Whale Rider

For awhile I thought that Greenpeace was becoming irrelevant, that they were taking ideological stands that got in the way of actually making progress on saving the world.

But damn if they don't have cojones. Two of their boats have been trailing and harassing the Japanese whalers that are slaughtering minke and fin whales for 'scientific research' [read: sushi]. When one boat tried harpooned and tried to haul aboard this minke, activist Mikey Resto lept onto the whale's back - in gale force winds - to stop them.

I'm in complete awe.
