A whale of a time
I am writing to The Echo to ask why you are not covering the illegal whaling being conducted by the Japanese in the Pacific. Are you being muzzled by the authorities? The whalers are killing sperm whales and have rammed one of the Sea Shepherd ships which are trying to protect the whales. The whalers are killing anything they can get their harpoon into. They are killing the whales we watch off the East Coast. The Sea Shepherd is threatening to ram the whalers unless the governments of Australia and New Zealand intervene in this illegal rampant slaughter in our Pacific Ocean. Shame on the Australian press. Muzzled and ineffective, what happened to hard-nosed journalism? The whaling in the Pacific is illegal and yet our government lets it go unabated. This is an election issue and yet we see nothing in the press. Cmon guys, have a crack. Dont wait until Migaloo is no longer seen off the East Coast, but instead served up as school lunches in Japan. I am not a mad protester. Im not part of any organisation. Im just an ordinary tax-paying citizen, but Im wondering why were not talking about this issue. Its very sad.
