Greenpeace versus Japanse walvisvaart

In this photo released by Greenpeace, one of the inflatables from the Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza and MY Arctic Sunrise tries to hinder the transfer of minke whales by a catcher ship of the Japanese whaling fleet to the Nisshin Maru factory ship, in Antarctic seas in the Southern Ocean, Friday Jan. 6 2006. Greenpeace reported at least 20 minke whales had been slaughtered in the past 48 hours but the environmental activist group claimed some success, maintaining its tactics of harassment had allowed other whales to escape the harpoons.
