Greens call for naval surveillance of whaling
Greens Leader Bob Brown will be dockside with the Sea Shepherd fleet before it leaves from Hobart for Antarctic waters today.
Senator Brown has written to the minister for the environment, Tony Burke, requesting an Australian naval presence to surveil Japanese whaling in Australia's Antarctic waters.
"Sea Shepherd are the champions for the whales and have massive public backing in Australia and elsewhere around the world. The least our government can do is provide footage so that the world can see what an ugly slaughter this is."
