In the wake of Hayden Panettiere helping shed fresh attention on Japan’s dolphin slaughter, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is casting off to confront a Japanese Whaling Fleet. The organization, which has the backing of celebrities such as Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, and Pierce Brosnan is leaving Melbourne, Australia later this week to monitor and antagonize the Japanese. From the article,

“SSCS is repeating actions from last year. Paul Watson, captain of the SSCS ship last year, threatened to ram Japanese whalers with a giant “can opener” attached to his ship’s bow. This threat was not followed through, but society members tossed foul smelling chemicals onto the whalers’ ship decks and fixing steel plates onto the blood drain of the fleet’s factory ship.

Vasic said the organization would stop at almost nothing to help save the whales from the Japanese fleet. Vasic said: ‘Everything is on the table as long as it’s non-violent. I would rule nothing out.” He added: When we show up, the fleet tends to go on the run because of our reputation. When we’re pursuing them at high speed, they can’t hunt.'”

Japan continues to hunt whales under the guise of using such actions to study their habits. In reality, the meat generally ends up on dinner tables and is a lucrative trade for the country. Environmental group Greenpeace will also send a ship to monitor the fleet. We wish them luck in their efforts.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
