The group had a vessel siezed by the Canadian Government and it is to be sold. The Group has publicly said that whom ever ends up with it "BEWARE we will take back what was wrongfully taken from us".

Wow!!

I think I now know why whales end up beaching themselves they obviously watch whale wars and realise that if that is what is being sent to save them there is no hope.

And who was in charge of the bow line?
