm not kidding, Google it).

    "Sierra Club board member Paul Watson's violent activist group, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, has received funding from PETA. In a 2002, the Broward Sierra News promoted "a vegetarian lifestyle as a way to counter the alleged abuse animals endure to feed a hungry and growing global population." The newsletter openly plugged PETA and their mantra that meat-eating in general, and livestock operations in particular, are a cause of world hunger and animal abuse. In 2002, Sierra Club activists in Florida teamed with PETA to pass a ballot initiative that extends constitutional rights to pregnant pigs."

    Direct actions have included scuttling and disabling commercial whaling vessels at harbour, ramming other vessels, throwing glass bottles of butyric acid on the decks of vessels at sea, boarding of whaling vessels while at sea, and seizure and destruction of drift nets at sea. As of 2009, Paul Watson has said that the organization has sunk ten whaling ships while also destroying millions of dollars worth of equipment. He considers the actions to be against "criminal operations" and has called the group an "anti-poaching organization".

    Critics point out that Sea Shepherd's actions constitute violations of international law. Sea Shepherd has responded by stating that its actions constitute enforcement of international maritime law under the United Nations World Charter for Nature A 2008 academic paper by researchers at Monash University concluded that group "may be best categorized as a vigilante group, because they say they are seeking to enforce a legal status quo because of states' and the international community's inabilities or unwillingness to do so."

    Attacking and sinking other ships has led to reports of injuries to their sailors and the Sea Shepherd crew; including concussions and complications from chemical attacks.

    In testimony on "The Threat of Eco-Terrorism" given to the US Congress in 2002, Sea Shepherd is the first group mentioned for having "attacked commercial fishing operations". An earlier Canadian intelligence report on "Single Issue Terrorism" stated that "Watson and his supporters have been involved in a number of militant actions against whale hunting, driftnet fishing, seal hunting and other related issues" and mentions "activities against logging operations in Canada". The group has been accused of eco-terrorism by the Japanese government. Due to the 2008 operations against Canadian seal hunters, Danny Williams, premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, called Watson a terrorist and said that the Sea Shepherds were not welcome in the province.

    Before founding Sea Shepherd, Watson was an early member of Greenpeace. He left in 1977 after being expelled from the board of directors due to his confrontational methods. Greenpeace has criticized Sea Shepherd for the group's tactics, particularly regarding its interaction with whaling ships while at sea. The rival environmental group maintains Sea Shepherd is a violent organization whose tactics may endanger the lives of fishermen and whalers. Greenpeace has called Watson a violent extremist and will no longer comment on his activities. Greenpeace is also critical of the group on its website and state: "By making it easy to paint anti-whaling forces as dangerous, piratical terrorists, Sea Shepherd could undermine the forces within Japan which could actually bring whaling to an end."
