Norwegian Pirates Begin Killing Again
The Norwegians murdered their first whale of the season this week-end. They slaughtered a calf.
The Norwegian fishery bureaucrats refer to the Minke whales as the cockroaches of the oceans and are using them as a scapegoat for over-fishing by humans, blaming the whales for the diminishment of the fish.
A recent poll showed that almost two thirds of Norwegians believe that it is unacceptable for a whale to take more than 15 minutes to die once shot. Norway has been defying the international moratorium on commercial whaling since 1986.
In 1992, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society scuttled the outlaw whaler Nybraena in the Lofoten Islands and two years later scuttled the outlaw whaler Senet in Southern Norway. Since then numerous Norwegian whalers have been deliberately sunk, the latest being the Willassen Senior sunk in August 2007 by Agenda 21 agents.
