You finally spotted the link!! Good for you, only took 3 goes! Well done.
Yes I am contesting it, the person claiming he is a founding member is Paul Watson, so you cannot say this source has given him every benefit of the doubt, and even with that in this side, he still stinks to high heaven.
This is direct from the Greenpeace Website:
Paul Watson became active with Greenpeace in 1971 as a member of our second expedition against nuclear weapons testing in Amchitka, and went on to participate in actions against whaling and the killing of harp seals. He was an influential early member but not, as he sometimes claims, a founder.
Grepeace acknowledges Watson as an early member, he was not a founder, and he bloody was not either, Greenpeace was preceded by the "Don't Make A Wave Committee" please show me something with Watsons name on it from that organisation.
And now he is a pirate come terrorist.
Why do you keep pointing me at Australian politicians then? What is confusing is your wishy washy stance.
Sea Shepherd does not listen to anyone, or they would not be deliberately making matters worse for the sake of a TV show. Conservationists are asking them to rack off, politicians remain neutral and sway with public opinion. They will turn on the Sea Shepherd like Waston turned on Bethune when opinion sways.
You are supporting pirates probably because you are American, and refuse to take the blame, and hope to shift it, and like a good ally you expect Aussies to play along. No dice Yam.
Factoid: A Yam is a like a small potato here.
What Australian waters?
I gave you a map of your waters, I am still waiting for you to show me a mark on it where Australian waters have been breached. You are totally making that part up, and keep repeating it, so what else can I call it but a lie? Patricularly when you repeat this misinformation and I have you a map to show where you are right, but you have not done so, and I know why, because your claim is simply not true. Get upset about that all you like, it does not change the cold hard fact that Japanese Whalers do not enter Australian waters, that is completely made up Yam.
Prove it Yam, go ahead, I double dog dare you, show me on the map of Australian Waters where Whaling has breached it.
Money where you mouth is Yam, please mark on the map where our boundaries are breached. What you keep rabbiting on about is Antarctic claims, which are recognised by 4 LOUSY COUNTRIES 190 out of 194 countries DO NOT RECOGNISE THIS ANTARCTIC ClAIM and that is the BS the likes of Bob Brown base their loose rhetoric upon, but you should know better by now, you must be truly thick to still not understand that no boundaries have been breached, not one.
Stop telling Japan to get out of the Southern Whale Sacntuary unless you are on the UN or are Japanese, I keep telling you WE DO NOT WANT YOUR HELP KEEP YOUR MONEY MAKE YOUR TV SHOW SOMEPLACE ELSE WE DO NOT WANT YOUR "SO CALLED SUPPORT"
You are forcing your ideals down my entire countries throat, you are a hypocrite of international proportions. Just go bloody away and save the Harp Seals or something would ya?
Show me the marks on the provided map. If not then you are deliberately outright lying now, that task should really be quite simple according to yourself.
Because they did not break the law here in Australia, again, if you were to read a little, such simple questions would not confound you so easily. Look at the list of charges again, where are the warrants?
Australia has elections coming up, last thing they need right now is voter controversy. Labour will get the Sea Shepherd supporters as voters, I just hope more Aussies get educated each year and see the Sea Shepherds true agenda. I am disgusted in this government and hope when the new one comes in that they might be more partial to an more evenly based reporting of these pirates.
At least they know where our boundaries are, Watson has confused most of Australia so the average citizen really has no idea.
Australian Sovereignty has not been breached, The AAT Australian Antarctic Territory is recognised by 4 countries out of 194, so that is more than Japan against you there, no whaling has taken place in Australias EEZ, Whalers took a shortcut through it, and have been hung up to dry over that, but at the end of the day it's minor trespassing, nothing to get excited about, and certainly no whaling taking place there, and the Japanese do not breach the moratorium or they would be in court. Greenpeace is the only organisation who has made the Japanese nervous about breaching the moratorium, which they pulled support from when the US decided to reduce their allowed fishing territories. You know actual recognised boundaries that all parties recognise, not like your flimsy sovereign claim which is 100% pure steaming BS.
I have pretended nothing, I have only posted information that refutes your fantasy claims abut mythical sovereign boundaries. It's the law, and as I keep asking, can you please show me where Whalers have breached our sovereignty. I understand the law, and do not fall for some bleeding heart rhetoric on a TV show, based on the same dishonest SS principal like the Baby Harp Seal sign is. Do you understand that? I do not care how passionate you are, I do not care about your opinion, I do not care about your made up boundaries, and I do not care for your TV show, rack of someplace else and make it. It's lying sensationalist crap. I do not care how Japan looks all I care is what someone tries to actually have a go at stopping the barbarism instead of using TV to capitalise on it, and if you think anything else is going on, then you are only kidding yourself.
Use you so called laws to lock the Whalers up, go ahead. Make a TV show out of it, and run it from your own country please, it's not wanted down here. Some of us are smarter than to fall for that BS which only ensures another year of whaling.
I know it does not matter to you, I do not care, you do not seem to understand that I have not want to convert you, you are a mindless thug who thinks he can bully a whole nation because some fat idiot on TV said so. I do not know that you can be helped, all I will do is counter every piece of misinformation you post with the actual truth and the letter of the law to show the Sea Shepherd for what it is - a manipulating greedy private band of pirates come terrorists that capitalises from that which it claims to defend. They are terrorists, I have given you the list of charges, that is the law, terrorism is not a matter of opinion, but like those who supported the slaughter at 911 some do seem to be of that impression.
No I do not look confused in the eyes of my country, I would relish in debating Gillard over her bad management of the situation. But if you thunk I look confused in the eyes of or PM, then I am quite fine with that, I think she would become confused by having to tie shoelaces.
LOL, you are such an overbearing fool, the couch is the one place I would kill to spend time at, my worst problem is that there is only 24 hours in a day. Be nice to float about, pretend your some sort of an authority, and get paid to have Internet morons fawn over me, but hey one has to sleep at night as well. I often wonder how Watson manages that.
I will certainly vote against the current Government in the upcoming election, and perhaps you have just given me the inspiration for a campaign against them, involving the Sea Shepherd, and the graft and corruption going on there.
What you call spanking, most people realise is taunting, but spanking is good as a definition. When you "spank" an entire nation like Japan, get ready for repercussions, that is how things work, because believe it or not, the world is bigger than just you Yam. And Japan is going to respond to the spanking like a teenager would, by going twice as hard. Gee, that will help whaling wont it. Lets keep going until we have two massive fleets on the water in a pising contest and no whales, yeah, good show Yam.
