Drama on the high seasHardly anyone in the Indian media seems to be reporting this very interesting story happening in the Antarctic Ocean. A Japanese whaling ship in those waters is facing heavy opposition from two ships belonging to environmental groups who are trying their damndest to prevent the whaling. However, the two groups (the more famous Greenpeace and the more militant Sea Shepherd Conservation Society) are also at loggerheads with each other.
The driving force behind Sea Shepherd also helped co-found Greenpeace, but later was thrown out of Greenpeace due to significant differences of opinion. In this case, tensions have been high as Sea Shepherd tried to stall the big whaler Nisshin Maru, leading to two of its sailors being taken "hostage" by the Japanese.
This is a very different world than what we are used to hearing about. Read more about it here.
