Greens Congratulate Sea Shepherd, Condemn Government on Whaling

Media Release
Bob Brown 9 Mar 2012

The Australian Greens have congratulated Sea Shepherd for helping end this year's whaling season but condemned the Australian Government for their lack of action.

 "Firstly, congratulations to Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd crews who have single-handedly  saved an estimated 600 or more whales while the Australian and New Zealand Governments did nothing," Greens Leader Bob Brown said today

 "267 whales dead is 267 too many and they would not have been killed if Australia's Minister for the Environment Tony Burke had taken an injunction in the world court and succeeded.

 "I know the Sea Shepherd crew will get a warm welcome when they come back to Hobart or Fremantle," Senator Brown said.
