Sea Shepherd’s Capt. Watson provides a statement on why all whaling should end now

In a Sea Shepherd statement, 7th July 2014, Captain Paul Watson states: “Sea Shepherd is dedicated to eradicating the obscenity of whaling worldwide. We equate the killing of whales with murder.

Taking the life of an intelligent, self aware, wild, sentient being is murder and every fabricated justification the murderers or those who sympathize with murder post, does not change that fact.

“We are not alone in this opinion. The government of India representing over one billion citizens officially recognizes dolphins as non-human persons and the killing of a person is an act of murder. It is also interesting that the Norwegian word for murder is “drap” and the Faroese themselves call their whale killing the Grindadrap or “whale murder.”

Sea Shepherd is not anti-Faroese. We are anti-murder and we believe in the conservation of life and of diversity and thus we do not oppose the Faroese for being Faroese, we oppose those particular Faroese citizens that indulge in cruelty, slaughter and ecological destruction.

Our objective is to make the entire world aware of this ongoing obscenity just as we are doing with the horrific murder of dolphins in Taiji, Japan.
