Heroes of Forest and Sea to be Freed via #SeaShepherd
Forest Rescue activists Geoffrey Tuxworth, Simon Peterffy and Glen Pendlebury will not be charged with any crime and will not be taken to Japan. Our persistence in pointing to the evidence of where the boarding took place (inside the contiguous zone) and our persistence in pointing out what a travesty this is and how it reflects on the Labor Party certainly contributed to this decision. The Australian government is sending a ship to remove the three men from the Shonan Maru #2 as it heads towards the coast of Antarctica in pursuit of us on the Steve Irwin. It was a courageous operation, once again focusing international attention on the illegal slaughter of whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. Well done Geoffrey, Simon and Glen. As Senator Bob Brown said yesterday, the three of you are Australian heroes.
