To get the new topic rolling, things are really heating up between Japanese whalers and activists.

SYDNEY A group of radical anti-whaling activists said they were pelted with bloody chunks of whale meat and blubber after their boat collided Friday with a Japanese whaling vessel in a dramatic Antarctic Ocean clash Japan condemned as "unforgivable."
Regardless of what you think of the practice, doesn't it seem like a bad idea to take on a 8000-ton ship equipped with whale-hunting tools?

These two incidents are worlds apart, IMO. One was for human rights, the other for whale rights? Sleep

This is a part of the investigation done by Greenpeace last year.

Two activists will be tried for exposing where the whale meat ends up and where it is labeled as cardboard.
