Justice for Activists, Justice for the Whales


Greenpeace New Zealand staged a whale stranding in Mission Bay, one of Auckland's most popular beaches, today, to highlight the court case of two activists for their part in exposing corruption in the Japanese whaling industry.

The action was part of an international peaceful protest directed at the Japanese government asking for justice for Junichi Sato and Toru Suzuki known as the 'Tokyo 2' and justice for the whales. The five metre inflatable minke whale was beached to symbolise their plight. Activists placed Japanese daimyo banners around the whale which read "Free the Tokyo 2 and Put Whaling on Trial".
