Five days after Captain Peter Hammarstedt appealed to Environment Minister Greg Hunt for the Australian government to stand up and take diplomatic actions against Japan, the Japanese whaling fleet launched a third attack on The MV Bob Barker.
The assault came hours after The MV Steve Irwin's helicopter documented the whalers with a dead protected Minke Whale on deck, as well as the remains and severed head of an already-butchered whale poached from the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
“…Now I can say without a doubt that the Australian government has failed in its duty to take any action against the poachers of the Japanese whaling fleet. They knew this attack was imminent, and yet they did nothing. Hunt’s broken promises to monitor the whaling operations are evident in the broken bodies of the whales killed. The Australian government has abandoned not only the whales of the Southern Ocean, but also the brave Australian citizens who have stood up to protect them.” - Captain Peter Hammarstedt
At approximately 8:00am EST, next Saturday 8th March, The MV Sam Simon will be the first ship returning to Port after a successful #OperationRelentless mission.
Captain Adam Meyerson and his crew have done a wonderful job defending the oceans and whales and we want to celebrate their return.
Please COME DOWN AND GREET the ship as it docks and show the crew your appreciation for their efforts! Please Share this message! #SeaShepherd #MVSamSimon via
After a long afternoon the complexity of the submissions made it obvious that this was not a quick application. Justice James Eldeman reserved his judgement for sometime late afternoon, tomorrow (5th March) approximately 4PM WST.
Sea Shepherd Australia Managing Director Jeff Hansen and Sharon Burden, the mother of Kyle, who was mauled to death by a shark off Bunker Bay in 2011 were both present at court.
